Boasting the closest deepwater access in the northern gulf, Destin lays claim to the title ‘The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village’ and has the largest and most elaborately equipped fishing fleet in the state of Florida. The most popular boating destination in Destin, Crab Island is not actually an island but an underwater sandbar and popular gathering place for locals and tourists alike. Feel the wind in your hair as you cruise the waterways or rent a tube and take the kids tubing for hours of fun and laughter.
Pull up at Crab Island and let the kids slide down the giant inflatable floating slide into the water. Too much sun can be harmful, but a little bit of sun can put some color in your cheeks and give you a little Vitamin D to boost your spirits.


Swimming, kayaking, treading water, paddleboarding, tubing, skiing, wakeboarding, fishing, and more. A National Marine Manufacturers Association survey of over 1,000 American households listed boating in the top-three of all stress-relieving activities.
Did you know Boating Magazine named Destin at the top of the list in their Top 10 Places to Live and Boat? Last, but certainly not least, one of the top reasons for renting a boat in Destin is simply because it’s so much fun.
As a Destin area native, mom to 3 boys, and all-around adventure lover, I love to share my passion for my hometown with others.
Rent a boat or jet ski from one of several Destin Harbor locations, or we can arrange delivery to your resort, vacation rental, or hotel marina.
If you’re looking for night time attractions, sail off into the sunset on one of our sunset cruises or fireworks tours aboard one of several tour boats. Be sure to check out our Destin fishing report to see what’s biting this time of year in the “World’s Luckiest Fishing Village,” and our calendar of tournaments and events to see what’s happening along the Emerald Coast!
All boats are equipped with a bimini top that can be opened for shade, an anchor, all USCG certified life jackets, room for coolers, and the cleanest seating!
If you are looking to get out on the water, chance are you will spot at least a few different species that you wouldn’t see further inland. Bottlenose Dolphins- bottlenose dolphins have inhabited Destin’s tropical waters since long before Destin Vacation Boat Rentals came around, but we’ve only recently begun to offer a trip dedicated to viewing these playful creatures in the wild.
Sea Turtles- If you look very closely, sometimes you can spot a sea turtle swimming along on top of the water or just below the surface.
Manatee-manatee, also known as sea cows, are typically only seen farther south, but in the past few years they have been spotted more and more along the Emerald Coast. Seabirds-Pelicans and seagulls are the most popular seabirds that you can see on your visit to Destin.
Where fishermen in most coastal towns must travel 30+ miles offshore to catch fish, Destin fishermen can catch a variety of species within just a few miles of the beach. Look for shells, hermit crabs, and other sealife or just enjoy the peace and tranquility of the natural outdoors. Renting a boat gets you out in nature and allows you to “unplug” and enjoy your friends and family.
Explore waterways, canals, islands, sandbars, and undeveloped shores that you couldn’t see on land.


There are so many activities to explore when it comes to boating, we’re sure you’ll find the perfect combination of reasons to make you glad you gave it a try!

The adventures are never ending when you are your own captain- your family can park on a beach and snorkel, anchor at Crab Island to swim and relax all day, cruise around the bay while Dolphin watching, take it out during our one-of-a-kind sunset or cap your Thursday night off by being right underneath the T-6 Destin Warbirds airshow followed by Fireworks (call for more information)!
The next time you’re in town, hop on board our  32? power catamaran for Fury’s brand new Dolphin Tour & Seashell Adventure. On some occasions, I have seen them in the Destin Harbor, the Santa Rosa Sound, and around the Destin jetties, but most often they can be seen out in the gulf when you’re heading out for a fishing charter. You can sometimes spot them swimming along the coast while you’re on a boat or paddleboard, as seen in this video. You’ll see them walking along the docks waiting for the fish to come in, resting on pilings in the water, and wading in the shallows in search of their next meals.
From fresh seafood to boiled peanuts, the food choices on the water make boating in Destin a unique experience!
There are plenty of activities you can try in Destin that are sure to be a great learning experience!
Reserve your Destin, Florida boat rental today, and get ready to experience some of the most beautiful waters in the world!
If fishing is more of what you are looking for, check out our Destin fishing boat rentals page. It’s a completely different experience from the classic boat rental experience. Captain Rex is often at the helm aboard the Cattywampus and he has years of experience in finding the perfect place to view these graceful beauties in their natural habitat. These mammals are social creatures and swim together in pods, so chances are once you see one, you’re going to spot a whole lot more!
These creatures, to me, are evn more majestic than the popular dolphin because you see them much less frequently. I know every time I see a dolphin–no matter what boat I’m on–I get a little rush of excitement and jump to my feet. They are such majestic creatures and it’s an experience you just have to have for yourself!
