Spring Break Bucket List for Destin, Florida

Destin, Florida is famous for it’s beautiful white sand and clear emerald waters but the off-season can make the “luckiest fishing village” a little quiet. Us Destin locals welcome the warmer weather and new visitors every March affectionately called Spring Breakers!

Fishing, Parasailing, & Snorkeling
Spring break is scheduled for different schools across the country at various times keeping the town full with transitioning groups all month. While in Destin, of course you need to walk the beautiful beaches along the Emerald Coast but here are some other musts you need to include on your vacation for the full Destin experience!

  1. Deep Sea Fishing – Spend a day fishing the Gulf of Mexico. Several options are available inGrouperDestin for deep sea fishing whether you are an experienced angler or beginner fisherman. Book a private fishing charter for the ultimate saltwater fun for your group. Private charters vary depending on how many hours, how far you want to go fishing. Want a private but not the investment?Then consider booking a shared fishing charter where you are grouped together with other anglers to build a charter for a fun day of fishing. Fishing aboard a party boat (also called a head boat) can be an economical and fun way to get out on the water however keep in mind that this is a multi-passenger fishing experience with a much larger group of people fishing too!  All fishing trips at Pelican Adventures include fishing license, tackle and fish cleaning. Click here to check out various options Pelican Adventures offers on the Destin, Harbor.
  2. Inshore Fishing – Fishing near shore and inshore along the Emerald Coast are a lot of fun and much calmer waters. The Choctawhatchee Bay, East Pass and Bayous make for some great fishing as well as along the surf in the Gulf of Mexico. Includes live bait, fishing license and your catch is cleaned following the trip. Click here for more information on Pelican Adventures’ Inshore Fishing Charters.
  3. Parasailing – Get a bird’s eye view of the coast parasailing Destin! Fun for all ages (6 and up, 50 lbs and over) and a safe and fun way to make forever memories with your family and friends. Parasailing directly off the back of the boat, riders don’t have to even get wet! However, the best part of parasailing is the dip 🙂 Likely to see some dolphins on the way in and out of the Destin Harbor, the parasailing excursion is a really great activity on the water that shouldn’t be missed.
