Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is the best time of day for kid friendly activites?

The best time of the day for kid friendly activities would be either in the morning or evening, depending on the activity you have chose for your family. Mornings provide opportunities to explore the beach and local attractions with smaller crowds, and get your fun for the day done before lunch! Activities like destin fl fishing charters take place early morning, bringing you back by mid day. While other activities like a dolphin cruise or sunset sail take place around after dinner when the temperatures cooler and waterways are less congested.

2. My kid want to see dolphins, which would be the best way to go by boat or jet ski?

If you want a close up connection with the dolphins without touching them, go with the jet ski dolphin tours. But make sure you read the restrictions. Some rental companies require the child to be a certain age to ride on the jet ski with you. Another great way to see dolphins up-close is on a dolphin encounter at the Gulfarium. You can browse all of Gulfarium's dolphin swim tours here.

3. If i do a snorkeling trip am i able to observe while my kid does the snorkeling?

There does have to be an adult supervising while he or she is in the water during your snorkeling tour. If you have more than one adult going in your party you are more than welcome to stay on the boat. Although most companies do charge for snorkeling either way.

4. What is the most kid friendly thing to do in destin?

The most kid friendly and popular activity we offer is a dolphin cruise. They allow infants, depending on which partner you choose. So it's fun for the whole family and no one is left out! The departure point is typically the Destin Harbor, which offers lots of fun activities, shopping, dining, and sightseeing, and availability is very high year-round, so you can typically snag last-minute tickets. On most dolphin cruises, you're able to bring your own food and drinks, camera for photos, and there are playful elements like guided narration, music, and of course wildlife and dolphins! These tours are also some of the more affordable boat trips available in Destin, with bathrooms on-board many of the vessels.
