    • Charter boats are available for half-day, all-day and overnight trips. Also specializing in deep-sea bottom fishing is Destin's fleet of party boats, with passenger capacities ranging from 25 to 105. All-day party boats leave the docks at approximately 7 a.m. and return to port at 5 p.m. Half-day party boats depart at 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. Regular tackle, bait and ice are furnished, and many party boats offer galley service for the fisherman's convenience. Individual trip tickets are available, and party boats may also be chartered for group fishing.
    • Fishermen need not head too far to catch largemouth bass. Sandestin's many stocked ponds offer an enjoyable fishing experience. Sandestin has a catch-and-release program. At the Baytowne Marina, fishermen can rent a boat or cast a line off the main dock for speckled trout, redfish and other Bay catches.
  • Sailing in Destin
    • Spend the perfect afternoon sailing along Northwest Florida's Gulf Coast or on the Choctawhatchee Bay. Charter sailboats are available in all sizes and can be reserved for quick one-hour getaway or for an all-day excursion. Picnic baskets are also available for the unforgettable trip.
