Just off the beach, about 500 yards, is an artificial reef for snorkeling. On a beautiful sunny day when the water is clear and calm, you may see bottlenose dolphins, sea turtles, angelfish, napper, lizardfish and more.
Island Hopping in Perdido
There are a few small islands in the coastal waters of Perdido Key where Ole River and The Intercoastal Waterway meet. These small sandy Islands have a few trees and a little vegetation with white sand beaches perfect for a paddling destination.
To access these Islands, you can launch from the public kayak launch located off River Road on Perdido Key or at the boat ramp at Galvez Landing. If you want a bigger adventure, try launching from Big Lagoon State Park and paddling the Intercoastal Waterway to the small islands.
