Labor Day in Destin Fla | Get on the Water

It’s been a record-breaking summer of fun aboard the SunVenture, as thousands ‘ventured’ with us for Crab Island excursions, Harbor Fireworks Cruises and Dolphin Cruises. They say time flies when you’re having fun and that has certainly been the case this summer in Destin.

Labor Day is the last “hurrah!” of summer as we say goodbye to the dog days of heat and “hello” to cooler weather and regular routines. So how are you going to end on a memorable note?

Cruise through Labor Day in Destin Florida on the water, aboard the SunVenture. Our captains are gearing up for one more fun-filled weekend on the water.

There’s no other place to be than Crab Island this Labor Day in Destin. 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. Crab Island is only accessible by boat – let our captains take you for relaxing day on the water.

The fun begins the week leading up to Labor Day in Destin, as the SunVenture cruises daily to Crab Island at 11am starting Monday, August 31st. We’re starting the party earlier on Saturday and Sunday with 10am cruises to Crab Island.

For a more relaxing experience, enjoy a memorable sunset and dolphin cruise of the Destin Harbor. Watch the sun descend over the picturesque Destin bridge and watch the dolphins swimming in the emerald green waters. Cruising Monday 8/31 and all Labor Day weekend at 6:30 pm.

Memorial Day Weekend in Destin Fla | SunVenture Cruises

Memorial Day weekend in Destin Florida is the official kick off to the summer season and what better way to celebrate than on the water. The SunVenture’s new home on the Destin Harbor put this water lovers boat in the heart of all the action, providing a number of different water ad’ventures’.

The only way to truly celebrate Memorial Day in Destin is a Crab Island, situated just a few minutes boat ride from the Destin Harbor.

With crystal clear water, this is the ultimate spot to anchor the boat and have some summer fun in the waist-deep waters. Our captains will charter you out there for a worry-free day in the sun as you mingle with the locals. The SunVenture also offers lunch options for this 6-hour Crab Island excursion as well as kayak and paddleboard rentals to enjoy on the water.

Some people say that the dolphins are the good will ambassadors for the Emerald Coast. While cruising the waterways on our narrated Eco-Dolphin cruises, you will have a really good chance to observe dolphins playing and feeding in their natural habitat. It is an exciting and memorable experience to share with your entire family during your beach vacation in Destin. Eco-dolphin cruises are available daily ranging in times from mid-morning to evening / sunset cruises.

Our eco-dolphin / sunset cruise gives you a front row seat for the best place in Destin to experience one of nature’s most breathtaking sunset views. As you cruise the Destin Harbor, you’ll watch the sun descend under the Destin bridge and the sparkling emerald green waters.

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!
