From all the rave reviews we’ve received this year, it seems like one of the highlights of Destin beach vacations is a cruise on the SunVenture. With its versatile open air arrangement, the SunVenture offers so many ways to have fun on the water. A great alternative to the larger Destin cruises, the SunVenture offers a more personal, relaxed setting for families and friends.
Here are the top 5 ways to enjoy a SunVenture cruise:
1. Crab Island – We are cruising twice daily to one of the most unique water experiences. Ranging in depths from 2 to 10 feet, the underwater sandbar known as Crab Island is the place where everyone anchors their boats and spends a day in the waist-deep emerald green waters. With picturesque views of the Destin bridge, Crab Island offers everything from live music and water slides to floating food vendors, paddle boarding and relaxing in the water.
Pack a cooler and jump aboard as our Coast-Guard licensed captains take you for a narrated tour of the harbor and drop anchor at Crab Island. The boat stays with you the entire time, offers a restroom on-board and is much cheaper and convenient then renting your own boat.
Here’s a June 2016 review: “”Crab Island was absolutely beautiful and there was so much to do! The boat was great and the crew was very friendly and very funny. They kept you entertained! Once you arrive, you get off the boat and just walk or swim around. The waters are waist deep and you can walk around to different activities such as jet skis, paddleboards, kayaks, banana boats, etc. There are different restaurants to eat from and also a big inflatable playground. It was so much fun for myself and the children. Thanks Sunventure 1!!!”
2. Sunset Dolphin Cruises – It doesn’t get much better than cruising into the sunset as dolphins are frolicking from the emerald green waters of Destin Florida. We’re cruising every evening at 6:30 pm with our Captains Larry and Joe whose goal is to keep you laughing and entertained throughout the cruise.
Here’s a July 2016 review: “We joined Captain Larry and Joe out for the 10am Crab Island cruise. The guys were so much fun and Crab Island was a blast. We enjoyed the trip so much that we decided to book the 2pm cruise and the dolphin sunset cruise for the same day. We saw a ton of dolphins on the evening cruise and one came right up next to the boat. I would highly recommend Sunventure I for any of their cruises. Larry and Joe made our day on the water. They are great guys and tons of fun.”
“This was our last adventure during our vacation there and we enjoyed the sunset cruise very much. We were able to see four dolphins and the sunset was beautiful. Grant and the captain (I feel bad for forgetting his name) made it fun and had a great sense of humor adding to the enjoyment. We were glad to be on this boat and not the overly crowded boats so we could still fully enjoy the beauty without the feel of a booze cruise. Thanks for making our trip to Destin, Florida memorable!”
3. Fireworks Adult Cruises – who says fireworks are just for holidays? In Destin, you can enjoy the Fireworks every Thursday night from the Destin Harbor. Life is all about family but if you’re looking for a break, then consider our adults only Fireworks Cruises.
Here’s a July 2016 review: “We have been on several sunset cruises, but, this fourth of July sunset/fireworks was absolutely the BEST!!! Larry and Joe were funny, knowledgeable, and just overall fun. While we didn’t know what to expect it did not disappoint. We will definitely be back aboard and if you are looking for fun-check this out. You won’t be sorry!”
4. Birthdays – Destin cruises are the ultimate way to celebrate any occasion – from birthdays to bachelor / bachelorette parties or family reunions. Our captains can take you to Crab Island, a sunset dolphin cruise or anything else you are interested in. We also have event planners and food catering options.
Here’s a July 2016 review: “The SunVenture captain and crew was amazing. This was my first time to destin and crab island. The trip was for my birthday and it was the best time ever. I can not wait to go back. This is a must for all ages to try at least once. Very kid and adult friendly place to go.”
5. Private cruises– We can arrange for private cruises year-round, any day of the week, any time for any occasion. Boating is all about having fun in the sun and water. So why would you want to worry about fueling up the boat and driving while you watch your friends have fun? The SunVenture offers the best of both worlds…a private boat that our Coast Guard-licensed captains will drive so you can enjoy a worry-free day of fun in the sun.
The SunVenture I is perfect for Destin private cruises and boat rentals for up to 49 guests. The 45-foot Catamaran features a state-of-the-art sound system and the open deck arrangement is great for relaxing in the sun or dancing under the stars.
““Our sunset cruise on the Sunventure was a wonderful time. The boat is painted in such awesome underwater scenes and the crew was so nice. Definitely doing this again when we come back into town!”

Dolphin Cruises and Crab Island Cruises in Destin for Memorial Day Weekend
There’s no other way to celebrate Memorial Day weekend in Destin Florida than on the water at the legendary Crab Island and on sunset dolphin cruises. The 45-foot SunVenture is cruising daily from the Destin Harbor for daily chartered cruises to Crab Island as well as sunset Dolphin Cruises.
If you aren’t familiar with Crab Island in Destin Florida, you are missing out on one of the most amazing and authentic Emerald Coast experiences around. Crab Island is a shallow sand bar located just north of the iconic Destin Bridge. If you happen to cross the Destin
Bridge over the spring and summer, you’re sure to see a majestic view of boats anchored on the sandbar and people relaxing and playing in the waist-deep, emerald green waters.
Crab Island was actually an island before the ocean currents washed part of it away. Now it’s a floating playground that has become a nationally-recognized destination attraction.
Crab Island is a summer tradition for locals and visitors alike as the ultimate way to celebrate fun in the sun and on the water but you can only get out there on a boat. It’s easy to have too much fun in the sun which makes the SunVenture the best way to get out to Crab Island.
Our Coast-guard licensed captains will take you out to Crab Island from our convenient new location at the Destin Harbor and drop anchor for 3 hours. We’ll drop the ladder and you can jump into the waist-deep waters. You’ll find a little bit of everything at Crab Island from floating bars and restaurants to people kayaking, snorkeling, paddle boarding or just relaxing on a float.
If you’re trying to find things to do in Destin Florida beyond the beach, get ON the water and venture aboard the SunVenture I for a Destin dolphin cruise experience like no other. The Guy Harvey-inspired Catamaran keeps you within arms reach of the crystal clear waters and the closest seat in the house to see the dolphins up close while sailing into the picturesque sunset.
The SunVenture’s 1.5- hour narrated sunset and dolphin cruise explores the beautiful Harbor and Gulf of Mexico as you revel in the Crown Jewel of Destin Florida. Destin dolphin cruises are narrated by our entertaining Coast-Guard licensed captain through the Destin Harbor as you cruise the emerald green waters to the Destin bridge and into the sunset. Kids can captain the boat and the open air catamaran offers the most up close and personal view of the water and dolphins. All seats offer the best views in this relaxing, personal setting.
Check our daily Destin cruise schedule for Crab Island and sunset dolphin cruises and book online today. Crab Island cruise times vary from mid-morning to mid-day and sunset dolphin cruises are at 6:30 pm daily.
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.
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!
