Very nice to walk the boardwalk, see the fishing boats come in and enjoy the views. Many restaurants and shops and activities for young and old.

From shops to Dolphin excursions, from zip lines to live bands. The Destin Harbor has a lot to choose from. We have been several times now and enjoy it every time. Each time we find something new to do or eat or drink. Every employee...More

Very crowded but lots of fun. Good music and great oysters. Bartender made good margaritas. Would recommend the Boathouse to all ages (except children).

The closest major airport would be VPS. Valparaiso-Fort Walton Beach. Destin has a private airport right now.

The marina is on the west end of the island before the bridge. We were there for Destin Snorkel and it was great. The Captain knew where the Dolphins were and they were magical. Parasailing, boating, a bounce house in the... More

Hi Nursdeb, My best recommendation would be to browse the docks and ask anyone who may be working there or check with some realtors. Some private docks may be open, but without knowing who to contact, that may be a bit... More
