Parasailing in Destin

Destin Activities

The beautiful Sea Oats Motel in lovely Destin, Florida would like to invite you and your family to come enjoy all the unique fall festivities this year with on the Emerald Coast.

Located away from all the hustle and bustle of the main drag, the Sea Oats Motel is situated amidst spectacular coastal vistas on a scenic stretch of Old Highway 98.

Each of our suites has been designed to be your home away from home while visiting our beautiful beaches. Fine furnishings, spacious living areas, sumptuous beds dressed in fresh linens, and large, modern bathrooms will ease your mind and your body.

Not only is the Sea Oats Motel conveniently located just steps from the beach or all the great dining, shopping and entertainment the city offers, but our amenities and service are so outstanding that you may never want to leave.

From lounging next to our gorgeous pools, to slipping your toes into the sugar white sand and crystal clear water on our private stretch of pristine gulf beachfront, or visiting one of the many amazing area attractions close by to the motel, we have the key to paradise for any beach lover!

Here are a few of the activities your family can enjoy just steps from the motel!

Diving & Snorkeling

What does every diver want? Great weather, great water and an underwater landscape teeming with life. Done, done and done! Experienced divers love our reefs and wrecks, and for newcomers, snorkeling is the perfect introduction to Emerald Coast water sports!


Skimboarders run towards the ocean, drop into the thin wash of retreating waves, then skim out to sea and ride the breaking waves back to shore. Our sugar-white sands and flat waters make Destin a must-skim destination.

Jet Skiing

Feel the wind in your hair and salt spray on your face as you zip across the Gulf. Personal watercraft, usually called “jet skis,” are a longtime favorite for fun in the sun at Destin whether riding solo or on a 2- or 3-seater.

Paddle Boarding

One of the hottest newcomers to Emerald Coast water sports, paddle boarding uses big boards, letting riders stand and gently paddle their way across the water.


Aka “kitesurfing,” this is one of nature’s most zen adventures – just you, a small board and wind to pull you along! In addition to Okaloosa Island, some barrier islands like Crab Island, offer spectacular and serene riding areas.


Part of what makes Destin water sports unique is that there are opportunities for everyone – experts and newbies alike – and surfing is one area where we’re perfect for beginners. With our white-sand beaches, mild climate and mid-sized Gulf waves, entry-level never felt so good!


Fast boats lift parachutes high in the air, and you with them. Go solo, or try our big chutes to share the experience with family and friends. Of all the beach sports you might try, this one that gives you a bird’s-eye view of Destin you’ll never forget!

Fall along the Emerald Coast is a beautiful, magical time of year to visit the breathtaking white sand beaches of Destin, Florida and the surrounding areas.

With day after day of gorgeous blue skies, lovely, cool temperatures and low humidity, not to mention the fact that the off season means endless stretches of uncrowded, pristine coastline for your family to enjoy practically all to yourselves and discounted rates, autumn on the pristine northern gulf coast is the best kind of treat, without the trick.

Even though our water temperatures stay fairly warm for quite some time, should you visit and decide that swimming is not for you, rest assured, there are a ton of fun activities the whole family will enjoy still left to do!

So come visit the beautiful Emerald Coast this Fall, and see what Destin is all about! 833-803-3320
