Destin Harbor, Destin Bridge & Crab Island
Destin Harbor is in Destin, Florida in Okaloosa County.
Destin Harbor is often a little crowded near the mouth of the harbor. The entire harbor is a no wake zone though so it's a comfortable
place to canoe or kayak without having to worry about getting run over. Most of the harbor is about 15 feet deep. There are a lot of restaurants at Destin Harborwalk & the Emerald Grand. There
are plenty of places to rent a boat, or rent a jet ski, or go parasailing. The harbor is well known for its fishing boat fleet and is a good place to charter a fishing boat.
Most of the charter boats have their contact information at the dock. There is a large condo at the Harborwalk for those looking for a room to rent.
Crab Island is about 100 yards north of the middle of Destin Bridge. It's not really an "island" though. Even on low tide, it's not above water. Crab Island is really just a shallow water sand bar. It's a couple acres of shallow water with a sandy bottom. There is often a strong current here. It's a very popular spot with the locals, especially during the summertime. It's mostly a party spot and a pick up spot and it's gets pretty crazy. Lots of drunk people. On any given day there will be a couple hundred boats, canoes and kayakers on "Crab's Island".
