Destin Family Reunion: 7 Fun Activities to Try

If you’re planning a Destin family reunion and you’ve been put in charge of things to do, you may be looking for activities that work well for large groups. Each year, we get dozens of calls from people who are planning excursions for their family reunions or large groups and the planner almost invariably isn’t sure where to begin. We put together this post as a way to help you come up with ideas, plan, and start scheduling your next family reunion or event in Destin.

  1. Crab Island Water Park: The Crab Island Water Park is loads up fun for all ages! This giant inflatable obstacle course is set up at Crab Island from around Memorial Day to Labor Day and features all kids of slip-sliding fun that will have you laughing for years to come. You’ll have to rent or charter a boat to get there, and purchase an armband from the floating kiosk next to the inflatables. crab island waterpark
  2. Sailboat charter: Take a sunset cruise aboard the catamaran Smile n Wave, and sail off into the sunset with your group of up to 6 passengers. Take in the sights, sightsee for dolphins, and enjoy the company of your friends and family as your day winds down. Bring wine and food to enjoy on the trip! destin sailboat sunset cruises
  3. Deep Sea Fishing: Plan a fishing trip for up to 23 people and see why Destin is known as the World’s Luckiest Fishing Village. Target red snapper, grouper, amberjack, or mahi mahi as you fish the depths of the Gulf with the experienced captain and crew. Bonus: the crew will filet and bag up your catch which you can grill or fry later at a family fish fry! family reunions in destin fishing trips large groups
  4. Pirate Cruise: If you have plenty of young children in your group, plan a pirate adventure day aboard a pirate ship. The boat accommodates up to 40 passengers and the tour can include dressing up, facepainting, treasure hunting and a water cannon war against a villain. destin pirate cruise
  5. Speed boat tour: A group of up to 14 passengers can ride in style on this speed boat tour, where you’ll watch for dolphins, sightsee, and hit up Crab Island for a day of fun in the sun. As with other tours, rates include the captain and crew member to cater to your family’s every need. destin speed boat tours florida
  6. Pontoon boat rentals: We offer pontoon boats for rent that seat 8-15 people each. Rent one or a few to accommodate your group and spend the day anchored at Crab Island for some fun in the sun. Add a jet ski rental for some extra fun at a discounted rate. Unlike with boat tours, you’ll have free reign during your rental as you’ll pilot the boat yourselves. (Pontoon boats are easy to drive with some basic instruction that you’ll receive upon arrival.) destin family reunion things to do
  7. Waverunner Dolphin Tours: We offer guided dolphin tours on waverunners, which can be a fun addition to your family reunion. Waverunners sit close to the water so watching the dolphins from this vantage point feels more up-close and personal. Guides know where the dolphins like to feed, so you are more likely to see them during a guided tour than on your own.

Whichever activity you choose, we at Destin Vacation Boat Rentals hope you have found this list of activities to be helpful in planning your family reunion or event for large groups. If we can assist you in planning any of these activities, please give us a call at (850) 650-2628.
