Crab Island for Memorial Day Weekend 2019
It’s the weekend that all locals and visitors to Destin Florida look forward to every year. Memorial Day weekend in Destin Florida is the glorious start to another fun summer season on the Emerald Coast. And if the current condition of Crab Island is any indication of what this summer is going to be like – it’s going to be amazing! Crab Island is glistening with sparkling emerald green waters similar to the Caribbean waters. Picture yourself here for the most memorable experience of the weekend!
Crab Island is one of the top things to do in Destin Florida for Memorial Day weekend and all summer long. Go where the locals go to relax in pristine, waist deep emerald green waters, leisurely float around, paddle board or jump on the inflatables. You can only get to Crab Island by boat and it can be a stressful process to navigate a boat through the busy waters on Memorial Day weekend. SunVenture Cruises now has two boats taking daily trips to Crab Island from the Destin Harbor and Okaloosa Island. Don’t miss the boat on the safest, fastest, most affordable and most convenient way to get to Crab Island in Destin. Here are the top reasons to cruise with SunVenture Cruises to Crab Island this Memorial Day weekend.
The Stress-free Way to Get To Crab Island
Who wants stress on their three-day weekend? Memorial Day weekend in Destin Florida is all about relaxing and enjoying your time away from the daily stresses of life. Driving or renting a pontoon boat to get to Crab Island is a stressful process from the beginning to the end. SunVenture Cruises is the best way to get to Crab Island as our captain drives the boat, navigates the busy waters and drops anchor at the epicenter of all the fun. Our boat stays the entire time and our deckhands are at your service to help you on and off the boat. Enjoy our three or four hour Crab Island cruises throughout the Memorial Day weekend.
Most Convenient Cruise to Crab Island
One of the many reasons that makes SunVenture Cruises the best way to get out to Crab Island is having a restroom on-board our boats. During our Crab Island Cruises, our boat stays the entire time, giving you full access to a restroom, a large shaded area and your cooler. You are welcome to get on and off the boat at your leisure and convenience throughout your entire stay at Crab Island. You can also enjoy the convenience of taking a Crab Island cruise from two locations – either from the Destin Harbor or at our new location five miles away at Okaloosa Island. If you can’t find availability at one of our locations, you can check the other location’s availability, just a few miles away.
Save Money and Time
Taking a SunVenture Cruise is way more affordable than renting a pontoon boat to go to Crab Island. A Crab Island cruise on the SunVenture costs a fraction of the price of renting a pontoon boat, plus we do all the work so it saves you time and stress. You simply board and let us do the work while you relax and have fun in the sun. Our Coast-guard licensed captains know the fastest and safest way to get to Crab Island and the best spot to anchor so you can have the ultimate experience. Now that’s a perfect Memorial Day weekend in Destin Florida.
Check out our daily Crab Island cruise schedule and conveniently reserve online today. Because our Crab Island cruises are so popular, we tend to sell out so the sooner you reserve for Memorial Day weekend in Destin Florida the better. Remember to check both location’s availability to find the right Crab Island cruise for you.
If you’re up for another ad”venture”, check out our daily evening Sunset Dolphin Cruises from Destin or Okaloosa Island. Our captains provide a fun, entertaining and educational tour of the local waters as they go on a quest to find dolphins and cruise into the iconic sunset.
Feel free to contact us with any questions! Happy Memorial Day weekend!
