Cruising Through A Memorable Thanksgiving

What are you thankful for? We’re thankful that each week, we have the opportunity to create lifelong memories with our guests. The memories are endless, from breathtaking weddings to engagements to celebrations on the dance floor – they have all happened on the SOLARIS. Thank you for letting us be apart!
 
One of our favorite past times is our Thanksgiving Cruise as we welcome families to embark on a relaxing day of spending quality time together while our chefs cook and you cruise the beautiful local waters. Our chefs are preparing a lavish Thanksgiving Buffet with Garlic and Herb Roasted Turkey, Maple Ham and even a Cajun twist with a Shrimp & Andouille Jambalaya. Paired with gourmet sides and dessert, this is one meal you’ll be thankful for.
 
If you’re spending Thanksgiving in Destin Florida, make the most of it, skip the restaurants and cruise with us. This popular cruise sells out every year. Make your reservation online or call us at 850.650.2519.

We’re Giving Back to Our Local Heroes

Next Wednesday, we are partnering with Hook & Ladder Winery from Sonoma for a Wine & Dinner Cruise. The background behind their name goes back to Cecil De Loach who was a firefighter in San Francisco while also helping establish the Russian River Valley as one of California’s most famed grape growing regions.
 
This story has inspired us to give back to our local firefighters at the South Walton Fire District. In addition to a raffle that night to collect donations, SunQuest is donating $1 for every new ‘like’ to our Facebook page back to the South Walton Fire District.

Wine & Dine Cruise with Hook & Ladder Winery’s Michael De Loach

SunQuest Cruises is beginning the harvest season with a rustic-themed wine maker’s dinner cruise featuring Michael DeLoach of Hook & Ladder Winery in Sonoma, California.
 
While fighting fires and rescuing San Franciscans for 16 years, Cecil De Loch was also helping establish the Russian River Valley as one of California’s most famed grape growing regions. The name of his new winery is a tribute to his days on the engine and a showcase for the 400 acres of Russian River Valley vineyards he farms. A number of different quality wines are produced under the Hook & Ladder label.
 
Hook & Ladder is a family project with Cecil’s son Michael De Loach taking the reigns as President and Director of Sales. Michael started working in the vineyard at age 11 and in the cellar at 15. Michael hosts “Wine Country Live”, a live nationally syndicated radio show and has been featured in prominent media outlets to include Newsweek, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, the LA times and more.
 
We are honored to have Michael De Loach joining us on Wednesday, November 6th from 7 – 10 pm for an Autumn Harvest Dinner Cruise. Guests will start on the open air, sky deck with passed hors d’oeurves (from barbeque Gulf shrimp to bacon stuffed mushroom caps) while mingling with Michael and enjoying a Cabernet blend. The culinary delights continue throughout the night with four additional courses paired with exquisite wines.
 
The cost for the 3-hour cruise, dinner, wines & entertainment is $95/guest. Seating is limited to 75 guests and reservations can only be made by calling 850.650.2519.
