Power Up Watersports offers an array of water-based tours and adventures for everyone. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing time watching the scenery or an adrenaline-pumping experience on a watercraft, there’s all sorts fo things to do with this outfit.
The more relaxing excursions that Power Up Watersports offers include Fireworks Sunset Cruises, Wave Runner Dolphin Tours and Crab Island Excursions, which can be as relaxing or adventurous as you like once you’re at the island. Crab Island, of course, is an area favorite where you can swim, go through obstacle courses, enjoy a meal or beverage, and (naturally) see crab on the sandbar.
For a more exciting time on the boat itself, opt for either a Hydroflight experience or Banana Boat tow. The former will have you literally flying above the water, while the latter will get you squealing as you’re towed behind the jet boat. In either case, you’re almost certainly to get wet as you have a great time.
If you prefer to be your own captain, the outfit also rents both jew skis and pontoon boats. Jet skis cost between $50 and $70 per hour and are rented by the hour. Boats are rented by the half or full day, and they run between $185 and $325. Combo packages are available for a slight discount. A boater’s safety test that takes about 30 minutes is required for anyone born in 1988 or after.
The other activities that are offered cost anywhere from around $25 per person to over $100 per person, depending on which activity is chosen.
For a great time on the water, Power Up Watersports has all the gear and expert staff that you need. Select whichever activity your group would like to do, and everyone’s sure to have a smile by the end of the day.
A few of our favorite activities at Power Up Watersports include:
Fireworks Sunset Cruise
Make it a memorable evening with the private Fireworks Sunset Cruise. You’ll be guided around to the best viewing areas by one of the experienced staff, while you (and your beloved perhaps) sit on your own jet ski. Watch the evening sky as you ride around, but also keep an eye on the water in case you spot any dolphins nearby.
Crab Island Excursion
Book the Crab Island Excursion, and find out for yourself why the sandbar island is such a popular day trip destination. The jet boat will get you out to the island quickly (before the crowds start to arrive), and you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the sand, water and sun. Just be sure to bring your wallet so that you can partake in all that there is to do.
Banana Boat Ride
One of the most affordable activities and also one of the most fun, the Banana Boat Ride will have your group zipping along the water on, well, a giant banana. The inflatable is towed behind one of the jet boats, and the excitement of the ride can be tailored to the group’s preferences. The cost is only $25 per person, so the whole group can go without spending a fortune.
Jet Ski Rental
If you’re an experienced jet ski owner or user, the jet ski rentals are one of the best ways to explore Destin by water. Book a jet ski or two for the day, and see where the waves take you.
– If you’re at Crab Island, you should be aware that some parts of the water have swift currents that can take you away from your boat while swimming. The outfit has lifejackets and jet skis in case you get into trouble, and there are lots of boaters around. You should be especially aware of this if you bring a rented pontoon boat or jet ski to the island, though.
