Perched on the border between the Florida and Alabama Gulf coasts, Pensacola, Florida is well known for its beautiful white sand beaches, fantastic fishing, a rich history which dates back to the 1500s, and as the home for Navy Flight Training and the Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Squadron. Pensacola has however been long overlooked as the incredible dive destination that it really is. The Pensacola area offers more than a thousand individual dive sites, catering to all experience levels and interests. Whether you're new to the sport or an experienced adventurer, you can see it all here.
