  • Great Fishing

    by Aliseeya Updated Dec 13, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I'm not much of a fisherman, but the fishing in Destin is fantastic. There are many places which offer chartered fishing tips, so there's lots to choose from. Every year they have the Destin Fishing Rodeo -- sponsored by A.J.'s. There is also a Bass Pro Shop located in the Destin Commons -- which is the ultimate toystore for any outdoorsman!

    While I don't really go fishing, I have been fishing a couple of times in Destin off of the jetties. Sadly, I didn't catch a thing and quickly gave up, but my husband caught some nice-sized fish.

    Regatta Bay Golf Course

    I don't play golf myself, but my Dad & brother go about 2 or 3 times every year when we're in Destin. Destin is a great place for golfers. I understand the golf courses are just beautiful. This is the place my Dad played at this year. He said there was water on every hole & it was a challenging course.

    Wave runners

    Wave runners

    I've never actually tried it, but you can rent these wave runners while you're out on the beach. This year there was a place right next to our hotel where you could rent the wave runners & take them out for what I believe they said was $50 for a half hour & $80 for a full hour. According to their sign they also do dolphin excursions. One of the guys that worked for the place renting them kept going out & riding them himself. I suppose he was trying to round up some business.

    Equipment: They supply the life jackets & wave runners.

    Parasailing

    Parasailing in Florida

    We went parasailing once when we went to Destin. I'd never done it before, but I really want to go again. It was much more relaxing than I thought it would be. I'm not a big fan of heights, but when you are on your way up from the back of the boat it's a rather smooth ride up there. It was nice, too, because I could see dolphins in the water below me.
