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 â€śDestinâ€™s Week of Blessings.â€ť Â This was the 61st year to celebrate this special occasion in Destin, FL.
