Choose Between Two Options
- $35 for a snorkel excursion; choose between the all-day outing or two-stop tour (up to a $70 value)<p>
Pairs who choose the all-day snorkel outing reach the harbor in time for a 9 a.m. departure, but late arrivals can still board regular shuttle boats out to the main boat’s anchored location. After strapping on their provided gear and swimming submerged in clear waters rich with colorful fish and sea urchins, adventurers get free access to sea kayaks and beaches on Holiday Isle, removing the need for them to commandeer their own islands. The two-stop tour comes with the same benefits, but instead lead participants to the bay’s seashell-collecting hot spots. After shelling, pairs depart on a dolphin sight-seeing tour, and then docks briefly at the Holiday Isle’s jetties before returning to port.
- $86 for a two-hour Snuba tour for two aboard the Snuba Runner (up to a $172 value)<p>
Following a 15-minute safety and tour briefing, participants strap into full snuba systems including a harness, mask, fins, and weight belt. The system combines technology used in snorkeling and scuba diving to allow dives within 30 feet of water. Participants can practice hand signals for underwater communication, proper breathing, and controlled ascents and descents before embarking on the fully underwater tour. Lasting up to an hour, experienced guides keep tours close to the boat to keep participants from running off with any nearby mermaid impersonators.
Under the right guidance, the clear blue waters around Destin's harbor become visible from every angle—the air, the surface, or deep below. Destin Snorkel leads a comprehensive roster of area adventure tours, granting guests total flexibility to join or leave their excursion at any time. Guides steer one of three boats through the bay, keeping all their participants' needed snorkeling or snuba gear onboard and unhaunted by pirate ghosts to allow frequent plunges into waters rich with seashells and wildlife. When not pausing at shallow-water dive sites, boats embark on day cruises for dolphin sightseeing tours or at night to showcase fireworks over the harbor skyline. Sea kayaks also allow visitors to venture off on their own into the waters around Crab Island and Holiday Isle.
Alternatively, FFA-certified flight instructors provide a different perspective, soaring over the coastline in beach-discovery flights. During any of the cruises and tours, guides may expound on the local ecosystem and the harbor's history, revealing whether the town's first civilians ever taught dolphins how to open their eyes above water.
