Family paddleboarding

Water, Water Everywhere

If it’s fun and it floats, you’ll probably find it at Baytowne Marina. WaveRunners, kayaks, pontoon boats, water bikes and boogie boards. Get out on the water for a relaxing paddle or get your adrenaline pumping bursting through the waves. Either way, our waters are always warm and waiting to be explored, however you choose. How you enjoy your day on or in the water is only limited by your imagination. The best part? One of Sandestin’s many great perks is one hour free kayak rentals and one hour of boogie boards, weather permitting. Now let’s make some waves.
