Destin Snorkel and Snuba was AWESOME. They took us out to the jettys where we could snorkel and check out the marine wildlife or if we wanted to – to Snuba dive. I can’t recommend this enough. If you have ever wanted to dive but were not sure about getting all the certifications and possibly going too far under water, then Snuba is for you. If you are just visiting the area and don’t have time to get dive certified, then Snuba is for you.
Basically you wear a weight belt to achieve zero buoyancy, a mask and a regulator that is hooked to a tank floating on a raft that you share with up to 3 other intrepid explorers. There is also a videographer that is shooting throughout your trip and offers a dvd for purchase after. I made sure to get the dvd as it had some great clips throughout our excursion. They also have a book on board showing the different types of marine life in the area to familiarize you with what you can see throughout your trip.
This was easily one of my favorite parts of Brandcation and I can’t wait to bring my family back to try it!
Last weekend I attended Brandcation DESTINation held at the Emerald Grande. It was wonderful! I met an amazing group of women who also happen to be professional bloggers. Being around them was fun, educational, and uplifting. Thank you ladies.
In addition to this wonderful group I connected with, I also was able to develop relationships with a few brands and sponsors and I want to thank all of them. Without them, Brandcation would not be possible!
First and foremost is Emerald Grande. We stayed onsite at the resort and it was utterly delightful. More on this experience soon!
Next was Destin Snorkel which was an amazing experience. Again, more soon!
We went on the Scurvy Dogs cruise on the Buccaneer Pirate Ship.
Places we ate included the Grand Vista Grill onsite at Emerald Grande, Jim N Nicks BBQ , Crab Island Cantina, La Famigila, Harry T’s, and Starbucks.
We also had a good number of swag items and sponsors!

I will admit to being slightly new to the blogging community. I have posted via MySpace and Facebook, and even kept up a professional blog, but this is my first personal blog. That being said, I have been working in social media for the past 5+ years. I have been watching from the sidelines all the fun events that pro-bloggers have had over the years. One of those yearly events is Brandcation put together by MomDot. This year is being hosted in my backyard so I *have* to join in for the fun. If you have a blog and want to join us, please consider it. We would love to have you!
