Dolphin Tours

Our local waters are home to a thriving population of Atlantic bottlenose dolphins, which can be seen swimming and playing in the emerald-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

These intelligent and social marine mammals are a popular attraction for tourists and locals alike. The dolphins are known for their acrobatic displays, including jumps and flips, and their playful behavior, such as riding the wake of boats.

While it is important to remember that these are wild animals and should be treated with respect, a glimpse of these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat is an unforgettable experience for anyone visiting the Emerald Coast.

Crab Island

Crab Island in Destin, Florida is a popular destination for visitors looking to enjoy a unique experience in the Gulf of Mexico. It is not actually an island but rather a shallow sandbar located in the middle of the bay.

Crab Island is known for its crystal-clear, emerald green waters and its lively atmosphere. There are floating restaurants and bars, music, and plenty of water activities such as paddle boarding, kayaking, and even water trampolines. Visitors can also find local vendors offering souvenirs and snacks.

Crab Island is an excellent place to enjoy the beautiful scenery and socialize with friends and family. It is a unique experience that has become a must-do for many visitors to the Destin area.

Secluded Island Getaway

The Santa Rosa Sound in Fort Walton, Florida is home to a number of small islands that provide a unique and beautiful backdrop for locals and tourists alike.

Accessible only by boat, these islands offer a range of activities including swimming, boating, fishing, and picnicking.

The turquoise waters surrounding the islands are a popular spot for snorkeling and diving, and visitors can often spot a variety of marine life such as dolphins and sea turtles.

With their natural beauty and abundance of recreational opportunities, the small islands in the Santa Rosa Sound are a true gem of the Florida panhandle.
