Memorial day weekend is a great time to visit the beach and get some snorkeling in. Reefs of the same design as those planned for Navarre are already deployed off Pensacola Beach. This YouTube video provides a view of what the Navarre reefs will look like when deployed.

They are located approximately 1.5 miles east of Portofino Towers on Pensacola beach. The GPS coordinates for the closest parking lot is N30.348000, W87.053787. The reefs are just to the east of the parking log. There is a cut in the dunes near the entrance, and you can unload your gear there , then park in the lot. The reef is marked with a bouy. There are two poles on the beach which you can use to line yourself up for direction. The first structure is between the first and second sand bar.
Here is where you find information and discussion about the proposed Navarre Beach Snorkeling & Diving Reef.
