Blessing of the Fleet

The 63rd annual Blessing of the Fleet will be held on the docks behind Brotula’s Restaurant in Destin on Ascension Day, May 21. Immanuel clergy will bless commercial fishing, safety and recreational vessels that make their living on the sea. The blessings will begin at 4 p.m. This year, for the safety of all, there will be no captain’s service or fish fry. Participants are encouraged to dine at local operating restaurants.

If you and your vessel make your living on the sea, register your watercraft by emailing your boat name, mailing address, email address, and phone number to or by calling the church at 850-837-6324.
