Crab Island Days are Here – let us take you!

SunQuest Cruises is pleased to announce that the SunVenture I Catamaran is kicking off the summer with additional cruise options from the Destin Harbor. The Coast-Guard licensed captains of the SunVenture I are now cruising seven days a week for Crab Island Excursions and Dolphin /Sunset Cruises. In addition, the SunVenture I is extending a new Destin Harbor Fireworks Cruise every Thursday evening for adults only.

“Our Destin locals and visitors enjoyed our chartered Crab Island and Dolphin cruises so much last year that we decided to extend our schedule this year to offer more convenient times,” stated James Murray, General Manager for SunQuest Cruises. “We’re also excited about our new Thursday night Destin Harbor Fireworks Cruise that is catered to adults and couples seeking a romantic night on the water.”

The 45-foot, Guy Harvey-inspired SunVenture I Catamaran offers a variety of memorable experiences on the water, with the Crab Island excursions being the most popular. Cruising daily at 12 p.m., the SunVenture I ‘ventures’ out for three-hour excursions to the world famous Crab Island. Guests enjoy a stress-free day as the Coast Guard licensed captains handle all the driving and drop anchor at the center of all the fun. Crab Island is an underwater playground with a shallow sandbar that offers an experience like no other, including relaxing in the waist-deep waters, live music, inflatable slides, paddle boarding and more. Rest rooms are available on-board the SunVenture I as well as shaded areas and paddleboard / kayak rentals.

Every Thursday in June at 7:30 p.m., the SunVenture I is reserved for adults seeking a magical and serene evening on the water with a Destin Harbor Fireworks cruise. This one and a half hour cruise explores the Destin Harbor at sunset and offers guests the best seat in the house for fireworks as the sky above them illuminates with bright colors.

The close proximity to the water and open-air deck offers SunVenture I guests the closest views of the dolphins on an hour and half educational sunset cruise. Cruising daily at 6:30 p.m., the eco-cruise begins with a narrated tour of the iconic Destin Harbor by the entertaining SunVenture I captains. Guests will cruise into the sunset, learn about the area’s history and enjoy dolphin sightings in the beautiful, emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

The SunVenture I is also available for private charters for up to 49 people. Guests can rent the boat and the captain for any occasion, including brunches, birthday parties, bachelor/bachelorette parties, corporate retreats and more. The state-of-the-art sound system and open deck arrangement offers a memorable celebration on the water. Event planners and catering packages are also available.

Cruising Through Fall Ventures

Summer 2013 is ‘unofficially’ over and we’re on the heels of another spectacular fall season. It truly is one of the best times of the year to visit for many reasons. Less humidity, lower rates, smaller crowds, less traffic, migrating butterflies….we could go on and on.

Life is too Short to Worry

Life is too Short to Worry

Last week, we talked about how you deserve to play as hard as you work. Hitting the water is one of the most popular ways to not only enjoy the Destin life, but a very relaxing way to spend time with family and friends. Relaxing, that is, for everyone who is NOT driving the boat.

You can rent the boat and the captain on the SunVenture. Sit back and relax while Captain Rick charters the waters, gives you an entertaining narrative of the Destin life and drops anchor at Crab Island. It’s a worry-free day on the water that everyone deserves. We’ll even bring food!

Life is short….live it up worry free on the SunVenture!
