Get the summer started off right with early vacations to Fort Walton Beach. Fun, sun, water, and more await you and your group, along with some indoor activities for a momentary break from the heat while still having fun. No matter what you’re looking for, there’s a fun activity to fill your time.

Public Beach

A trip to Florida can be packed full of fun, and a trip to Florida’s Emerald Coast deserves plenty of beach time. Pack up the beach gear and your group and head to the shimmering waters of the Gulf. If the early summer water temperature isn’t to your liking, there are plenty of other beach activities to enjoy. Spread out on the sand and sunbathe, take a walk along the shore, build sandcastles, or enjoy the soothing sound of the waves while you read a book. If water sports are your thing no matter what the water temperature, splash around for a while or try snorkeling, paddleboarding, and a myriad of other water activities.

Pirate Cruise

Get a feel for the pirate days of old when you and your group board the Sea Dragon. Captain “Fearless” Phil and his crew provide a swashbuckling good time that’s sure to please guests of any age.  The two-hour cruise includes sea life sightings, music, and plenty of pirate-themed fun. Kids in the group will love sword fighting, treasure map reading, pirate tattoos and face painting, firing the “Kid Cannon” and more. There are plenty of cold drinks, snacks, t-shirts, and other pirate booty to create a fun and memorable experience.

Fort Walton Beach Parasail

Take to the sky for a different adventure and a way to see the beautiful Emerald Coast. Parasailing is a fun, adrenaline-filled way to get a bird’s eye view of Fort Walton Beach. Strap into the harness by yourself or with two others and take off from the deck of the specially designed and USCG-approved parasailing boat. Choose to stay dry for the duration of the flight or wear your swimsuit and take a little dip in Choctawhatchee Bay before taking to the air again for a safe landing back on deck. Book a camera and GoPro package for a record of the flight from your view in the harness.

Private Catamaran Cruise

Enjoy a bit of luxury on your Fort Walton Beach vacation. Book a private catamaran cruise for you and your group and enjoy the water and soak up the sun without getting wet. There are daytime and sunset cruises available. Make sure you bring along your camera and keep your eyes peeled for sightings of sea life like pelicans and other sea birds, bottlenose dolphins, manatees, and more. Make the experience extra special and ask about champagne and dining options while onboard the vessel. Ask about group size limits or other special needs before booking.


An activity that is tens of thousands of years old is one of Florida’s most popular pleasure activities for people of all ages and ability levels. Enjoy some time on the water and bring home lunch or dinner to grill up at your accommodations. You can opt to stay close to shore on an inshore or nearshore excursion, or explore the bayous, flats, and inlets of the area with a fly fishing trip. For an adrenaline boost while you fish, consider a deep-sea trip, including shark fishing. If you view fishing as an activity for just you and your group, rent some gear and head down to the beach to wade in the water and see what’s biting close to shore. Before booking an excursion, make sure there are no age minimums or other restrictions, and whether you’ll need a temporary Florida fishing license.

Emerald Coast Mirror Maze

If the early summer weather isn’t cooperating, or you just want some time indoors in the air conditioning, you’ll find fun for the whole group at the Emerald Coast Mirror Maze. The maze is a 2,300-square-foot maze that will keep you turning circles as you try to find your way out. Once you’ve completed the maze, challenge your group members to a game of Pirate’s Quest laser tag in the 1,800-square-foot arena. Cap off the fun and experience what it might be like to be a secret agent when you twist and weave your way through the laser challenge. Move slow and stealthily to get away undetected. Hit a laser and suffer a time penalty at the end of the round.
