Cruising The Emerald Coast

Golf travel is so much more than playing a distant course. It is about engaging in new activities before or after the round.

In the beautiful Emerald Coast region of Florida the gulf serves up an abundance of rich coastal activities. As you might lie on the white sandy beach listening to the lapping waves, you can’t help but wonder what life is teeming beneath.

As sea gulls and pelicans dive in for their food an occasional family of dolphins dance in and out of the waves. You hear the ocean calling your name and you want to cruise. Who are you going to call?

Many savvy captains would love to welcome you aboard their watercraft with options of speed, dining, dolphin spotting and more. If this is a family trip, the kids will never forget a Buccaneer Pirate Cruise, will they?

Ay matey, prepare for a swash buckling good time treasure hunting, singing and dancing on the 100-foot pirate ship from Destin Harbor to Choctawhatchee Bay. Storytelling will fire you up and water gun battles will cool you down.

If you left the kids at home but occasionally find yourself singing, “Yoho, yoho, a pirate’s life for me,” then sign up for their Saturday night Scurvy Dogs’ Club cruise. This is for adults only with warnings on the suitability of jokes. They aren’t the only pirate game in town though.

The Daniel Webster Clements offers pirate trips and conveniently docks at AJ’s Seafood and Oyster Bar. If it’s romance you seek on the sea, have a few fresh oysters with a glass of chardonnay or champagne and then board the Daniel for a sunset cruise returning by the light of the moon.

Golf is fantastic on the Emerald Coast but the after golf life? It is divine!
