We actually fished in the Destin Harbor because the weather kept us from venturing past. Beautiful area - lots of restaurants and cool boats to see.

This is the place to go if you are looking for a chartered boat, or if you just want to go to look and gawk at the culture. We loved just watching the ships come in with fish. There are restaurants, shopping, and fun things for the kids to do. Highly recommended.

Took the water taxi from our condo to shop and enjoy the views. It is upscale shopping and the best views in Destin, especially at sunset. Plan a trip to this area. You will not be disappointed!

We spent a lot of time at the harbor with the children. We even saw a mako shark and the crew was kind enough to let the kids touch it and take pictures. The harbor is clean and parking is free.

There is a lot to see on the Harbor. We had fun doing the zip line! We found some standup/cut outs for photos. There was a bungee jump, a free fall and a rock climb wall too. Lots of places to eat too (including a Starbucks). We spent three hours down there following our Pirate Cruise. Definitely something to see... More

We enjoyed visiting the Destin Harbor over our spring break vacation. It was fun to walk down by the boats as they were coming in (around 4) to see their catch of the day. Lots of restaurants and shopping too. We were even lucky to see a few dolphins!

If you really want to take Destin FL into your person, come here. Sniff the air. Watch the water. Drink the drinks. Feel the vibes.

You can rent Personal WaterCraft (i.e. "Jet Skis") or pontoon boats to enjoy the Destin Harbor, the adjacent Gulf of Mexico and the adjacent Choctawhatchee Bay (think giant lake attached to the Gulf of Mexico and Destin Harbor) where you can enjoy waterspouts of all types. You can also rent a para-sailing ride on the back of one of those... More

Destin Harbor is just one of those places where you can go and see something different every single time you visit. This is a very real, working harbor. We love to watch the fishing boats return with their catches. Some very proud visitors with some pretty big fish! We love the restaurants too. It's all about the water here. Something... More
