When we say "great outdoors," we mean great.

Good Morning America named this area one of the "Top 10 Most Beautiful Places in America," but there's more to do in Destin, Ft. Walton Beach and Okaloosa Island than check out the scenery. Whether you want to golf, fish, go boating, enjoy water sports, bird watch in the park with other ecotourists, go geocaching, or just build a sand castle with the kids, you'll find what you're looking for here.

Excursions & Sailing

If it floats, you'll find it on the Emerald Coast. Here you can charter sailboats for a romantic sunset cruise, pontoon boats for a party at sea and fishing boats for adventure.
