Those looking to depart on a one-of-a-kind boat tour out of the heart of Destin will find everything they’re looking for and more when they book a tour with Sunset Venture Cruises. This company is located right at Destin Harbor and has been offering up customized Crab Island adventures since opening its doors (and boats) to the public in 2012. Sunset Venture Cruises is a summertime company that specializes in transporting guests between Destin Harbor and exciting Crab Island! Of course, if a dolphin cruise, sunset adventure, private sail, or fireworks experience is more your style, they’re happy to book that for you as well.
When you book a Crab Island tour with Sunset Venture Cruises, you’ll be boarding a luxurious and welcoming 45-foot vessel that can easily accommodate up to 49 passengers at a time. This spacious catamaran offers up versatile seating options, but no matter where you settle in, you can count on a spectacular view the entire way to Crab Island. These personalized cruises come complete with a state-of-the-art sound system onboard so you can easily hear your knowledgeable captain share area insight as you sail and perhaps even point out interesting sights along the way! These cruises are ideal for the entire family and promise to be a highlight of your journey.
Your journey with Sunset Venture Cruises promises to be as informative as it is fun.

Once you reach Crab Island, the vessel will be securely anchored so guests can enjoy time in this unique setting, mixing and mingling with friends, family, and fellow travelers!
A huge benefit of booking a cruise of this type is that there’s never a need to worry or stress about transportation, direction, or missing out on amazing sights because you’re focused on the journey. Instead, you can sit back, relax, enjoy luxurious surroundings, and let your experienced captain and crew handle the rest.
Those who book a mid-morning departure with Sunset Venture Cruises will enjoy a three-hour island cruise while those looking for even more in the way of fun will want to purchase tickets for an early-afternoon departure where cruises are extended to four hours.
