Re: Video - Fall Highlights From The Reef

Thanks, guys! It is so much fun to be out there when the water is that clear.

Going Nuts - I'm just snorkeling. The water is between ~10 feet deep at the front part of the reef (nearest the shore) and maybe 15-17 feet at the back end.

Video - Fall Highlights From The Reef

The water was spectacularly clear for several days this fall. I put together a short video of some of the more interesting sea life that I crossed paths with between September 30 and November 18. The water temp is still bearable without a wetsuit, but just barely. [video]https://www.youtube.com/wat...

Re: Navarre beach sand renourishment

Yes, the project has been completed and no beaches are closed.
Entry into the water is exactly the same; no steeper, no shallower.
Yes, the beach is much wider now so the distance to the water's edge is quite a bit further...which is a good thing!

Re: Pensacolakid's micro Navarre visit

Loved your official report as always, P'Kid! I have to say though...I thought the sand they pumped onto the beach this year was much whiter than the last time (was it 2006? 2007?) It even "sings" when you walk on it like it used to pre-Ivan. It's also much finer, I think. The last renourishment the ...

Snorkeling Video - Starfish!

Shot this back in mid-May at walkover #10 when the beach renourishment was still well east of there. In the 15+ years I've been regularly visiting Navarre Beach I've never seen starfish before so this was completely unexpected! And the floor was littered with sand dollars. Millions of them. Cast of ...

Re: Roccos has closed!

Definitely give me a shout when you're in town, P'Kid.

I heard today that the owners of the Rocco's building DOUBLED - not raised, but doubled - the rent starting in January.

Ditto. When we heard it was going to be an Italian restaurant, my wife & I both scratched our heads.

I've never heard an exact figure, but I have heard from several people that the rent there is astronomical.

Re: Please tell me last night was a one time thing!

It was so poorly planned and laid out that it's almost comical. There was virtually zero advertising so the crowd was about 1/2 of what they were expecting (thank you!). The closest parking was the boat ramp lot and there was no shuttle to the stage , which was toward the east end of the park! I mea...

Re: Pensacolakid's September One Day Adventure

As always, I enjoyed your trip review P'kid! Those rays are graceful and beautiful to watch. One of my very favorite things about the beach is that you jut never know what you might see! Every time you go you have the potential to see something that you've never seen before...and every once in a whi...

Re: It will be dead calm on Tuesday

Yes indeed, and I'm looking forward to diving and filming. I've got some video from the past few weeks that I'll get edited and posted in the coming days. Finally saw an octopus at the reef last week. They've been inhabiting the reef for a long time, I just hadn't been able to spot one until last we...

You can throw a rock in any direction and not hit another huma...
