The Mongoose Snorkel Boat
The Mongoose is a shaded 33 foot custom pontoon boat designed to carry 25 passengers. The vessel has an easy on/off ladder and comfortable seating for all of its passengers. The Mongoose is a shallow drafted vessel, therefore allowing it to get into shallow water for the comfort of the inexperienced snorkeler or diver.
ScubaTech provides the finest in snorkeling equipment with professional dive masks, dry snorkels, fins, and snorkeling vests for your safety. When needed ScubaTech will provide a wetsuit to ensure the comfort of your snorkel dive. The Mongoose will also provide snacks and soft drinks, as well as fresh water and coolers for all the passengers.
Don’t know how to snorkel? No problem, the Mongoose’s professional staff will teach you how to snorkel and the use of dry snorkels makes the learning process very easy.
ScubaTech offers daily Choctawhatchee Bay snorkeling trips to Destin’s East Pass Jetties and the Choctawhatchee Bay Grass Flats. The sites to which we choose are controlled by tide and water conditions to ensure the safest and best visibility possible. Charter times vary daily due to the changing tide schedule. We try to operate our vessel, the Mongoose, before or during the high tide to ensure the clearest water possible for the snorkelers and SCUBA Divers to enjoy. Although ScubaTech tries to run its charters on the best tidal conditions, please note this is not the Caribbean, so the visibility and marine life will vary.
The Destin Jetties are the large rock formations at the entrance of the Destin East Pass. These rock formations are home to many species of marine life. Please see our photos of the Jetties and the many marine fish and crabs that live there. The Choctawhatchee Grass Flats are a shallow water site in the bay that is a nursery to many small, juvenile species that live amongst the grass. You might even find some small sand dollars in this area. Snorkeling in Destin, Fl is just a call away.
