Providing a fun, safe alternative to traveling between Destin and South Walton with multiple stops along Scenic 30A!


Our Vision

In 2016 South Walton and Okaloosa counties were visited by over seven million people. The opportunity for these visitors to take advantage of what both destinations have to offer has been hindered by a lack of transportation options. With the influx of this many people, the need for a viable transportation alternative is at hand. Gulf Coast Go is here to help resolve this ongoing and frustrating problem.

Our “hop-on-hop-off” Gulf Coast Go line, we will be able to connect South Walton visitors with the many attractions and businesses that Destin and Miramar Beach have to offer. On that same note, Destin tourists will now have the opportunity to enjoy a bit of the unique lifestyle that is found in South Walton. We will accomplish this by using a fleet of double decker buses and trolleys along Hwy. 98, Scenic 98 and Scenic 30-A. The ultimate goal is to offer more variety to tourists and garner repeated travelers to Destin and South Walton while helping alleviate an ever-growing traffic problem. There isn’t a travel option like this available for tourists visiting South Walton and Destin and we are sure the reduction in the number of vehicles traveling between these destinations will be significant.

Gulf Coast Go will also help with the ever-increasing parking issues in Destin and South Walton. By offering this service, tourists can gain access to attractions, restaurants, retail and activities without the struggle of parking. Gulf Coast Go believes parking concerns will then be alleviated and traffic patterns will be influenced to help ease the traffic burden on Hwy. 98 and Scenic 30-A.

What We Do

Our initial routes will have multiple stops from Scenic Highway 30-A to Okaloosa island. We have already secured ten locations or “stops” along Hwy 98 and Scenic 30-A and additional locations will be added in the future as the need arises. It will now be easy for riders to explore shopping, dining, water-sports and attractions throughout their journey on Gulf Coast Go. We will also have the capability to book local activities for riders, such as dolphin tours, paddle boarding, fishing charters, parasailing, watercraft rentals, water parks and more. We already have over 30 vendors on board! Riders can purchase a 1, 3 or 7 day bus pass at a very reasonable rate and can “hop-on-hop-off” anytime. During the peak season the operating hours will be from 6am-11pm on weekdays and 6am-1am on the weekends. Our buses are of extremely high quality, safe and comfortable. The buses can accommodate a maximum of 100 people. We will be employing one licensed bus driver and one customer relations tour guide for each bus, which will ensure the passengers enjoy a safe and relaxing commute between destinations.

Gulf Coast Go intends to offer the service and knowledge a discerning traveler seeks while in the Destin/30-A area whether here on leisure or business. The fleet of buses and trolleys shall be very well maintained and designed with the highest levels of customer standards and expectations. With our fleet of double decker buses and our smaller shuttles we will be able to greatly impact the traffic and parking problems in both Walton and Okaloosa counties. Our goal is to repair the increasing lack of parking and the traffic in both Okaloosa and Walton county.
