Famous Shipwrecks are Right Out Your Front Door if You Stay in a Sandestin Vacation Rental

Divers will travel the world over looking for the best dive spots. Luckily for them, the Gulf floor just off of Destin, Florida is the final resting place of some of the nation's most accessible shipwrecks. World-class divers travel from all over the planet love to check out these great spots. These ships were all sunk as part of a reef creation program designed to rehabilitate the underwater life of the Florida panhandle's Gulf Coast. Sandestin beach rentals mean that this wonderful ecosystem is right out your front door.

What Are The Ships?

The most famous ships on the sea floor are the Miss Louise, the Mohawk Chief and the Thomas Hayward. All were deliberately sunk over the last 30 years to facilitate the creation of artificial reefs. The older ones have been there long enough that they are literally teeming with ocean life. The deepest of these shipwrecks is a mere 90 feet underwater, easily accessible to trained and certified divers. These artificial reefs have done wonders to bring back the marine life of the coastal waters. Both large and small fish have made these areas their main habitat and the same attractions that bring scores of divers help to keep the wildlife vibrant and diverse. This, in turn, attracts more fish and the fisherman who catch them for fun and sport. Sandestin vacation rentals are thus popular with a wide variety of sport vacationers.

Can I Rent Gear In Town?

Sandestin beach rentals are adjacent to many of the town's diving and scuba shops. These facilities can assist the vacationer in acquiring their certification and will rent equipment to those who already have their cards. Destin homes and condos put the wonderful world of diving at your fingertips.
