Re: Navarre's underwater reef camera is a first for the Gulf

https://www.navarresciencestation.org/reef-tv Top video is a recording from a day with great visibility back in Dec. I think. The second one is the live feed, takes a second to start, I've been checking in every few days ever since Feb. and most of the time I haven't had issue seeing the live feed....

Re: Navarre's underwater reef camera is a first for the Gulf

This is a very cool addition to the reef. I dove the reef back at the end of February and it looks like aside from the streaming underwater footage the base also makes a great home for a couple octopus! I noticed what looked like lots of small barnacles attaching to the dome this last week, is the a...

Re: Another Reef Dive

No problem, I've enjoyed all the vids/pics from the reef from others, stumbling on this forum is how I found out about and became interested in checking out the reef.

Another Reef Dive

We did another dive at the Navarre reef today, it was a beautiful day. Light wind, sunny, and water wasn't bad about 12'-15' of visibility. We finally spotted the resident octopus! http://i1124.photobucket.com/albums/l570/DarkGTCS/octo1_zps7fp1wb6z.jpg http://i1124.photobucket.com/albums/l570/DarkGT...

Navarre Water conditions

Has anyone snorkeled or dived the reef or in the Navarre Beach area in the last week? How is the water looking? From the cam it looks good (less algae and stuff in the water), three weeks ago it was pretty bad with maybe 5' of visibility. Was itching to try it out this weekend.

Thanks

Re: Dive Navarre Reef Saturday

We tried the reef again this past Saturday, nice day, light wind and sunny but the visibility was pretty bad. Maybe 8 feet, but we still had fun and actually saw a good deal of critters anyway. The compass came in handy though :D We saw flounder, stingray, one turtle made a brief appearance, lots of...

Re: Dive Navarre Reef Saturday

We waited until Sunday to give the reef a shot. Weather was great, very easy swim from shore, walking with all the scuba gear from parking lot is the hard part! Water visibility looked really good (25 ft give or take) but there was a lot of particulate in the water, reminent algae and seaweed I supp...

Re: Dive Navarre Reef Saturday

I think so, sounds like you turn left after crossing the bridge and go as far east in the parking lot as possible and then look for markers on beach that line up with the reef. High tide is 10ish for Saturday so we were going to try to be there by 9, hopefully the tstorms hold off. Not sure what to ...

Dive Navarre Reef Saturday

My wife and I just completed our OW cert and are eager to dive again. We've heard the reef at navarre beach is a fairly easy dive so we figured we would try it this Saturday.

Any tips or recommendations would be much appreciated.

Thanks
