No matter what time of year you need a getaway, the year-round fun, warmth, and sun of Florida is waiting to give you all the rest and relaxation you desire. When planning the perfect Florida adventure, you’ll want to include plenty of tours and experiences that give you the chance to get up close and in the thick of everything. Fort Walton Beach and the surrounding area offer plenty of activities, tours, and experiences to keep everyone in the group happy, entertained, and busy throughout the trip. Check out the top tours in Fort Walton Beach below!
Fort Walton Beach Parasail
Take the adventure above the waves. Parasailing is a fun and exhilarating way to see the sights of Fort Walton Beach and the Emerald Coast from a bird’s perspective. Strap into the harness and take off from the deck of a specially designed and USCG-approved parasailing boat for an unforgettable ride. If the water is a bit cool for your liking, you can choose to stay dry your entire flight. If a refreshing dip is on your list, wear your swim gear and get that refreshing dip in Choctawhatchee Bay before soaring up high again and landing safely on the boat deck. Book a camera and GoPro package to get a record of your trip from your point of view. The harness can take up to three riders at a time, so you can brave the skies alone or convince two of your friends to come up with you.
Jet Ski Tours in Fort Walton Beach
Take a guided tour of Crab Island and the surrounding waters while captaining your own vessel. There are several companies offering jet ski tours of the area where you can pilot your own craft to points of interest around Fort Walton Beach, including Crab Island. You and your friends can double up or choose to cruise on your own. Guests born after January 1, 1988 who are looking to take the controls must obtain a Florida boater safety certificate before the adventure. On-site testing is available, just around 60 minutes before your scheduled tour.
Go up, up, and away for a fun bird’s eye view of the area. The Coastal Biplane, better known as the Spirit of 30A, was built in 2010. Despite the modern build, the aircraft reflects the timeless look and feel of the classic 1930s biplane design. The Ferrari-red colored open-cockpit of the Waco YMF-5 biplane seats the pilot and two side-by-side passengers – the perfect arrangement for a romantic flight for two, or a treat for you and your favorite companion. You can enjoy a short 20-minute cruise or choose one a package that includes more time in the sky. No matter which you choose, you’re in for a thrill you’ll never forget.
Private Catamaran Cruise
There are plenty of ways to spend time in and on the water during your Fort Walton Beach escape. For some private time on the water with your group or sweetheart, soak up the sun and enjoy the luxury of a private cruise. Embark on a sunset sail in a catamaran or take a daytime tour. You might even spot pelicans or other sea birds flying overhead, or bottlenose dolphins or manatees out for a swim. Ask about champagne or dining options aboard the vessel.
Sail the sea as the pirates once did. Board the Sea Dragon for a swashbuckling good time with Captain “Fearless” Phil and his crew. Fun for kids of all ages, including those young at heart, the two-hour cruise packs in plenty of pirate fun. Keep your eyes open for sightings of sea life, enjoy music and other activities. Cold drinks, as well as snacks, t-shirts, and other pirate booty are available while on board the boat. Kids will love sword fighting, reading a treasure map, getting a pirate tattoo or face paint, or firing the “kid cannon,” among other pirate-themed activities.
Fishing is an activity people of all ages and ability levels can enjoy. No matter what time of year, there’s a fun and exciting fishing trip awaiting you and your group in Fort Walton Beach. Stay close to shore with inshore and nearshore fishing, explore the bayous, flats, and inlets with a fly fishing excursion, or brave the waves of the Gulf for a deep sea trip or the excitement of shark fishing. The captain may have age minimums for deep sea excursions. If you and your group view fishing as a small group or more solitary activity, rent some gear and head down to the beach for surf fishing to see what’s biting close to shore.
