Destin, Florida SOLARIS Cruises into Spring

The SOLARIS, a 125-foot yacht based in Destin, Florida, offers year round dinner and dancing cruises out of the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. Dinner cruises in Choctawhatchee Bay aboard SOLARIS are rated as one of the top things to do in Destin by Tripadvisor.

Food on board SOLARIS features fresh local Gulf seafood.

Operated by SunQuest Cruises, the yacht features three decks of indoor and outdoor spaces, including panoramic windows throughout the indoor dining rooms and the open-air sky deck. Menus on SOLARIS feature coastal cuisine emphasizing fresh local Gulf seafood. SunQuest Cruises have been recognized as one of the top seafood restaurants in Destin based on Tripadvisor reviews.

Cruises include a sunset view over Choctawhatchee Bay

Dinner cruises leave from Sandestin’s Baytowne Marina. Guests enjoy live music from the Reggae Fusion band Simply D’Vyne as SOLARIS literally cruises into the sunset. Dinner includes salad, a chef-prepared entree and dessert. After dinner, guests dance, visit the captain in the pilothouse, and stargaze on the sky deck.

SOLARIS is a favorite venue for onboard weddings.

Weddings onboard SOLARIS have earned the Knot’s Best of Weddings Award for the past nine consecutive years, along with the Knot’s Weddings Hall of Fame and Weddingwire’s Couple’s Choice Awards. SunQuest Cruises offers an all-inclusive wedding experience, including custom decor, flowers, catering, entertainment and rental needs, and can even assist with Destin beach weddings and offsite catering.

With the coming of Spring, SunQuest Cruises presents a choice of brunch or dinner Easter cruises aboard SOLARIS. Both cruises take place on Easter Sunday, March 31, and offer a way to avoid the crowds while enjoying Easter on the water. The brunch cruise features a 2.5 hour cruise, two-course brunch and unlimited views of Choctawhatchee Bay.  The sunset dinner cruise features a three-hour cruise on the Bay, a three-course dinner and live entertainment.
