Cruising Through September to Crab Island
We had an amazing summer season on the waters of Destin Florida filled with countless memories on our cruises. From awesome pictures on our Sunset Dolphin cruises to engagements on our Fireworks Harbor Cruises to fun-filled days at Crab Island, it was truly a summer to remember in Destin. We also had double the fun with the addition of our sister boat the SunVenture II from Okaloosa Island. Our guests enjoyed the convenience of the new location and having double the cruise options.
Summer might be “officially” over after Labor Day but in Destin the fun on the water continues. September is an extended summer month in Destin and a perfect time to get on the water.
