Top 10 Things To Do on The Water in Destin Florida

Top 10 Things To Do on The Water in Destin Florida

1. Crab Island

Crab Island is a once and a lifetime kind of place! This is why doing it right is definitely worth the splurge. Instead of getting packed in like sardines on a shuttle boat, charter a private boat with a captain! Crab Island Adventures is the way to go! They have luxury pontoon boats to fit any party with floats, coolers filled with ice, Bluetooth radio, and slides ready for your enjoyment!

2. Wake Surfing 

Destin has a brand new wake surfing boat that is making waves in the bay!

3. Paddle Board to Artificial Reefs

You can find several artificial reefs off of our sugar‑white beaches from Destin to Panama City. Rent a paddleboard, grab some snorkel gear, and paddle out to explore the abundant sea life the panhandle has to offer!

4. Catamaran Dolphin Cruise

Wanting to kick back and relax while you look for dolphins? Captain Pam is your girl! Layout on the nets of the catamaran while you cruise around taking in the sights!

5. Parasailing

Parasailing is an adrenaline rush and a unique way to enjoy the views of the Gulf of Mexico! Make sure you request to parasail in the gulf instead of the bay, and don't forget to ask for a dip before coming back to the boat (the dip is the best part!)

6. Jet Skiing

Do you have a need for speed? Jet skiing is the way to go! Just make sure you keep an eye out for the bigger boats going by!

7. Fishing in The Gulf of Mexico

There is a reason they call Destin The Luckiest Fishing Village! There truly isn't a better feeling than reeling in your dinner for the night! Make sure you give Captain Lionel a call; he will have you reeling them in all day long!

8. Sunset Tiki Cruise

Looking for a romantic night on the water? Take an unforgettable cruise on a tiki boat!

9. Seaplane
