Read on below for additional information on booking a Fort Walton Beach dinner cruise!
Savor Your Food with a View On These Fort Walton Beach Cruises
From sailing schooners to enormous yachts, there are a variety of options for your dinner cruise adventure in Fort Walton Beach.
Pair a gorgeous sunset view with delectable pairings of wine and cheese aboard the gaff rig sailing schooner operated by Nathanial Bowditch Sailing. Under the guidance of Captain Rex and his mates, the Nathaniel Bowditch schooner sets sail from Destin and offers you and your guests the chance to enjoy bubbly champagne, tasty cheeses, and even the occasional dolphin sighting against the backdrop of a gorgeous sunset.
Enjoy fine dining, drinking, and dancing aboard the Solaris, a 125-foot yacht operated by SunQuest Cruises with three decks of indoor and outdoor areas. Gaze out at awe inspiring sunset views from the expansive, panoramic windows within the interior dining rooms or the open air sky deck. This Fort Walton Beach cruise is a popular choice for special occasions, even serving as a wedding venue on request.
Alternatively, if your idea of a dinner cruise is more laidback by definition (i.e. snacks and drinks available during a sunset cruise), there are a number of providers you can check out, including Buccaneer Pirate Cruises, Southern Star Dolphin Cruises, and Destin Excursions. The first two companies provide snacks and drinks onboard, while the third has ice and coolers for your food and drinks.
What to Know Before You Go
SunQuest Cruises in particular offers 3-hour cruises along the waters of Sandestin, as well as special event cruises such as their New Year’s Eve fireworks, dinner, and dancing cruise. They also have a resort casual dress code and begin boarding 45 minutes prior to departure.
Most dinner cruise providers will require you to arrive at least 30 minutes before the ship debarks. Cruises can take you along the waters of the gulf or within Choctawhatchee Bay.
