Dewey Destin

Dewey Destin

1835. The adventure began when Leonard Destin, his father, George, and his brother, William, set out from New London, Connecticut with three ships. Unfortunately, in 1835, after running into a hurricane near Cape Canaveral, Florida, two of the ships, and Leonard’s father and brother, were lost at sea. As Leonard continued on, he came upon the beautiful shores of what would now be called "Destin." Just like that, the world`s luckiest fishing village was born. The Destin family now honors Leonard`s love of the water by serving fresh, sustainable seafood in their family owned restaurants in three locations along the Gulf Coast including two in Destin and one in Navarre.
