Other Things To Do in Perdido Key

Charters and rentals are available for all kinds of water sports, from diving and snorkeling to sailing and parasailing. The Gulf waters off the coast of nearby Pensacola hold more than 100 charted wrecks and reefs, making the area a popular destination for divers.

Divers and snorkelers will also enjoy exploring the offshore areas of Gulf Islands National Seashore, located at the eastern end of Perdido Key and teeming with marine life. The park also has picnic tables and restrooms, and is an ideal spot to spend a day at the beach. Nature lovers will enjoy the ranger-led walks through its dune, wetland, forest, and marsh habitats.

Another fascinating spot for snorkelers is at the eastern end of Perdido Key, where the waters hide the underwater ruins of Fort McRee. The fort, which dates to the 1830s, was heavily damaged during the Civil War.

If you want a break from the beach, check out the National Museum of Naval Aviation. The museum, on the grounds of the Pensacola Naval Air Station, houses 150 restored aircraft, interactive exhibits, more than 4,000 Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard aviation artifacts, and an IMAX theater. And best of all, admission is free.
