We are 5-7 minutes from Crab Island by pontoon boat. One mile east of the Destin bridge on HWY 98 and 3.5 miles West of Walmart. Our location is unique-it's just one of a few places on the Harbor with the tall live oaks still standing. All different species of birds come here for peace and quiet. Our customers and safety come first. We will do everything we can to make your excursion on the water the very best. You will be parking approx.25' from the dock. So bring your coolers, shades, lots of suntan lotion and a great attitude. Your family and friends are going to have a very enjoyable and memorable day. Have a very nice day. Take Care!

Our group rented a pontoon boat from Blue Heron last week & had a terrific time. The instruction from Tim, who met us at our car, loaded our belongings onto the boat, thoroughly showed us how to operate it & even gave recommendations on places to go after was tremendous. The equipment was relatively new, worked great & was simple... More

The highlight of our trip, hands down. The owner made reservations easy, helped us load the boat, and gave us an idea of where to go and what to do. From there we were off, 4 adults and 5 kids (15,9,9,6,4). We had so much fun exploring the bay, swimming, eating, and hunting hermit crabs. 4 hours weren't enough so... More

This is the best place to rent boats in Destin FL. The owners, Tim and Wendy were extremely nice, they even offered me a coupon (I didn't ask for one) to make my experience a little cheaper. Tim told us were to go, and we were able to see 6 Dolpins swimming in the bay. My 8 yr old boy... More

I recently took my family to Destin on vacation and found Blue Heron down in the harbor. We had already taken my son scuba diving so the typical snorkeling/snuba excursions were not really for us (plus the expense didn't seem worth it). We just wanted something we could all enjoy. Tim and Wendy at Blue Heron were great. So enjoyable... More

Recently rented a pontoon boat from Blue Heron and would recommend this rental service to anyone. They are very professional, accommodating and really go out of their way to help their customers. The boats are new and in great shape. I would certainly choose this rental place over the other options available on the Destin boardwalk.

Five SnowBird couples take a 3 hour tour of Destin Harbor and the surrounding area on a 25ft Pontoon from Blue Heron Watersports which was a delightful experience from the "get go". The Owner answered the phone to make the arrangements and welcomed us as e got out of the car. The boat was clean, fully fueled and ready to... More

We rent boats 4-5 times a year in Destin and Blue Heron is the nicest, clean, and friendliest place we have found. The equipment is new and the staff is outstanding.

Had a great day renting from this company. Nice Boat, nice workers! Knowledgable, but at the same time ran through it quickly if you already knew how to operate a boat, so we liked that. Fun to take the boat out to crab island if you have kids of all ages !

We rented the boat just after Labor Day and had a wonderful time. The boat was super clean and new. We also rented a paddle board and it really added to our fun! There was plenty of room for all of us, 5 adults and 2 teens, with ample shaded and sunny areas. It was a very relaxing day and... More
