With its gorgeous white sand beaches, spectacular wildlife, and crystal clear water, Destin, Florida is one of the most naturally beautiful places in the United States! If you would like an up-close look at Destin’s magnificent scenery, consider taking a guided tour of the city’s iconic landmarks or waterways. To help you make the most of your next vacation, the Henderson Park Inn has put together a guide to the top five tours in Destin FL.
1. Sea Blaster Dolphin Tour
The Sea Blaster Dolphin Tour is the very best way to see Destin’s most beloved animals! Guests will board a 73-foot passenger speedboat and head out into the Gulf of Mexico to spy some of the 40,000 dolphins that call the area home. Along the way, passengers can enjoy complimentary soda, beer, or wine and insider information about the Emerald Coast from Captain Larry, who has been piloting the Sea Blaster since 1995. When you stay at the Henderson Park Inn, you’ll receive one free adult admission for the Sea Blaster Dolphin Tour per paid night stay.
2. Destination Segway Tour
The Destination Segway Tour takes visitors to all of Destin’s top tourist spots. Popular stops along the tour include the HarborWalk Village, Destin’s original settlement site, Clement Taylor Park, and the Destin History and Fishing Museum. Don’t worry if you’ve never ridden a Segway before; your tour guide will teach you everything you need to know to glide around town like a pro.
3. Just Chute Me Parasail Tour
When you take one of Just Chute Me’s parasail tours in Destin FL, you’ll see the Emerald Coast from a whole new vantage point! Floating 400 feet in the air, parasailers will enjoy breathtaking vistas of the Gulf of Mexico, Harborwalk Village, Destin’s East Pass, and Crab Island. Parasailing is perfect for a date with your sweetheart because couples can hold hands as they take in the views from high in the sky.
4. Sail Away Tour
For an unforgettable tour of Choctawhatchee Bay or the Gulf of Mexico, we highly recommend chartering your own catamaran with Sail Away. Passengers can choose from a variety of fun sailboat tours, including snorkeling adventures, trips to Crab Island, or sunset sails. Captain Bryan Klein always shows his visitors a good time, and you can even help sail the boat if you’re so inclined!
5. Mobile Sport’s Banana Boat Tour
If you’ve never taken a banana boat ride before, a tour with Mobile Sports is definitely in order! Participants sit on large, yellow inflated tubes that are pulled by a ski boat around Destin Harbor.
