Your whole family will experience a sailing cruise that will be the highlight of your Destin vacation, 3 hours of sailing, dolphins, snorkeling, and sea shell safari. Bring your own beverages and picnic lunch. The Emerald Dancer is an ideal Dolphin Companion; you can lay in the netted area and watch the Dolphins race through the transparent Emerald Green waters, just a few feet below you.Cruising during the later part of the day allows you to enjoy the lazy, laidback atmosphere created by nature, soft breezes and sunset skies.

My husband and I sailed on the sunset cruise on our honeymoon in Destin and it was the highlight of our trip. The staff was friendly, we had a blast with the other passengers, and the view of the sunset was incomparable - not to mention the wine and cheese provided! Definitely recommend!

This was the highlight of our Destin experience. The crew (captain Jessie, and first mate Patrick) were so personable and accommodating. It was very refreshing to be in a quiet intimate adult-only environment. The choices of wine, cheese, and fruit were amazing. Due to the lack of similar quality options in the Destin area, we're even contemplating another voyage on... More

This outing was the perfect adventure for our wedding guests. They absolutely raved about it. The boat is beautiful and our 18 guests fit very comfortably with room to spare for moving about the deck. We are so glad we added the wine and cheese tasting - everyone was impressed with the unique selections. Not only did we get great... More

A beautiful 3 hour sunset sail. 9 choices of wines. 6 choices of cheese. Captain Rex and First Mate Patrick made it so much fun. Don't miss it.

My husband and I sailed the Sunset Wine and Cheese Cruise and had an amazing time. I had been wanting to ride on a sailboat for several years so my husband called and reserved us a spot from our beach chairs! Our trip with Captain Rex & First Mate Chris was both fun and relaxing. They were both experienced sailors... More
