Destin, Florida, is a small city with a big heart and every year it attracts over 4 million tourists looking for some fun in the sun. The city is littered with pristine beaches, golf courses and a breathtaking landscape, but there’s much more to do in and around the place they call the Emerald Coast than just sightseeing.

Sunset Cruise

The sand that circles the Destin coast is as white as sugar and as soft as foam, and once your feet sink in you’ll never want to leave. But there’s more to this coast than its glorious beaches and with the Sunset Cruise from Dolphin Cruises you’ll see it all from the best seat in the house.

As the name suggests, these cruises take place towards the end of the day, when the sun sets on the Sunshine State and bathes the city of Destin in a warm glow. It’s a still, peaceful and almost spiritual journey that perfectly encapsulates the beauty and majesty of this region.

If you’re lucky, you’ll see some dolphins on your cruise. These playful mammals surround the Destin coast and make regular appearances, giving you plenty of Instagram-worthy pictures to remember your vacation by.

These cruises run from early Spring right on through to October, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to book one during your visit to the region.

The waters around Destin attract a wealth of wildlife, not least of which are the Bottlenose Dolphins that this region is famous for, and they are also some of the cleanest and clearest you’ll come across. It’s a match made in heaven for snorkelers, and with Flipper’s Adventures you can do just that.

You can take a guided tour in the water, coming within touching distance of the fish and turtles, and experiencing the warm, clear waters first-hand. The snorkeling adventures are perfect for all ages—if you can swim and have a passion for adventure it’s the perfect vacation activity.

If you book with Flipper’s Adventures you can even combine dolphin watching with some snorkeling, as they have a 2-stop package that covers both of these activities and keeps you busy for over 2.5 hours on the Floridian coast.

Don’t worry if you’ve never done this sort of thing before—the experts on the boat will take you to the best spots to find the dolphins and will also ensure you stay safe when in the water.

There’s a first-time for everything, and this is an experience you won’t want to pass up!
