Now is the Perfect Time to Experience Paddleboarding in Destin

This year is a great time to explore all of your options when it comes to experiencing the beautiful Destin waterways!

There are wonderful ways to see Destin…sailboat…pontoon boat…jet skiing…even from 500 feet in the air – parasailing. Another way to see Destin is up close and personal us on a SUP Paddleboard! Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) is a fun way to explore the many Destin area waterways, from a unique vantage point and also get a nice workout!

There are plenty of places here in Destin to rent a paddleboard – these vendors also not only supply quality, high-end equipment, but also offer easy to understand instruction so you can enjoy your time on the water – safely.

Before you grab your shiny new paddleboard and head to the water for the first time there are a few things to know:
  • Start off on a calm body of water…away from boats, jet skis, etc. that can cause wakes. A great place is one of our beautiful sandy beaches..which on a calm day can be like your backyard swimming pool.
  • Also, try to pick a not-so-windy day… not a common thing at the beach…but a nice soft, ocean breeze is ok. If it happens to be a brisk wind then make sure you paddle with the wind at the end of your adventure when you are less tired.
  • Keep your initial trip down to about 45 – 60 minutes and definitely go with a friend, which is always a good thing on your first attempt.
