Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Perdido Pass

Visibility can be very good but with lots of plankton. Lots of marine life to see. Look for juveniles and other tiny things. Going either direction on main road, exit on service road just east of bridge; park near the beach at the northwest corner of the service road. Short walk to beach and dive between first piling on shore and first piling in water. Quick drop off to 25 feet and dive around the piling. Dive at high tide or just before (8 a.m. is a good time to get there). Lots of locals dive this site but usually you will have it to yourself or just a couple of other divers. Strong currents with gentler areas near the piling.

We've been many times throughout summer months, May through Oct. Very nice snorkeling. Heavy current. Dive both sides when viz is good, on inside of jetty side of the pass, free dive down 15 to 20 feet on left side water is 6 to 12 all the way to end of jetty. Tons of little fish near shore and hiding in rocks, out deeper, sheepshead, pompano and some tropicals large shells, some crabs, watch out, there are some eel type fish ALL OVER the rocks, be careful not to crush them, they are everywhere. Tons of sea life. We did see small sharks swimming along close to shore and a slightly larger, probably 4 foot. Hot times in 2020.

A really good dive! This site is very 'tide' dependent. Always dive on a slack tide. Lots of fish and good visibility if the tide is right.
