Destin Harbor Boardwalk
This booming boardwalk boasts a barrage of shopping, dining, and recreation opportunities that we feel guests of any age will love. Start your journey by getting a first-hand look at the World's Luckiest Fishing Village's charter fishing fleet, with plenty of options for renting boats and fishing gear all around the boardwalk. You can rent a pontoon boat, take a sailing charter, enjoy a pirate ship excursion, board a dolphin cruise, enjoy the thrill of a jet boat, take a tour in a glass-bottom boat, and so much more! If you want more of a recreational thrill then consider paddleboarding, kayaking, jet-skiing, renting a Waverunner, parasailing, or snorkeling!
HarborWalk Adventures at HarborWalk Village is 'your one-stop shop for an adrenaline rush'. This interactive environment was first established in 2013 and is the perfect activity for thrill-junkies of all ages. Take a zip on the 1000 foot dual zipline and enjoy a side by side adventure featuring unbeatable views of the Gulf and sunset. Next take a crack at the 40' LED Rockwall, the world's first rock wall with LED handholds. End your adventure with a 100-foot free fall, the power fan free-fall ending with you softly landing on a bulls-eye with passerby's cheering you on!
Uncle Buck's Fish Bowl and Grill
This spacious, family-friendly entertainment and dining spot holds an underwater themed bar and 16-lane bowling alley within it. The lanes are decorated with marine life like octopi, mermaids, stingrays, sea turtles and more, most of the art you see being hand-painted murals. The graphics mixed with the lighting of the bowling alley makes for a true one-of-a-kind entertainment experience! Food-wise, your group will love the options at Uncle Buck's, with choices such as Uncle Buck's Fish and Chips, Brisket Mac & Cheese, Islamorada Portofino, Cajun Fried Catfish, and, of course, burgers, fries, sandwiches, and salads.
Big Kahuna's Water & Adventure Park
This fun water and adventure park was first established here in Destin in 1986. It features over 40 attractions including play areas, thrill rides, high slides, and massive pools. There is also miniature golf onsite, as well as several eateries! Enjoy such fun attractions as the 5-story Jumanji, Maui Pipeline, Cobra Twister, Kowabunga Racer, and Tiki River Run. At the adventure park get a serious thrill with the Cyclone Twister or Sky Coaster. Younger children will love the Kids Buccaneer Cove and Pleasure Island. Once you work up an appetite head to the Gulf View Food Court, Bomb's Away Cafe, or The Cove for something tasty to eat!
Southern Star Dolphin Cruise
Each 2-hour cruise will allow guests to enjoy the emerald green waters and sugar-white sand beaches aboard the 80 foot, 149-person capacity vessel. Enjoy a narrated tour of the harbor, complete with area history, dolphin spotting and educating, and relaxing island music. You will experience close-up views of dolphins (Atlantic Coastal Bottlenose Dolphins), seabirds, and other marine life! The cruise will take you to the East Pass of the Gulf of Mexico or Marler Bridge, depending on the water conditions.
During your visit, your group is going to take the 3-hour, 2-Stop Snorkel Tour. During the tour, you will get to explore diverse ecosystems within the bay waters and man-made jetties. Your first stop will allow shallow water snorkeling for an hour or so in the bay, then you will board the boat again and head to the East Jetties on the beaches of Holiday Isle to anchor down. Here you can continue to snorkel here, or perhaps use one of the free kayaks to explore. You can also view dolphins and spend some time shelling here!
Henderson Beach State Park
At Henderson Beach State Park your group will be met by 30-foot white sand dunes and warm Emerald Gulf waters. Relax, fish, or hike while here, or simply spend your day swimming in the perfectly warm and crystal clear waters. The water temperature is 75 to 80 degrees on average and the unique emerald green color you see is due to the sunlight reflecting off of the white sand along the shore. Explore the wrack along the shore (sargassum seaweed), and spend some time birdwatching along one of the many nature trails for pelicans, skimmers, or terns. You will also see such wildlife as sand pines, scrub oaks, southern magnolias, dune rosemary, and a variety of local wildflowers.
