Boat Trips

BoatDestin is the premier spot to enjoy the water while on vacation.


Explore the reefs and wrecks off the Emerald Coast aboard the Aquanaut. We have several natural limestone reefs just off the coast, most reefs in 85' – with the wrecks & artificial reefs in about 60'.

During our 4 hour trip, we’ll make 2 dives – with approximately an hour surface interval in between dives.
This trip is $145 plus whatever you need to rent ( air tanks are $16 – you need 2).
Also, if you’d like to do a real easy dive, or you havn’t been in a while, or don’t have experience in the Gulf, then you can hire a Divemaster to be a buddy – for only $45 per diver. Leave the planning, navigating, stops, etc to them – and just have fun looking at the marine life!

The Aquanaut was featured in Jaws 2. Our boat, The Aquanaut, was in "Jaws II"! As a matter of fact, one of our Captains (Franky) is the grandson of the man that built the boat and played the Capt. in the movie – and his 2 uncles played the First Mates. Don’t worry folks, sharks don’t bite the same boat twice!

Things You Need To Know

  • Tanks, weights & equipment NOT included in charter price
  • Depth limits for 10-15 year olds is 60 feet (recommended trip- 3 hour)
  • Credit card number required for reservations
  • Minimum 24 hour cancellation policy
  • Check-in time for all dive charters is 1-hour prior to departure time at the Dive Shop. Please have your certification card and dive experience prior to charter. After completion of the required paperwork and having secured any rental equipment needed, you will then drive to the boat, which is located down the street at the docks.
  • Please note that the Gulf of Mexico does not usually offer visibility necessary to be able to guide a large group of divers as in the Caribbean. If you have never dived in the Gulf of Mexico, to a depth of 90 feet, in somewhat limited visibility, or have not made a dive within the last year, we recommend hiring a Divemaster to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable experience.
