Places around Fort Walton Beach to check out on your boat rental include Okaloosa Island, nearby Destin (a hot spot for Spring Break) Crab Island, and one of many white sandy beaches that this stretch of coast is known for. Enjoy watersports on your boat rental, or see if you can bring floaties along to have a relaxing time when you stop the boat and jump overboard for a swim.
Fort Walton Beach is known for the soft, white sandy beaches and for being a quieter vacation destination. It’s less popular than nearby Destin, offering more affordable accommodation options and less of a party crowd atmosphere. It’s great for older couples or families with young children who want a relaxing vacation without hoards of people on the beaches.
The water and beaches around the Emerald Coast of Florida’s panhandle (where Fort Walton Beach is) are arguably the best in the entire state. They offer incredible swimming and sunbathing conditions, and you’ll definitely want to bring a mask and snorkel to enjoy the high visibility in the waters here.
During the Spring Break season, it’s always busy on all beaches of Florida. If you visit during the low season or one of the shoulder seasons, Fort Walton Beach can be very welcoming and not too crowded. If you visit during Spring Break and want to avoid the hoards of people on the sand - rent a boat during your stay in Fort Walton Beach to cruise around away from the crowds.
Amazing yacht charter trip. Trust the reviews and book. The yacht is beautiful and Daniel and Esther are professional and friendly. It was an amazing experience. Sitting up on the deck, getting out in the water and on the mat, seeing dolphins, having snacks and drink and feeling the breeze! Best part of our trip and definitely worth it! Everything we expected it to be and our kids loved it too!
This was a great way to spend the afternoon in Destin! We hung out at Crab Island for a few hours and even saw some dolphins! Our captain, Dre, was awesome and accommodating. 10/10 would recommend to anyone coming to Destin.
Our family had a great experience aboard Neptune’s Reward. The experience was relaxing...just what our family needed on vacation. It was great to see the area, and jump into the water in the Destin Harbor to cool off. They thought of great accessories from the water floats, to the Bluetooth speaker, to the ice chest, etc. Dan & Esther were incredibly attentive, had tons of knowledge of the area, and we loved hearing your story of starting this charter experience! We’d highly recommend!
Anthony’s knowledge of the area and professionalism are second to none! He is so accommodating and easy to talk to! He had tubes and rafts for the kids and was more than helpful! I will only hire him moving forward.
Captain Nathan was absolutely amazing. Not only was he on time and very communicative, but he was just simply awesome on our trip. He kept offering to get us anything we needed off the boat while we were in the water so that we didn't have to even get out! We LOVED his float and paddle board that he provided! He was so nice and attentive! We will absolutely book again when in Destin!
Daniel and Esther were both so amazing and welcoming right from the start. We were able to cruise and enjoy most of our time on the front of the boat, but also enjoyed some water time. There is a large JBL speaker to enjoy your music on and plenty of room to get out of the sun if need be. Spotting the dolphins for us to watch and swim with us was a great bonus! The birthday surprise was perfect and would definitely charter this yacht again! Thanks for everything!
