Destin is great place for water sports, and kayaking is one of the better hobbies, in my opinion. After all, it’s great exercise, gets you outdoors into beautiful scenery and after an initial investment, you rarely have to spend money on it. The Kayak Experience is a great place for local, hands-on information, equipment and motivation. The staff here are friendly, knowledgeable and love meeting people who enjoying kayaking. – Frank G.
