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. Docked a half mile east of the Destin Bridge, SunVenture’s new home is Heron Harbor Boardwalk right in the epicenter of water sport fun.
It’s also easier than ever to book a cruise through the new online reservation system. Just select your date and time and enter your payment information through our secure system. You will receive a confirmation email with your boarding pass that you can print out or show from your phone when you check in at the SunVenture kiosk on the boardwalk.
So what ad’venture’ are you up for? Dolphin cruises are scheduled from mid-morning to evening sunset times. This 1 1/2 hour tour cruises through the Destin Harbor and Gulf of Mexico for the closest view of the dolphins you will experience.
Next month, we begin a fun Destin summer tradition. Our Coast Guard-licensed captains take the wheel on the daily Crab Island Cruises and let you enjoy a worry-free day on the water. We’re kicking up the fun a notch with stand-up paddle boards and kayaks that you can rent once we anchor in the waist-deep, emerald green waters. This 3 1/2 hour cruise also offers lunch options for $10/pp that include wraps, drinks and chips. Seriously the best and safest way to enjoy Crab Island!
Private cruise options are also available for up to 49 people for any occasion from casual brunches, private cruises to Crab Island and fun bachelor/bachelorette parties to wedding receptions. Catering menus and event planners available to make your day complete.
Whatever your ad’venture’, get on the water and make it happen on the SunVenture. View our 2014 Destin Cruises schedule and book online here.
Captain Rick and the SunVenture team have had a blast cruising the water with visitors to explore Destin’s history and play with the dolphins. This spring has produced some breathtaking sunsets and some energetic dolphins.
Captain Rick figured out quickly how smart those dolphins are swimming close to the Lori Ann shrimp boat. If you want to see dolphins, there’s a good chance it will happen by following behind that shrimp boat as it cruises towards the Destin Harbor on SunVenture’s weekly dolphin and sunset cruises.
The warmer weather is also bringing back the fun crowds to Crab Island. Each Sunday, the SunVenture ‘ventures’ out there for a six hour excursion of playing and relaxing in the waist deep emerald green waters.
Don’t just hear about it…experience it. Check out our weekly cruise schedule and get on the water!
Can you tell that our SunVenture crew is excited about spring? Captain Rick hit the waters this week in the SunVenture Catamaran to kick off spring break in style.
On this first week, our guests had the chance to interact and get up close with 6 dolphins playing in the emerald green waters. We made lasting memories with many people, including Ms. Sara and Ms. Sofie of St. Louis.
And check out this amazing sunset on the SunVenture’s first dolphin cruise this week. They are only going to get better as we get further into the spring and summer seasons. We are cruising every Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday for our 2 hour narrated eco-dolphin and sunset cruises. And our Crab Island excursions kick off on Sunday, March 31st! Don’t miss out on the most amazing Destin Florida experience aboard the SunVenture.

The Travel Channel has just confirmed what loyal visitors and residents have known for many years. Last week, Destin Florida was voted as the #1 Family Beach, earning the popular vote over the Bahamas, Cape Cod and other beach destinations.
So what makes Destin so special? This area isn’t called the crown jewel of the South for nothing. One glimpse of the panoramic view coming over the Destin Harbor is just the beginning – from the sparkling emerald green waters to the soft white sand dunes and flurry of activity. But they don’t stop there…continue on to the Beaches of South Walton and the string of beach communities down 30a for an authentic experience of culture, food, shopping and more.
The family friendly activities are endless, unique and memorable. As cited by the Travel Channel, a must-do in Destin Florida beyond the beach is getting on the water, especially dolphin cruises and Crab Island. Prior to last year, you had to drive to the Destin Harbor to jump on a dolphin or Crab Island cruise which means hours of precious time lost in traffic. The SunVenture has received a warm welcome from the community as the first family cruise excursion docked east of the Destin Harbor so you can cruise, not drive, to top Destin Florida attractions.
Docked at the Sandestin resort, the 45 foot SunVenture catamaran is the easiest and best way to cruise to see dolphins and Crab Island. SunVenture’s entertaining and knowledgeable captains will do the driving while you have fun. Relax as you enjoy a 2 hour narrated dolphin cruise to interact with sea life, learn about Destin Florida’s eco-system and cruise into a stunning sunset. We’re cruising the waters several times each week during Spring Break 2013.
So whether you’re planning your Spring Break agenda or a summer beach trip, it’s worth the trip to Destin Florida and it’s worth your time to ‘venture’ aboard the SunVenture.
Spring is around the corner but it seems like many have been busy for weeks making plans to visit Destin Florida this spring break. And who can blame them! We crossed the Destin bridge this weekend and already saw signs of spring with the infamous Crab Island nestled under the crystal clear, emerald green waters.
Hitting the beach and sinking your toes in the white sand is a definite priority on your Destin spring break. But after a few days, you might be wondering what to do in Destin beyond the beach? Boating, dolphins and Crab Island should be on your list for the ultimate Destin Florida experience.
This will be SunVenture’s first spring break – giving everyone a new family cruise option in South Walton. Before, you had to spend precious time in gridlock traffic into Destin to jump on a boat. Now, you can head to the Sandestin resort, park the car and let our captains do the driving while you cruise the waters and have fun. From narrated Destin dolphin and sunset cruises to Crab Island Destin cruises, the SunVenture is the best way to get on the water to cruise to top Destin attractions.
