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.

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

My boyfriend & I decided to go out on the Nathaniel Bowditch boat for a sunset cruise. Best decision of our Destin trip.The captain provided us with wine, cheese, fruits crackers and music. The wine and cheese were delicious.Not at all what we were expecting.These were premium wines & hand selected cheeses. The captain was so interesting and told us... More

We visit Destin every year and try to sail with Capt. Rex every time. We have been on both the day and evening sailing adventures and have never been disappointed. We always see dolphins on our sails and he allows my younger son to "steer" the boat at times. This is one of our most favorite outings in Destin. Once,... More

Every year for the last 10 years we've visited Destin, and an outing on the Nathaniel Bowditch is always one of the capstones of the trip. Captain Rex, his family, and his crew go out of their way to make my family feel welcome. My 3 daughters (4, 9, & 11) are excited about any opportunity to sail now, thanks... More

When my family and I started to look into boat tours, we were trying to be really cheap about it and considered doing the Sea Blaster due to the $24 price point. However, we are so glad we did the $40 tour on the Emerald Dancer, especially after seeing how crowded and cramped those Sea Blasters looked. The Emerald Dancer... More

My family and friends had a blast! Jessie, Tony and the Emerald Dancer exceeded our expectation and made this the high light of our trip. We got to snorkle and ride with the dolphins (including a baby dolphin) on the most unique boat in the harbor.
