Some fun things to do in Destin Florida

Dolphin Adventure

Destin Excursions will start your excursion in the intercostal waterway in Fort Walton Beach navigate the Choctawhatchee Bay towards Destin and then head out towards the Destin East Pass. We see dolphins in the intercostal waterway on a regular basis so we will have several opportunities to see dolphins on the way to and from Destin.

Sunrise Tours

Start your day by watching the sunrise cruiseing while you kick back and relax. It's fun for everyone of all ages. The great part about having a private charter is that you can customize the trip to your needs.

Kids playing

Gulf Island National Sea Shore

People of all ages enjoy playing in the water at the Gulf Island National Sea Shore. It is a shallow water sand bar 2 to 3 feet of water in most areas where you can get out of the boat, snorkel, swim or walk around and look for shells. There is also an ice cream boat that is easily reached on the vhf radio.

If you are staying in or on the Destin Harbor or Okaloosa Island bay side / intercoastal waterway and have dock access, Destin Excursions can pick you up and drop you off at no additional charge (some restrictions may apply if your dock is outside of this area). For an additional charge we can pick you up at different locations in Choctawhatchee Bay area. 


These are all private charters and are customized for whatever your group wants to do or wherever you want to go. Some choose to cruise the beautiful waters of the Choctawhatchee Bay, while others prefer the adventure of the open sea.


Destin Excursions can take guests cruising as far as five miles out into the gulf. The boat is well-equipped with a t-top to get out of the sun if need be. Several bean bag chairs. The boat also has a fresh water wash down. 

It is a private charter, it's only your party on the boat. However this does not mean that we will not be around other boats during the excursion. If you don't want to be around other boats or other people, please specify that to the captain when booking your cruise.
