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.

Wonderful excursion with Captain Josh and First Mate Tony. Great selection of wines and specialty cheeses and fruit. Dolphins swam alongside us for a bit. Got to assist with raising sails. Relaxing, beautiful and romantic.

We loved our sailing adventure on the Nathaniel Bowditch with Captain Josh! This is a can't miss date night for anyone that enjoys wine and cheese. We'll definitely be back again and may try the family excursion with our young boys next year.
