For the past seven years, the SunVenture I has been offering daily summer cruises from the Destin Harbor to Crab Island, Dolphin Sunset Cruises, Private Cruises and Destin Harbor Fireworks Cruises.

About our Destin Cruises on the SunVenture I

Experience the difference. Destin cruises on the SunVenture I are truly different because we offer a more personalized, intimate atmosphere where guests are within arms reach of the water and get the closest views of the Destin waters and wildlife. Our captains offer a unique experience on our Destin cruises as well, making customer service and fond memories their priority. In addition to educating and entertaining, our captains will go above and beyond to make sure everyone has an unforgettable cruise experience, even giving guests and kids an opportunity to drive the boat. 

Your SunVenture I experience begins with an entertaining and historical account of the amazing Destin Harbor. Enjoy a leisure cruise through the Destin Harbor waters as you learn some interesting facts (past and present) about the World’s Luckiest Fishing Village. Guests can expect a personal tour as our captains make you feel like family in a relaxed setting.

For our Crab Island Destin Cruises, guests will enjoy a short cruise through the Destin Harbor and under the Destin bride to this underwater playground. Our captains will navigate the busy waters while you relax and enjoy the views. The SunVenture I will anchor in the middle of all the action at Crab Island and stay with you the entire time. Our captains will be available to help you on and off the boat with our drop down ladder and you have full access to a restroom, your cooler and shade the entire time.

Our Destin Dolphin and Sunset Cruises and our Destin Harbor Fireworks, Sunset, Dolphin Cruises are just as memorable and interactive. The SunVenture I captains will take you on a quest to find dolphins that will be within arm’s reach and make for some great pictures. Our captains know the perfect spots for you to experience unlimited views of the sun setting over the Destin bridge and Destin Harbor. They also know where the best seats are on the water for the Destin Harbor Fireworks show every Thursday night.

Destin private cruises on the SunVenture are easier and more affordable than renting a boat in Destin Florida. We can host Destin private cruises for up to 49 guests and we can bring over the SunVenture II for a total of 98 guests for private cruises. Private cruises are available at a fraction of the price of renting a pontoon boat in Destin Florida or any other boat rentals. Plus our captains do the driving through the busy waters of Destin while you relax and have fun in the sun.

“No worries cruise to Crab Island! The catamaran ride from the Destin Harbor to Crab Island was amazing! Boat Capt. Larry took very good care of us!”


“SunVenture Cruises in Destin was awesome! The captain drove us around the Destin Harbor and into the Gulf of Mexico to see dolphins. They positioned the boat to allow sunset photos to be taken. The kids and ladies on board got to drive the boat. The boat was a large catamaran which allowed us to move around freely during the ride. That was awesome as we could get great photos of the scenery and each other during the trip. You can bring a cooler and your own snacks on board. We all enjoyed ourselves and it was a great way to end our trip to Destin. Highly recommended!”


“Dolphin/ Sunset Cruise in Destin. My group of 8 was thrilled with our experience with this Destin cruise. First of all, the crew was very informative and answered all our questions and gave us a lot of background information about the history of the Destin harbor. Also, we were surprised with many dolphin sightings and antics probably within 10 minutes of starting our cruise. The dolphins came close to our boat swimming along side of us as well as performed their many jumps and dives for a spectacular show! In addition, the catamaran style boat made the trip more smooth than some of the other style boats. The crew was fun and safe and ensured we all had a great time. Lastly, their timing of the sunset was perfect. It was the perfect ending to our trip to Destin! I would definitely do this trip again.”
