    Dave had everything so put together. He was very fast and efficient and communicative. He had it stocked with a few drinks, toys, and ice. The boat was in immaculate condition, and he had us on our way within minutes of arriving. Highly recommend using him!

    E-Foil Lessons in Fort Walton Beach, Florida!

    Michael was an amazing teacher and incredibly kind and patient. My Dad, brother, and I had a great time learning from him and could not be happier with our lesson. I would highly recommend e-foiling with Michael to anyone looking for a unique and fun experience with friends or family.

    2022 Lexington Pontoon Boat rental in Fort Walton Beach/ Destin FL.

    Our captain was great! We had so much fun. The boat was well equipped and comfortable. The price is unbeatable for the area. Our captain made sure we got some nice photos throughout the tour and saw all the hotspots! The captain also provided us with floaties and waterproof phone cases. We couldn't have asked for a better trip or captain.

    10/10 recommend booking with Adam. He made us a great deal for 6 hours and even let us switch our times before the trip. It was my wife’s birthday and Adam went out of his way to buy her a bottle of champagne. Great guy and nice boat . Crab island was a blast.

    Private Luxury Yacht in Fort Walton Beach

    If you haven’t ever experienced boating in Destin then this is the one to choose. Plenty of room from the front to back and the inside has all the amenities you could possibly want/need. Bring food and “cool pops” and the rest is taken care of! Truly a great and worthwhile experience! Captain Brian is the perfect host as well as his wife Michelle. Definitely an experience that is well worth every penny!

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.

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.
