Adventurers can also view the sea from below the water line on a mission to find flipper and other marine life. Visitors board a glass-bottom boat and sail out to enjoy the marine life in their natural habitats and maybe even spot a pod of dolphins. You can also visit the marine life of the gulf at the Mid-Bay Marina; however you won’t be looking for them in the water. Destin is home to famous marine life artist Wyland’s Whaling Wall #88.
