SunQuest Cruises is pleased to announce that the SunVenture I Catamaran is now cruising daily from the Destin Harbor, offering a variety of unique water experiences. The 45-foot sporty catamaran’s new home is in the heart of the Destin Harbor at the Heron Harbor Boardwalk, located one mile east of the Destin Bridge. The SunVenture cruises daily for dolphin / sunset cruises, Crab Island excursions, Harbor Fireworks Cruises and private charters.

“The Harbor is the crown jewel of Destin and this new location offers our guests convenient access to all our emerald green waters have to offer,” said James Murray, general manager for SunQuest Cruises. “From picturesque views of the sunset descending over the Destin bridge to a quick and safe trip to Crab Island, the SunVenture is minutes away from every type of adventure on the water.”

In addition to a convenient new location, the SunVenture now offers an online reservation system at Guests can easily view daily cruise schedules and safely secure their reservations online at one convenient location.

Upon embarking on the SunVenture I, guests will be immersed in custom Guy-Harvey ocean-inspired artwork throughout the boat, indicative of the scenes they will experience on the water. Coast-guard licensed captains give patrons a narrated cruise through the harbor before heading out to the open waters.

The close proximity to the water and open-air sky deck offers SunVenture guests the closest views of the dolphins on an hour and half narrated and educational cruise. The flexible cruise schedule offers dolphin cruises mid-morning as well as during the beautiful sunset hours.

The most popular cruise option is SunVenture’s Crab Island excursions. Located at the Destin Bridge, Crab Island is a shallow sand bar where locals and visitors alike anchor their boats to play and relax in the pristine emerald green waters. SunVenture’s Coast-guard licensed captains charter the three and a half hour cruise so guests can enjoy a worry-free day on the water.

Every Thursday, the SunVenture sets out for a magical evening on its Harbor Fireworks cruise. This one hour cruise explores the Destin Harbor and offers guests the best seat in the house for fireworks as the sky above them illuminates with bright colors.

SunVenture’s private cruises offer the boat and the captain for any group up to 49 people. The catamaran features a state-of-the-art sound system, open deck, event planners and catering options. Many groups have taken their celebrations to the water for a memorable experience, including brunches, bachelor / bachelorette parties, birthdays and weddings.
