Come snorkel the beautiful emerald green waters of Destin with a reliable, well-established tour company, Pelican...
Great trip! Brought our 4 yr old out for her first time snorkeling. We chose to do the 2 stop trip because we wanted some variety and it did not disappoint! My first suggestion is to plan ahead for traffic bc Destin traffic is second suggestion is to go in the morning because the water clarity is much better than the afternoon. We actually went back in the afternoon to the same spots two days in a row on our own and it just wasn't as clear due to all the boat traffic and stuff. Anyways, Capt Georgina and her crew guys Ayden and Waylon were really nice. The snorkel gear is all included and they do show you how to use it. They also have nets, noodles and life jackets of all sizes. The first stop for the snorkel was near the jetties. This was a pretty busy spot as it's very popular to hang out there. That's where we saw Dory swimming around the jetty rocks. It was cool. The second stop was over in the grass beds by Crab Island. Our whole boat found some amazing shells and had a great time! It's VERY family friendly and reasonably priced for the area. Our daughter loved it!
Had a wonderful crew- very helpful! Super knowledgeable about all the shells our kiddos picked up too! My kids have never found so many whole huge seashells before! Thanks for a great experience!
Amazing adventure. Great staff. Perfect excursion.

We Had a Blast on This Snorkling Adventure

How did you discover this activity?

We searched for fun things to do in Destin and found this tour.

When did you book your tour compared to the departure date?

We booked the tour about 3 weeks in advance.

Why did you choose this activity?

We had never been snorkeling before so we wanted something that would be a good introduction to snorkeling and was not too intense.

How did you get to the activity location?

We stayed in Miramar Beach so it was a short drive to get to the trip.

What was your experience with the activity's staff?

All three staff members were so helpful and patient with us beginners. They were funny, entertaining, and very knowledgeable.

Highlights or memories you and your group will take from the trip?

We were all new at snorkeling so we were a little nervous, but we ended up having a blast. At the first stop we were able to feed the fish some frozen peas and they were so beautiful. The water was so clear and pretty. At the second stop we were able to see fish, snails, and hermit crabs. We also collected a few shells.

Would you recommend this activity to another group like yours? Why or why not?

I highly recommend this trip to any family. Although my family did not have any children, there were children on the tour and they had a great time. The kids would love to feed the fish and see the hermit crabs.

The water is shallow in both locations so it is safe for anyone who is not a strong swimmer. Again, the crew is very helpful and knowledgeable so they can help you have a fun and safe trip!
