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.
