Where to Find Fish in Destin

So, you're planning a vacation and you need to know where to find fish in Destin? This post is for you.

 Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park

Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park

Go to the Gulfarium - Since August 1955, the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park has been a great place to see marine life up-close, where education and entertainment come together for a unique experience. It's about 10 minutes west of the Destin harbor. The whole family will enjoy the Gulfarium!

Go Snorkeling - There are quite a few good places to snorkel around Destin. Three popular spots are the jetties, Gulf Islands National Seashore, and South Walton's artificial reef.

Go Fishing - If you'd rather catch fish than swim with them, you're in the right place. Destin didn't get the nickname "World's Luckiest Fishing Village" for no reason! Try the Okaloosa Island Fishing Pier, the jetties, or right from the beach. If you choose the beach, be respectful of people swimming! Nobody likes swimming next to fish guts.

Rent a Boat - If you're vacationing in Destin, I suggest renting a boat to access the best fishing spots. Don't wait until the last minute! Boating is very popular here, and boats often get booked months in advance.

Fishing Charters - If you'd rather take the guesswork out of it, a charter boat will be your best bet. It'll cost you more money, but you'll have local experts lead you to the right places.

Fishing Report - If you're a fishing enthusiast, you'll definitely want to use this chart, which tells you what you can find both inshore and offshore in the Destin area throughout the year.

Visit Andy's Art Gallery - If you like fish, you should definitely make a trip to Andy's Grayton Beach art gallery, which is located 20 minutes east of the Silver Sands Premium Outlets. He has some beautiful fish art, most of which are mixed media assemblage pieces that really need to be seen in person to fully appreciate. For example, here are a few pieces available for purchase now:
