Water Adventures Location

Are you planning on visiting Destin during the peak season?

Most people visit Destin in the summer, attracted by the warmer weather. There are many activities to do in Destin during this time, including getting a pontoon boat rental and going on dolphin tours.

If you plan to visit during these months, though, you will need to take some extra steps to make your vacation a success.

Get Vacation Rentals

Hotels in the Destin area fill up fast during the spring and summer seasons. This is especially true if the hotels are run by well-known companies.

Unless you are planning your vacation months in advance, you might want to consider getting a vacation rental. In fact, sometimes vacation rentals give you better locations. Many people rent out houses located right along the beach, giving you gorgeous views and open access to the water.

Go After the First Few Weeks of April

The first two weeks of April are some of the busiest times during the early spring. After the first two weeks, lodging rates usually drop, and not as many people flock to the beaches. As such, you might find that there’s greater availability for all the activities you want to do.

If you can’t afford to wait until the crowds calm down again in the fall, consider going to Destin in between the first two weeks of April and Memorial Day. After Memorial Day, the crowds start to pick up again.

Book Activities in Advance

Many activities in Destin require you to book reservations. If you wait too long to book, you might not have the ability to do the things you want to do while visiting Destin.

Think about the types of activities you want to do and do some research on whether you need a reservation. Here are some popular activities in Destin that require reservations:

  • Pontoon boat rentals: If you want a pontoon boat rental, you’ll need to have a Temporary FL Boaters License as well as NASBLA certification. You can rent the boats for a day or half-day.
  • Dolphin excursions: If you love animals, you can book dolphin boat tours (and even sunset dolphin cruises). Most of the time, people on these tours see dolphins either in the distance or up close.
  • Snorkeling: You can explore Destin’s waters with a snorkel tour that’s perfect for everyone in the family.
