Description:

The Destin Water Taxi offers a fun convenient transportation alternative...

The Destin Water Taxi offers a fun convenient transportation alternative for Holiday Isle, Norriego Point, HarborWalk Village, and all your favorite Harbor view restaurants and bars. Our point to point transportation is a unique entertaining experience where you get to see all the sights our beautiful harbor has to offer from the water!

          Call for a pick up anywhere on the harbor & look for the Destin Water Taxi Logo, our boats are Blue&Yellow & say TAXI on the side!

          We also offer Harbor Cruises (1 hr.) where we cruise back into all the canals viewing the Huge beautiful homes on the water, spotting dolphins, sea turtles, and other wildlife along the way. Check out our firework cruises, harbor history cruises, or just bring a few friends and cocktails and enjoy being on the water. Schedule ahead for large groups, skip the limo and jump on the water taxi with your bachelor / bachelorette party, wedding party, or birthday party. Arrive safely & in style at any of the Bars/Restaurants on the harbor. We are operating till 2am on Friday & Saturday nights during the summer so rest assured you will not have to worry about getting home safely after your night out of fun!

          All of our captains are Professional Certified Master Captains regulated by the coast guard so your safety is our number one concern along with having a great time!

Call the morning you want to use it but it is very easy and keeps you our of the crazy destin traffic and parking. $10 per person round trip. When you're ready to head home give them about 30 minutes to come pick you up.

The water taxi was only five dollars a person and you could bring your drinks aboard. It was a nice relaxing ride and the drivers really knew there way around. It was so much fun and we met new people each time were road which was often, just wished they stayed open later than 11.

Destin is my favorite place to chill. The most beautiful beaches and the BEST seafood on earth. Now there is THE most relaxing thing to do. Step to the dock in Destin Harbor and step onto a Destin WaterTaxi. Gliding around Destin Harbor, cool breeze blowing, cocktail in hand, NOTHING washes away the stress better. Thank you Captain Jimmy Crawford...Ahhhhhhhhh.....

Also a great option for those visiting the Harbor area who just want to cruise around the harbor and enjoy the cool breezes and scenery, so peaceful and relaxing! A sunset cruise is awesome!
