Dolphin and Sunset Cruise
There’s more to Destin Snorkel than just snorkeling! If you’d like to experience the beauty of Destin up close but don’t feel like diving in, this cruise is for you. During this exclusive harbor tour, you’ll see several points of interest, followed by a search for dolphins in the bay and finally, a breathtaking sunset. Destin Snorkel also offers an evening fireworks cruise during Harborwalk Village’s weekly fireworks display.
Shelling and Dolphin Cruise
Although open to all guests, this two-hour tour is primarily designed for families with small children. Take the boat into the bay, where you and your loved ones can hop off and hunt for shells in the shallow water. Afterwards, you’ll board the boat again and take off for the area’s best dolphin viewing locations.
Two-Stop Snorkeling Tour
Easily Destin Snorkel’s most popular activity, this tour grants you three hours of excitement — and we’re not just talking snorkeling. You’ll begin in the shallowest areas much as you would for the previously described shelling tour. This is your time to get comfortable and check out the seahorses and crabs. After you’ve explored the shallow waters by the coast, you’ll move on to the famed Destin Jetties, which are ideal for snorkeling. During this portion of the tour, you’re also welcome to use Destin Snorkel’s single and double kayaks, free of charge. In addition to the tour’s two main stops, you’ll have the opportunity to search for dolphins.
All of Destin Snorkel’s water-based activities are worth trying. No matter your comfort factor or desire for adventure, you can make the most of the Emerald Coast’s natural beauty.
- While Destin Snorkel offers complimentary water and soda, you’re also welcome to bring a cooler for alcoholic beverages. Glass containers, however, are not allowed.
