Destin Little Adventures Offer Customized Experiences For Families

Destin has created customizable adventure packages that filter by age, price, location or duration, providing Bite-sized little adventures for the whole family. With more than 20 miles of coastline, plus protected bays and bayous, the best way to explore Destin, Florida is on the water. Coined the “world’s luckiest fishing village,” Destin is popular with anglers, but it also ranks high for watersports and nature activities as well.

The tourism department for Destin-Fort Walton Beach wants to make accessing the area’s waterways easier than ever. The bite-size experiences pair water activities including fishing charters, pontoon boat rentals, and kayak and paddleboard tours with local restaurants and land activities. For example, guests can experience a day on the water with the “Dolphin Sail and Sandwich pack” which includes a 3-hour private sail with Captain Pam and fresh-made sandwiches from the local market. Or try Captain Brandy’s Catch & Cook to experience the joys of fishing along the Emerald Coast of Florida with a 4-hour fishing trip with Captain Brandy and East Pass Seafood & Oyster will prepare your fresh catch when you get back to the dock.

Guests can also plan their own adventures on our local waterways with Island Watersports Company, Destin Snorkel, or opt instead for a cruise on the Cattywampus Catamaran that boards from The Gulf on Okaloosa Island. Be sure to check our Be Rewarded program before booking adventures as each Newman-Dailey vacation rental includes one free adult pass per day on a variety of dolphin cruises, parasailing and Big Kahuna's Waterpark. You'll find that Destin provides a comfortable setting to try new things and encourages kids to not only interact with their surroundings but also with each other.

For an up-close encounter with some of Destin’s most famous residents, seasonal Nighttime Educational Beach Walks (June through October) provide locals and visitors alike with information about protecting the sea turtle population. Or head on your own with your turtle-safe flashlight to search for crabs and critters and possibly a glimpse of a mother sea turtle heading to the dunes to lay her eggs. (TIP: you can pick up a free red filtered flashlight during the turtle nesting season at the following locations: Destin City Hall, Destin Chamber of Commerce, Destin History & Fishing Museum, Emerald Coast Science Center, Henderson Beach State Park, Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park and Desitn-Fort Walton Beach Welcome Center.)
