It was mankind's thirst for the unknown that helped to discover the New World, set foot on the moon, and drink from a nondescript white can found in the mailbox and labeled “unknown beverage.” Conquer an aquatic mystery with today's Groupon from Destin Snorkel. Choose between two options:
- For $35, you get a snuba adventure (up to a $75 value).
- For $15, you get an all-day snorkel adventure (up to a $30 value).
Lead by friendly, aqua-savvy guides, Destin Snorkel whisks sea-seekers on tours of underwater vistas on two Coast-Guard-approved passenger boats. Snuba diving combines the elegance of snorkeling with the thrill of scuba diving by using a shallow-water diving system. Like divers of yore, swimmers breathe underwater via a 20-foot air line connected to a standard scuba tank. Snuba divers begin in shallow water under the supervision of experienced divers, then dive midwater and near-bottom depths, where they can come face-to-face with a new range of fauna and peek into the family life of fish as they swim peacefully around their fireplaces.
All-day snorkeling trips offers aspiring Cousteaus the flexibility to arrive and leave when they want, as well as snorkeling gear for participants without their own equipment. Snorkelers can choose between two all-day options: hop on to the Reef Runner, which ships off at 9 a.m. and is accessible via shuttle boat throughout the day; or take a two-stop snorkeling tour, which offers snorkelers a variety of underwater views while riding on the Kokomo, then moves on to the Destin Jetties for kayaking and Holiday Isle Beach. Snorkelers should bring sunscreen, a beach towel, a camera or courtroom sketcher, and lunch.

Under the right guidance, the clear blue waters around Destin's harbor become visible from every angle—the air, the surface, or deep below. Destin Snorkel leads a comprehensive roster of area adventure tours, granting guests total flexibility to join or leave their excursion at any time. Guides steer one of three boats through the bay, keeping all their participants' needed snorkeling or snuba gear onboard and unhaunted by pirate ghosts to allow frequent plunges into waters rich with seashells and wildlife. When not pausing at shallow-water dive sites, boats embark on day cruises for dolphin sightseeing tours or at night to showcase fireworks over the harbor skyline. Sea kayaks also allow visitors to venture off on their own into the waters around Crab Island and Holiday Isle.
Alternatively, FFA-certified flight instructors provide a different perspective, soaring over the coastline in beach-discovery flights. During any of the cruises and tours, guides may expound on the local ecosystem and the harbor's history, revealing whether the town's first civilians ever taught dolphins how to open their eyes above water.
