The fishing fleet goes out twice a day and when they return, you get to walk out on the pier and watch them unload what was caught. Then watch them clean them. Masters with knives that can clean a 20 lb grouper in one minute flat. Also many good restaurants and bars. Try Brotula's. It is great with a great... More

Being at the Destin Harbor immediately takes me back to what I think it would be like when it first originated. The boats, the people, the laid back atmosphere, the smells... just everything. Being on Destin Harbour makes me want to move to Destin.. Love it here.

The Destin Harbor hotel is beautifully located. Not my number one choice location to stay, as it is an older hotel, but budget friendly and great location.

We got here just before sunset. Free parking at back of Coyote Ugly Saloon. Walk down the ramp or stairs to the boardwalk and check out the boats. Got some gorgeous photos of the sunset with sailboats in the foreground.

My wife and I went there for an evening. There are plenty of shops, a few restaurants and quite a few boat tours of all kinds. Great place to spent an evening. Just so happened they had fireworks the evening we were there

There is something to do at the Destin Harbor for just about everyone. If you happen to come in October, check out the fishing rodeo. Boats come in from 5-7pm with their catch to see if they snag a position in the contest. IT is fun to watch and you can grab a drink or bite to eat at AJ's.... More

Booked a fishing party boat and jet skis at the harbor. This is a must on the list when visiting Destin. Found our souvenirs here and there are several dining and bar options.

We enjoy watching the fishing boats come in, usually between five and seven PM for the fish weigh-in behing AJ's. The fishing rodeo is in October. After watching the catch, we head to dinner at one of the many restaurant options.

Destin in my absolute favorite vacation spot. The harbor was beautiful. We took a walk early Sunday morning and saw dolphins swimming in the distance. So peaceful.
