SunQuest Cruises offers visitors to Destin the opportunity to explore the Choctawhatchee Bay while enjoying a leisurely plated dinner, live music and and a full service bar aboard a luxurious yacht. Located at the Baytowne Marina, at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, reservations are always required before embarking on a cruise with SunQuest. Make reservations online at http://www.sunquestcruises.com/ or call 850-650-2519.
Upon boarding the yacht, guests are greeted by the Captain before being seated at their reserved table. Then drinks from the full service bar may be ordered, along with appetizers, before taking a walk to explore the boat. Live music is played through the duration of the cruise and begins the moment the ship leaves the dock. Songs range from Motown hits to current Top 40 tunes, and plenty of room is available for dancing.
Dinner service begins at a set time each cruise, and the meal starts off with fresh garden salad and hot bread with herbed butter. Each guest chooses an entree from a list of four. Those who prefer meat can choose cast-iron seared beef tenderloin with shallot red wine butter and herb-roasted potatoes, or pan-roasted free-range chicken breast topped with tomato-chutney vinaigrette and served with herb-roasted potatoes.
Seafood lovers will want to try the Gulf shrimp sauté atop creamy grits, served with smoked tomato butter and applewood bacon, or the fresh grilled Gulf fish topped with white wine and lemon butter, also served with grits.
All entrees come with the chef’s choice of seasonal vegetables, iced tea or coffee, and a chef’s choice dessert. After dessert, guests can continue to enjoy the live music as they dance, walk around the yacht, snap pictures of the sunset, or just sit together under the stars.
