Maybe you’ve heard about the sugar white sand beaches and crystal-clear waters off Destin, Florida. But did you know that the Destin Harbor and a boat cruise along the popular Destin Harbor Boardwalk just might be the perfect activity for the entire family?

Destin Boardwalk

Welcome to Destin Boardwalk, home to AJ’s Seafood & Oyster Bar and AJ’s Water Adventures dolphin tours docked just behind. Their two 80-passenger cruise boats offer sunset boat rides, daytime dolphin tours, snorkeling tours and even fireworks cruises. But, before you head past Destin Jetties and out Destin Pass into the Gulf of Mexico, one of the best parts of the tour is the relaxing cruise around Destin Harbor.

Seascape Serenity

Boarding the 80-passenger dolphin boat is safe, stable and easy for the entire family young and old. There are restrooms on board and complimentary beer and wine (limit 2 per adult), and soft drinks. The Destin Habor tour will last about 30 to 45 minutes passing by the Emerald Grande, world-famous Margaritaville and Norriega Point Beach.

Harbor Highlights

The Destin Harbor Boardwalk is a vibrant promenade along Florida’s Emerald Coast but an even better way to see it is from the water! Your captain will provide local tips pointing out restaurants including Boshamps Seafood, great places for pontoon boat and jet ski rentals, parasail rides, and even the locations of waterfront homes owned by celebrities including Luke Bryan and Tom Cruise.

Dolphin Delight

After about 30 minutes, your tour will head into the Gulf of Mexico to go fast and watch dolphin jump and play in the wake. What a great way to start your Destin vacation by touring Destin Harbor, seeing dolphin jump right beside your boat, and learning the best places to go on your trip from your captain on board.
