Private Cruises from Destin & Okaloosa Island

Private Cruises for up to 98 guests

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? SunVenture Cruises 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. Our private cruises from Destin and Okaloosa Island are perfect for any occasion – whether it’s a private sunset cruise for a family reunion or a bachelorette party out on Crab Island. You bring the fun and our event planners will do the rest, including catered food. 

Private cruises aboard the SunVenture are a great alternative to boat and pontoon rentals. Both of our boats together can host up to 98 guests for any type of cruise, including Crab Island cruises, Dolphin tours, Sunset Cruises, Night Cruises, and Destin Harbor Dolphin Tours. Our catamarans feature state-of-the-art sound systems, shaded areas, restroom on board and open deck arrangements that are great for relaxing in the sun or dancing under the stars.

SunVenture Cruises offers year-round Private Cruises from two locations – the Destin Harbor and Okaloosa Island.



“Last weekend my friends and I went to Destin, FL for my best friend’s bachelorette trip and wanted to go to Crab Island. The maid of honor had experienced SunVenture cruises and had nothing but great things to say about them so we decided to go with them again for that weekend and it was a great time!!! The crew was entertaining and amazing, It’s a spacious boat with a bathroom on board which was convenient. You can bring your food and drinks on board and they will help you with it if you need it, and most of all they are great at taking group photos when you are in the water!!!!”


“Birthday Celebration – We were in Destin to celebrate our birthdays and to just have a girls weekend getaway and decided to try out the Dolphin Cruise and it was amazing!! It was everything we was looking forward to and more!! Grant was very hospitable and overall fun! Larry was an amazing captain, very fun, informative, and seemed like he really loved his job!! I even got a picture with Larry (he’s such a good sport)! Will definitely recommend these Destin Cruises to others!!”


“Family Reunion – We had 45 members of our family reunion in Destin on board with Captain Larry and First mate Mark to see dolphins and the sunset. Both Captain Larry and First Mate Mark were personable and entertaining. They also were very concerned with safety and made sure we held on when maneuvering. We did see dolphins thanks to the navigating and hard work of Captain Larry and other boat captains in the area. There were a lot of dolphins out during our cruise and Captain Larry and First Mate Mark made sure we saw them all. All of us had great time on board and decided this was something we’d definitely do again. I would recommend this Destin cruise to anyone wanting to do something inexpensive and fun.”
