A trip to the Gulf Coast just isn’t complete without some fun adventures in the warm, scenic waters. Looking to up your family’s game from basic beaching and boogie boarding? Consider booking an activity with Wet-N-Wild Watersports in Destin. Their biggest draw is parasailing, but the company also features a range of other watersports options.
Be sure to communicate about your group’s needs, as well as confirm upcoming weather conditions when you book your trip. It may sound obvious, but Wet-N-Wild will need to reschedule some activities if the weather turns rough. Especially in cases of high wind.
Wet-N-Wild Watersports is a great option for beginner boaters and those looking to try out an exciting parasailing adventure. Children are welcome for all the activities offered, including parasailing! Not sure what to try? The full range of offerings from Wet-N-Wild Watersports includes:
Parasailing seemed like the biggest draw on our recent excursion, and it was certainly a memorable experience! The actual “flight time” in the air is only about 10 minutes or so. Though, the entire experience, including the boat ride out and back was closer to 45 minutes. The parasail equipment allows for people to go in small groups of two or three. Wet-N-Wild Watersports staff strives to provide a gentle takeoff and landing so it’s appropriate for both kids and adults.
Is the thought of riding high in the sky above the water not your cup of tea? Wet-N-Wild also offers chartered fishing trips. Including both inshore and offshore fishing trips from half-day to full-day trips. All license fees are included in the package, so there’s no need to secure a license before you leave home.
Want to be the captain of your own boat—literally? Boat rentals are available, including pontoons, inflatable boats, as well as jet skis. Both pontoon and jet ski rentals require a short boating safety class. It is available right on-site as part of the rental experience. If you’re staying somewhere with access to water, Wet-N-Wild also has delivery options available for all boat and watercraft rentals.
There’s nothing quite like the experience of gently floating in the calm waters of the Gulf, especially at sunset! We also tried out the Wet-N-Wild Watersports Sunset Cruise. We had a beautiful time taking in the last rays of the sun to the sights and sounds of dolphins and manta rays lightly breaking the surface of the golden-pink water. If you want to focus on marine life specifically, sign up for a Dolphin Cruise. The staff will guide you to areas most populated by these playful and intelligent sea mammals. For more of a celebratory experience, try the Crab Island Cruise. This experience brings boaters out to the massive sandbar of Crab Island. In which offers an inflatable waterpark for kids and plenty of revelries for the grownups.
Wet-N-Wild Watersports is truly a choose-your-own-adventure experience for families, couples, or groups of friends looking to bring a bit of action into their Destin vacation. No matter which option you choose, you’ll enjoy the up close and personal approach to the Emerald Coast. Additionally, work up an appetite for all the dining options that Destin has to offer. Happy sailing!
Wet-N-Wild Watersports offers a reasonably priced photo package, but you are also permitted to bring your own camera when you go parasailing. Whichever option you choose, be sure to get some shots of this incredible vantage point of the Gulf Coast. Bring a selfie stick and a waterproof case for your camera to get a great shot that won’t ruin your equipment!
