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 were given a recommendation to go for a cruise and it was outstanding. Lasted about an hour and really got to see some beautiful views for a very cheap price. My kid enjoyed it so much that she even behaved lol.

We were told about this service by a local and decided to give it a try. From our condo to our restaurant/attraction of choice by way of harbor waterway. No parking hassles and door to door service. Best value in Destin.

There is a road that runs behind Destin Pointe if you exit out to the left and it curls around all the way to Norriego Pointe beach. That's where the pickup is for the water taxi. It's about 0.6 maybe 0.7 miles to the end... More
