Family-Friendly Beach Activities in Destin

If you are planning a vacation in Destin, we want to share some of the Top Family-Friendly Beach Activities to enjoy while you are here. There are many fun things to do on the coast, and we want to help you get the most out of your experience, so check out some suggestions from our local captain.

Sailing Charters

On the top of the Family-Friendly Activities is a Destin Tour aboard Nice Tri with Captain Pam. She offers a variety of sailing packages, from Snorkeling and Swimming Tours to Sunset and Seasonal Fireworks Cruises. These charters are perfect for all ages, including expectant mothers. Check out our Pricing and Booking page for more details about our sailing charters.

If you choose a swim and snorkel tour, Captain Pam provides everything you need for your snorkeling adventures including masks, snorkels, and life vests.

Beach Walks & Crabbing

In the evenings, you can stroll along the beach and watch the beautiful sunset with purple, orange, and red hues. If you have small children, crabbing and shelling are fun. A beach walk is a lovely way to relax after a fun day in the sun.

Building Sandcastles

One of our favorite activities is building sandcastles on the beach. You can spend hours gathering sand, shaping it into towers and turrets, and decorating your creations with seashells and driftwood. Please make sure to cover any holes you dig before you leave the beach.

Building sandcastles are a great way to bond as a family and get creative at the same time. If you want to take sandcastle lessons in Destin, we recommend Beach Sand Sculptures.

Parasailing Adventures

Another family-friendly activity to enjoy at the beach is Parasailing. Parasailing is a great activity if you like an adventure. The view is breathtaking. You can see for miles in every direction, with the beach and the Emerald water stretching as far as the eye can see. You will feel free and weightless as you glide through the air. If you want to parasail, we recommend Fort Walton Beach Parasail and Miramar Beach Parasailing.

Experience A Sailing Tour

You will have a blast exploring the Destin beaches and finding new ways to have fun as a family. We hope you book a sailing tour aboard Nice Tri when planning your family-friendly beach activities in Destin.
