Real Estate

I am incredibly proud and honored to be a coordinator for the 8th Annual Soldiers on the Water hosted by the Emerald Coast Association of REALTORS®.

When: September 19th, 2021

Where: Brotula’s, 210D Harbor Blvd, Destin

What is Soldiers on the Water?

Soldiers on the Water is an event designed to give combat-wounded soldiers, airmen, sailors, marines, and gold star children a day on the water to show our gratitude for their service and sacrifice. We provide world-class fishing not only to recognize their service but to promote healing and wellness through a day of camaraderie that stems from a shared passion for fishing.

We will provide all participants with a light breakfast during registration, and then the boats will promptly leave at 8am. Following the excursion, our participants will be treated to a late lunch at Brotula’s while the tournament winners are announced.

We will provide food, equipment, and licensing. If you would like to bring some of your catches home with you, please bring a cooler as our supplies may be limited.

Due to the nature of this event, there may be times it will be challenging to remain socially distanced. Please keep this in mind before registering.

How Soldiers on the Water has Grown

In 2013, Soldiers on the Water was able to serve 35 military members in this event. Since then, we have expanded to over 100 and hope to host 125 this year! If you would like to register for this year’s Soldiers on the Water, please CLICK  HERE!!  

From a Participant:

“I just wanted to thank you, and especially commend you are your dedicated staff, for hosting this event. I am an army purple heart recipient from Vietnam 1968, and my “Thank you for your service’ moments have been sparse to say the least. Your recognition of the warriors on the water today was awesome. Great event, well organized, and excellent goodie bags. The awards portion afterwards was perfect as well. You have made my day. Thank you and ECAR for our great and appreciative day.”
