Launch Points

Your launch point is where we’ll meet for your tour. We’ve hand-picked some of our favorite launch points around Destin and South Walton.  Some are on the Gulf of Mexico, others on the Choctawhatchee Bay, others in the various bayous or the area’s signature dune lakes (where allowed). These locations have public parking, and most have restrooms and rinse stations.  Contact us if you are in a Gulf-front home or condo, in most cases we can set up in your backyard!

 

Having trouble deciding?

Every group is unique, and we want you to get the most out of your tour.  While the Gulf is a great choice for water clarity and the possibility of paddling with dolphins, it only scratches the surface of your options!  Here are some things to consider which may help you decide.  In most cases we can change locations easily, so don’t feel too much pressure to make the right choice.

Skill Level

If you’re just starting out, or are not a strong paddler, flat waters are your friend.  The Gulf is sometimes truly flat, especially at sunrise. The Choctawhatchee Bay and surrounding bayous and inlets are generally flat all the time.  

Excitement Level

For a peaceful paddle in quiet, serene conditions, the bayous are a nature lover’s paradise. We recommend Hogtowne Bayou in Santa Rosa Beach. Choose a Gulf location for a more active paddle, and the best chance at seeing dolphins.  Sunrise paddles on the Gulf have the best potential to marry these two concepts beautifully, and are our most recommended tour.  Looking to be around a crowd and a part of the action?  Launch from under the Destin Bridge and visit Crab Island, where the daily party on the water can’t be beat!
