Grab your mask and snorkel! The first of thirteen artificial reefs has been placed in the waters of South Walton and you’re about to get a great view of our area sea life!

The first of these reefs was just placed this morning in the waters south of Grayton Beach State Park and are about 350 feet from the shoreline. In addition to providing great sites for snorkelers, divers and paddle boarders to enjoy, these reefs will also help sustain the current and promote new growth of coral and other essential sea creatures.

If you love to dive, fish and explore the underwater depths, a vacation on Scenic 30A is a great choice. In addition to swimming in the Gulf of Mexico, you can always explore the many coastal dune lakes, a geographical phenomenon you can only enjoy in current part of the world and ideal for kayaking and paddle boarding.

In addition to the Grayton Beach reef, there are deployments planned in the communities of Miramar Beach, Topsail Hill and Inlet Beach scheduled to follow. Be sure to visit them and explore the depth of our waters during your next South Walton vacation! For more information, visit
