    Max and Captain Robert were both incredible to work with. We came in for a bridal shower weekend and I will never book with anyone else. They were prompt, attentive and so much fun. I can not recommend them enough. Thank you guys for making a great trip even better.

    30' Double Decker Tritoon Slide Boat for Destin Florida. CRAB ISLAND PERFECT!

    When I say the bachelorette party would not have been the same without the experience Will and his drivers provided... I mean it! We had a large group of about 14 girls headed to Crab Island ready to party and were able to do just that! From the time of booking and even prior Will was very communicative and fast to respond with answers to the million questions we threw at him. The pontoon was clean and absolutely PERFECT. I highly suggest getting a driver too. Will’s guys are professional but also so fun, personable, and genuinely want to see everybody have a good time. Could not have asked for better than Jasson and Rod, you guys truly made our day everything we hoped it would be and then some :) 10/10 will be calling Will if we come back

    I have been on 2 of these boat trips before and Max blew them out of the water!! He was absolutely fantastic! The boat was great, he had all of the essentials and activities, took us to the best spot at crab island, was caring and attentive, and all around excellent as a person! You cannot go wrong with booking Max for your next day on the water!!

    Explore Destin or Crab Island on our 2022 Bentley Pontoon!!

    We rented a boat for six people and two dogs. The captain was very nice and chill but the destination, to us, was rather underwhelming. Crab island was a boring water frat party and the snorkeling experience was … sad. This was more a function of Destin rather than the boat experience. The pontoon was clean and spacious. The captain was very good.

    Epic day at Crab Island! We had a party of 10 adults. Plenty of space for everyone and our belongings! Captain was entertaining and full of knowledge about the area! We booked a 6 hr day and ended up extending to 8 hrs because we were having so much fun! Great experience with this booking, would highly recommend!

Boating Guide - Fort Walton Beach

Fort Walton is one of the top destinations along the Florida panhandle, offering visitors warm weather, emerald waters, white sandy beaches, and a ton of outdoor activities. There are 16 beach neighborhoods, making it an excellent place for a family vacation if you want easy access to sun and sand. This treasure along the gulf coast is a place that must be experienced from the water. Rent a pontoon, yacht, jet ski, or other watercraft for exploring without spending all your budget on a boat day.

Here are GetMyBoat’s top picks for things to do with a boat rental in Fort Walton Beach:

Fort Walton Boat Rentals & Charters

Traveling to Fort Walton Beach with a large group? Rent a spacious pontoon with family and friends for a fun-filled day on the water. A pontoon rental is one of the most affordable boat rental options, with prices starting from $90/hour. You can include watersport equipment like a tube or wakeboard for some added fun. If you get hungry during your boat day in Fort Walton Beach, you can pull up to one of the dockside restaurants with incredible views and grab a bite to eat before cruising back out on the water again.

Cruise in style on a luxury yacht and enjoy the panoramic views of the coastline. Relax as the crew provides you with a fun, safe, and personal experience on the waters of Fort Walton Beach. Enjoy dinner and a sunset cruise on the spacious deck, or admire playful dolphins swimming in the wake of your own personal charter.

Sandbar Exploration

No trip to Fort Walton Beach is complete without stopping at a sandbar! Sandbars allow you to anchor your boat in shallow water and enjoy some fun in the sun. Break out your beach chairs, turn up the music, and party with other boaters nearby. Looking for a more relaxing experience? You can sunbathe on the boat deck, enjoy a picnic at sea, or spend quality time in the water with family and friends. We recommend spending the day at Crab Island or the 2nd Sandbar.

Dolphin-Watching Tour in Fort Walton Beach

One of the #1 experiences for families on vacation in Fort Walton Beach is a dolphin cruise. It’s a magical way to get on the water and interact with marine life while enjoying stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico. Go at sunset to see dolphins and the changing colors of the gorgeous sky. Or, book a daytime cruise to spot some dolphins and then anchor at a sandbar for swimming.

Watersports in Fort Walton Beach

There’s no shortage of watersports in Fort Walton Beach. With the emerald waters of the Gulf and extensive beaches, there are many activities to enjoy for kids and adults of all ages and interests. Tubing is a great family-friendly watersport and a surefire way for your kids to have a memorable time on the boat. If tubing isn't your thing, you can cheer your family on from the boat deck.

Renting a jet ski is a fun and fast way to explore Fort Walton Beach. They’re a great option for the adventure seeker looking to spend some time on the water. Interested in trying a new watersport? Book a kiteboarding lesson or e-foil lesson with GetMyBoat. Spend your day on the water learning a new skill with family and friends.

Weather & Seasons in Fort Walton Beach

While you can go boating year-round in Fort Walton Beach, it can get a bit chilly during the winter months. We recommend visiting Fort Walton Beach from April - June, and September - November. During this time you can expect fewer crowds than peak summer, and gorgeous weather that won’t be too hot.

Come here to find sand dollars, starfish, and small fish swimming about in the shallow waters around the sandbar. Get here by paddleboard, kayak, or on a boat tour. Don’t forget to bring a mask and snorkel or at least goggles. It is shallow enough to stand up in most of the areas around the sandbar.

Crab Island

This iconic sandbar is one of the most popular summertime attractions in the area. Vacationers and locals in Fort Walton Beach and Destin. It’s too far from shore to swim for the average person, so make sure you rent a boat, charter a yacht, rent some kayaks or a paddleboard, and cruise on over. It’s a family-friendly sandbar, while there are boat parties for young adults, there is plenty to enjoy for families with small children at Crab Island too.
