What is the water like in Fort Morgan?

Considering coming down in the fall but can't find much info on the water. Is it emerald like the Destin area or cloudy due to the Bay? Thanks much!

It all depends on the weather, in the fall there can be tropical systems in the gulf that can stir up the sediment on the bottom and make for cloudy water, We have been there where the water at shoulder depth is clear all the way to your feet.

Most of the bay water heads west when it reaches the gulf, due to the currents. Right now the bay is pretty clear due to no rain coming down the rivers. I think you will like the Fort Morgan area. That section is mainly homes and not anything to do unless you drive to Gulf Shores. There is not many places that have water as clear as Destin, but the condo prices should be alittle cheaper here

Hey, thanks so much for your help. Looks like a very cool place. We have it narrowed down to two areas and I'm digging Fort Morgan more than Destin right now.

We're in Fort Morgan right now. Destin's water is MUCH prettier! Wish we would have paid the extra couple hundred dollars for the week and stayed in Destin. If the beauty of the water is important to you, go to DESTIN!

THe water in fort morgan and gulf shores can be clear as destin..

If the seas are rough, then the water will be murkier, no matter where you are..

Waves creates less clear water, no matter where you are
