    Need a place to swim in Destin area

    I'm going to Destin, FL for spring break!!
    I was wondering if anyone knew of a team, Masters or USS, that I could swim with a few times during my stay. Any suggestions?

    According to the USA Swimming web site Maverick Aquatics (Ft. Walton Beach) is in the area. Their web site is www.maverickaquatics.com
    I assume they work out at the YMCA Fort Walton Beach, Florida

    And, unless Im mistaken, there is an excellent body of water, the Gulf of Mexico, within spitting distance from Destin. Why be confined in a pool, when you can do real swimming?

    Thanks Rob! I will try to contact Maverick Aquatics. I will definitely TRY to swim in the beautiful Gulf of Mexico! I'm just afraid it may be too cold in early April and I don't have a wetsuit! I usually "swim to the Jettes" and back from where I stay. It is a BEAUTIFUL beach with clear blue-green water. Maybe it will be warm or I can borrow a friend's wetsuit! Thanks again!
