We signed 6 of our group up for parasailing and unfortunately the weather wasn't cooperating. Clay and his guys took our group out to try and get them up, but it didn't work out. They did get to see some dolphins and got a quick boat tour of the bay. When we got back they offered to try again at... More

This was the second time we used Dockside for parasailing and once again they didn't disappoint! Our family had a great time with the Dockside crew!! We had a couple of schedule changes and an early morning weather issue but Dockside was able to make sure we were able to get our trip in before heading home from vacation!

We rented a pontoon boat for a half day from Dockside for $300. It was a very nice, clean boat with plenty of room for the twelve in our group. The boat didn't have an audio system but the Bluetooth speaker dockside gave us to use worked just fine! We took the boat to crab island for the day and... More

We love going to Crab Island when we visit Destin but we were going to have the pontoon for 8 hours and wanted to see some other sites . My husband is knowledgeable about boats and navigation but the staff sat down with a map and showed us places to go . My recommendation is to do two 1/2 days... More

We had a group of 9 girls that decided to rent a pontoon boat and go to crab island for the day. So much fun! We also paid the captain to drive us! Drew was wonderful! He was very accommodating! He went above and beyond for us and we all appreciated it so much! It was one of the best... More

I highly recommend renting from Dockside Watersports!!! We are an amusing & enjoyable gaggle of girls who decided spontaneously to rent a pontoon boat for a birthday celebration. Being the responsible ladies we are, we decided to hire a captain to chauffeur us around and the crew at Dockside Watersports arranged this for us. Sweet Captain Drew was a blessing... More

We rented a pontoon for an evening cruise. The boat was nice, ran well and was clean. Staff was very helpful pointing us toward places we might see dolphins. There was a fireworks show in the harbor after dark and we had front row seats! I'll use their services again when I'm in Destin.

Our first trip to Destin and parasailing was awesome. The crew was young, yes but knowledgeable and very professional even when we had a bit of a snag. They fixed the problem and had us back up and running in no time. They were very personable which was very good with our normally moody teenagers. Cost was great, booking was... More

We are on vacation. We drove 2 hours to Destin to experience a wonderful 1st time experience in a pontoon boat in beautiful blue water. 20 minutes into the water and our boat breaks down 3 times!! We had to call and get someone out and sit in the water for an hour. Guy comes out and is pretty mad... More
