we were given glorified courtesy slips for the Margaritaville restaurant to stay in. The people eating in the restaurant were 2 feet off the back of my boat. Also the pier I was on was also the loading site for a charter boat so there was always a lines of folks coming and going right next to my boat, no security at all. We felt like a zoo exhibit all day and night. We could not wait to get out of that place. We spent $200 for one night slip rental on a 38' boat (the most expensive for our entire trip). Next time in Destin I will just stay anchored in the harbor and call the water taxi to get to the board walk...
Our slip was directly in front of Margaritaville. At first I was unsure about the slip location but turns out it was perfect! We basically had free live music to listen to all evening and all that the harborwalk has to offer at our fingertips. The staff was awesome and very friendly. We will definitely be back again.

Very helpful in the reservation process. I had to delay a couple of times due to weather. Also very accommodating when helping me in (I singlehand). Also had let me us a 30 to 50 amp converter at no charge). Tku! I will be back!
Extremly expensive and without any service, tied up at the fuel jetty.
At $4.50/ft/night I would expect showers and wifi but neither were available. It's not that they were broken they don't exist.
We were very disappointed with this facility. We were on the gas dock where folks just constantly come up to look at our boat. In addition the lack of facilities ie showers laundry etc did not justify the dockage fee charged. We will not be returning to this marina.
not a full service marina by a long shot but we like being right in the middle of the action in destin.. we will book the slip again
The staff was excellent! If you are a party person this will be a great stop. Lots to see and do. Great restaurants all around. It is expensive for not having a typical marina facility, no boaters areas, no pool, The reservation process was TERRIBLE! What could have been accomplished in a 5 minute or less phone call took 2-1/2 days with emails going back and forth then when I called the day of my arrival to let them know I might be late the dockhand on duty couldn't find my reservation , he had to call his boss and call me back. 10 minutes later he called and everything was fine it just hadn't been put in his book.
We paid for a boat slip, and I was told we'd have one. All that we got was parking next to the gas pumps. My boat was moved multiple times, and not by me. One of the times the boat was moved, they didn't use the buoys to protect it from beating against the dock. I now have cracked and scratched gel coat. Thanks a lot for nothing. I will make sure I leave a review on every social media platform to get my point across. $900+ for a slip that we never got. Not to mention we always had to wait to leave or come back in because of other boats using the gas pumps. Total BS, waste of money, and disappointment.
Loved the proximity to all the shops and restaurants. Very helpful dock hands. 42ft. Motor yacht.
The staff at harborwalk marina are very professional, and were always so nice and helpful. Suggesting the best local restaurants, their fishing knowledge and wonderful personalities! Definitely coming back!
Very friendly staff. Great place for a night of fun.
The workers where great but the docks are noisy at night and no bathhouses are onsite. We will not be back.
