What we chose to do
We googled fun things to do in Destin and this came up.
We booked it a few days before our trip to Destin.
I wanted to find fun things for my two-year-old child. We also read that you could see dolphins, sea lions, and gators.
We wanted to visit different beaches along the Panhandle. On our way to Ft Walton Beach our plan was to visit the Gulfarium.
The staff were very knowledgeable and taught us about dolphins, sea lions, and different marine life.
My wife, child, and grandparents loved watching the dolphins and sea lions. My son enjoyed touching the shells, starfish, and crabs.
It was really neat to see the aquarium exhibits and see the different fish. My family also loved watching an albino gator eat.
You don't need to stay all day to enjoy the experience. For young children, it's great because there are enough sea life to watch and discover for a a morning or afternoon excursion. It was a fun couple of hours.
I would recommend it for a relaxing time. It wasn't overcrowded and there were not any long lines to wait in.
I would definitely recommend it for families with young children.
