Go Fishing

Fishing is a popular activity at Choctawhatchee Bay. With the region's wide variety of marine life, including redfish, sheepshead, flounder, speckled trout, and black drum, you might even be able to catch your dinner and cook it right on the beach. The area has many rivers, lakes, and streams; standout fishing spots are available at Fort Walton, Destin, Shalimar, Santa Rosa, and Niceville. 

Visit Crab Island

Crab Island is a relatively recent addition to the Destin landscape and a fun place to socialize in Choctawhatchee Bay. Technically, it's not really an island. When the Destin Pass was dredged in the 1960s, the resultant large sand deposit created what's now an underwater sandbar that's about two to 10 feet deep in most locations. Only reachable by boat or water taxi, this busy party area is usually chock-full of vendors, kids, and sunbathers.

Rent a Paddleboard

Choctawhatchee Bay has beautiful, clear water and a lovely landscape that's navigable by various kinds of watercraft. Stand-up paddleboards, also known as SUP boards, are fun ways to explore the area. A SUP board is like a large surfboard that you steer while standing up using a long paddle. Many people also enjoy practicing yoga on a paddleboard as it creates a stable surface. Plenty of companies in the Choctawhatchee Bay area offer paddleboard rentals.

Take a Cruise

The Choctawhatchee Bay area is home to many cruise companies that will allow you to experience the unique coastal environment from the ocean. If you’re lucky, you may even spot a pod of dolphins. Small-boat tours are also available that take in the backwaters of the bay and point out historical landmarks.
