Snorkeling F.A.Q.

Do I need to make a reservation?

Yes, advance reservations are highly recommended; our tours sell out.  You do not pay in advance with Destin Snorkel; we only take your name, mobile phone number, and number of guests.  We do request a credit card to secure SNUBA and group reservations.  We do not charge your card for payment; you may pay separately with cash or credit card at check-in.

How do I make a reservation?

Making a reservation has never been easier.  You can book online or call give us at (850) 269-2329.

What if I need to cancel?

If your plans change, please give us a call to cancel your reservation so we may open up the seat for another guest.  Because we don’t charge payment in advance, no refund is required.

What if it rains?

If we need to cancel the tour due to weather, we will contact you with as much advance notice as we are able.  Typically light rain does not cancel a tour, we have canopies to keep you dry.

Do I need to bring a life jacket?

Our fleet is Coast Guard approved; we have life jackets aboard all of our vessels.  If your children have a life jacket they prefer, you are more than welcome to bring it.

What do I need to bring?

We provide all of the equipment needed for your snorkel or SNUBA tour.  Every tour also includes complimentary soda and bottled water.  You are welcome to bring a cooler with food, snacks, or any other beverages (no glass please).  For day tours, be sure to have on your bathing suit and bring a beach towel and sunscreen.

Should we tip?
