The peak summer season is over but the good times on the water continue for us. Fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year to visit Destin Florida as the humidity subsides, crowds lessen and the butterflies migrate through the crisp air. It’s truly a majestic time that only gets better when you are on the water.
Although our daily dolphin and Crab Island schedules are on hiatus until next spring, the SunVenture is still available through October for private cruises in Destin for up to 49 people. If you’re celebrating any type of occasion in Destin, why not give your guests any experience they will never forget on the emerald green waters?
Hosting up to 49 guests, the 45-foot SunVenture I Catamaran, with a state-of-the art sound system & open deck, is ideal for any private cruise including Dolphin Cruise birthday parties in Destin & bachelor/bachelorette parties. Can you imagine the look on your child’s and their friends’ face as they cruise the waters and enjoy an up-close and personal encounter with dolphins?
If you’re looking for a difference experience on the water, check out our sister yacht, the 125′ SOLARIS, that cruises weekly for dinner and sunset cruises. Docked at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, the SOLARIS boasts three decks of indoor and outdoor fun, complete with a 3-course chef, prepared meal and live entertainment.
Labor Day is the unofficial last weekend of the summer as the sun sets on a memory-filled season of fun in the sun in Destin Florida. How are you going to celebrate?
There’s no better way to celebrate Labor Day in Destin Florida than on the water. For some fun in the sun, ‘venture’ over to the Destin Harbor. The 45-foot sporty SunVenture catamaran cruises from the emerald green waters of the Destin Harbor for dolphin sunset cruises, Crab Island excursions and private cruises.
Here are 3 ways to cruise through Labor Day on the water:
1. Crab Island – If you’ve never been to Crab Island, you’re missing out on the Labor Day party of the year on the water. Our captains will drive you out to the shallow sandbar at the Destin bridge so you can enjoy a safe and worry-free day of playing and relaxing in the shallow waters. Join us for our Labor Day Crab Island excursions on Sat, 8/30 or Sun, 8/31.
2. Fireworks Harbor Cruise – For one of the most memorable things to do in Destin, venture aboard the SunVenture for a 1-hour narrated cruise that explores the beautiful Destin Harbor and ends with a BANG! Experience a magical night as the harbor illuminates with a spectacular Destin fireworks show. The SunVenture will also be cruising through the Harbor on Sun, 8/31 for a Labor Day Fireworks Show at 8:30 pm.
3. Dinner, Sunset & Fireworks Cruise – It doesn’t get much better than indulging in fresh local seafood while cruising into the sunset on the beautiful local waters. The 125′ SOLARIS yacht is cruising Wednesday through Sunday of Labor Day weekend with nightly dinner and sunset cruises. The fine dining menu is prepared on board by our executive chefs, featuring everything from steaks and seafood to special appetizers such as Wahoo Ceviche Luge Gazpacho Shooters and a Trio of Seafood Ceviche. The value is incredible considering a 3-course meal, sunset cruise and live entertainment while you dance under the stars and on the water.
If you really want to go all out, join the SOLARIS on our sunset & dinner cruises on Thursday, 8/28 or Sunday, 8/31. You’ll end your night with a bang with the best seat in the house for the Sandestin Fireworks show. This is an even more incredible value as there is no additional charge for the Fireworks & Dinner cruise.
The new spring season is bringing exciting new changes for SunVenture Cruises. The sporty 45-foot, Guy-inspired Catamaran has relocated to the crown jewel of Destin – the Destin Harbor.

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.
Our regular cruise schedule is dwindling down as well but Captain Rick is always looking for an excuse to get on the water. The SunVenture is available throughout the fall for any private cruises for up to 49 people. We can accommodate anything from catering to Crab Island excursions. Just ask and we can make it happen.
Many of our guests have found that the SunVenture makes for a fun, unique ‘venture’ for anything from corporate retreats, activities during business conferences, girls’ weekends and more.
If you are fortunate enough to visit Destin Florida in the fall, give us shout and we’ll help you cruise through a memorable fall ‘venture’ in Destin.
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!
The SunVenture can host up to 49 people for any private charter to see the dolphins, sunset, Crab Island or anywhere else along the local waters.
Life is short….live it up worry free on the SunVenture!
For a lot of people, Labor Day means two things: a day off and the end of summer. But why is it called Labor Day? Labor Day is a day set aside to pay tribute to working men and women….that would be YOU!
Whether you work 9 – 5, 80 hours a week or 24/7 as a stay at home mom, you work hard and deserve to play hard. We all know there’s only one place in Destin Florida to relax this Labor Day weekend…..the one and only Crab Island.
You can truly take the weekend off by renting the boat AND the captain on the SunVenture. Captain Rick is ready to host you and hit the water as he navigates the seas and let’s you enjoy a safe day of cruising in the sun.
From private cruises for up to 49 to dolphin/sunset and Crab Island cruises, the SunVenture can make this a Labor Day in Destin Florida to remember. Join us!
