Top 5 Ways to Experience a SOLARIS Cruise
 
The SOLARIS yacht cruises year-round from the Baytowne Marina at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. As the only dining and entertainment yacht in Destin and Northwest Florida, the 125-foot yacht features three decks of indoor and outdoor fun, including an open-air sky deck, covered outdoor seating and spacious indoor spaces with panoramic windows. Guests enjoy sweeping views of the local Destin waters, surrounding beaches and the Sandestin Resort.
 
Unforgettable memories for many occasions are created weekly on the water. Here are the top ways to experience a SOLARIS cruise:
 
Sunset Dinner Cruise – Rated as one of the top things to do in Sandestin by Tripadvisor, SOLARIS dinner cruises offer a three hour dining and dancing voyage perfectly suited for all ages. The SOLARIS is an unforgettable alternative to fine dining restaurants in Destin Florida. Guests embark on a memorable evening that begins with toasting to the sunset on the sky deck. As the SOLARIS cruises the waters, guests indulge in a three-course, chef-prepared fine dining meal from the outdoor or indoor spaces with panoramic windows. Menu favorites include organic chicken, prime steaks, fresh, local seafood and a special children’s menu. Dance under the stars or on the dancefloor to live music. Fireworks dinner cruises happen twice a week in the summer. The SOLARIS is the recent recipient of TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence Award. We also offer dinner cruise gift cards that never expire so you can give the gift of an unforgettable experience.
 
Destin Weddings – What says romantic or unforgettable better than a sunset yacht wedding on the open waters? The SOLARIS yacht was specifically built as a wedding venue in Sandestin and Destin, featuring a private bridal suite, an altar and photo platform on the sky deck, mahogany bar and spacious indoor and outdoor spaces for any size group. SOLARIS weddings are stress-free for many reasons: hosting the ceremony and reception in the same weather-proof venue; affordable, flexible packages that include full-time event planners; and having accommodations steps away at the Sandestin Resort. For seven consecutive years, the SOLARIS team has been honored with review-based wedding accolades including the Knot’s Best of Weddings, the Knot’s Hall of Fame and WeddingWire’s Couples Choice Award.
 
Holidays – SOLARIS specialty cruises have evolved into a time-honored tradition for families to celebrate the holidays. Annual lunch cruises are planned for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Thanksgiving. Sandestin Fireworks can be viewed weekly in the summer from the dinner cruises as well as 4th of July and New Year’s Eve.
 
Meetings & Corporate Functions – The SOLARIS event planners are known for “thinking outside the ballroom” by planning meetings and corporate functions dockside. The flexible and inspirational spaces on the yacht have been tailored for semi-private or private functions including presentations, conferences, retreats, banquets, meetings, ceremonies, military events and more.
 
Events – A seven–year recipient of the Best of the Emerald Coast Award for Weddings and Venues, the SOLARIS yacht venue features 5,300 square feet of luxurious space for up to 150 people. Group rates are available for many events from large bridal events and holiday parties to small anniversaries and birthdays.

Destin Weddings on SOLARIS Yacht | Alex + Rob

Weddings on SOLARIS Yacht Venue | Alex + Rob

 
Congrats to Alex and Rob on their romantic Destin wedding and reception on the SOLARIS yacht. It was a beautiful September day in Sandestin as SOLARIS wedding planner Julie escorted the bride down the Baytowne Marina on their wedding golf cart.
 
Alex and her closest friends gathered on the yacht’s private bridal suite to put on the finishing touches before the big moment. Alex stunned in a strapless, tailored lace wedding dress while her bridesmaids donned rose gold long length dresses. The ladies carried beautiful white hydrangea bouquets – flowers that were carried out throughout the wedding.
 
The SOLARIS wedding planners helped execute Alex and Rob’s dream wedding and reception. Antique white lanterns lined the aisles of white chairs on the sky deck. The lanterns were continued into the indoor decks for the reception, coupled with candles and pictures of Alex and Rob.
 
Following her bridesmaids, Alex ascended the staircase to the open-air sky deck where her groom awaited for a majestic wedding on the water with sweeping views of Sandestin and Destin. After the ceremony and a fun photo session on the sky deck’s photo platform, everyone descending to the main deck for the reception as the SOLARIS cruised the waters near Sandestin.
 
At the reception, the seating arrangement was creatively written and displayed on a six-pane window. Guests indulged in savory steaks and fresh Gulf fish, freshly prepared on board by the SOLARIS chefs, while watching the first dances.
 
Alex was in for a great surprise at their cake cutting as Rob playfully smashed cake into her face. The fun continued as everyone danced to live entertainment by David Hall.
 
As the SOLARIS reached the Sandestin marina and everyone departed, Alex + Rob exited under a tunnel of sparklers held up by the guests. A perfect ending to the perfect wedding! Congrats again.
