A favorite of locals and tourists alike is Dewey Destin’s. Dewey’s great, great grandfather founded Destin in 1835. Locally owned, the Destin family honors his love of the water by serving fresh, sustainable seafood. There are several locations to visit, and we recommend you come ready for delicious seafood and Old Florida charm. For example, try the fried crab claws or the mahi-mahi sandwich.

Our Gulf Coast waters are not only beautiful, but offer ample activities. If fishing and boating are your speed, you’re in luck! Set off on First Light with Captain Steve Haeusler, Only Way with Captain Curt Gwin or Sea Winder with Captain Chris Couvillon. We know and trust each of these captains to provide a fantastic experience. While on the Gulf, you may even catch a glimpse of the area’s dolphins.
