Destin’s Blessing of the Fleet

Blessing of the Fleet

It’s a beautiful sight to see – every year, the annual Blessing of the Destin Fishing Fleet takes place in the Destin harbor on Ascension Day. This year, more than 140 vessels were blessed by clergy along Destin Harbor.

  • On this day, local pastors gather to bless charter fishing boats, boat captains, boat crews, and passengers. The blessings and prayer are for safe sea passage and bountiful catches.
  • Destin area churches, civic leaders, and businesses join together to offer a variety of events under the banner “Destin’s Week of Blessings.”  This was the 61st year to celebrate this special occasion in Destin, FL.

Would you like to go fishing in the World’s Luckiest Fishing Village? Our recommended options for some of the best charter boat captains are listed under activities in Destin.
