Sandestin is home to the SOLARIS, the only fine dining and entertainment yacht in the area. The SOLARIS cruises year-round, rain or shine for weekly dinner, dancing and sunset cruises. The SOLARIS takes Destin restaurants and waterfront dining to the next level as you indulge in award-winning cuisines while cruising into the sunset. Our fine dining menus include prime seafood and fresh, local Gulf seafood.
Rated as one of the top things to do in Destin Fla during your beach vacation, the SOLARIS’s weekly Fireworks & Dinner Cruises are the ultimate way to experience the Emerald Coast. Begin the evening cruising into the sunset and toasting to a great night and end with a bang with a spectacular fireworks show.
Your evening begins with a warm greeting from the captain. Explore all three indoor and outdoor decks of the spacious yacht. Grab a cocktail from the full-service bar and head to the open-air sky deck for unparalleled views of the Sandestin Resort and the open waters. As we cruise into the sunset, enjoy the coastal breezes, the relaxing mood and perhaps even a dolphin sighting.
Meanwhile, the SOLARIS chefs are preparing a three course, coastal cuisine meal on-board the yacht’s galley. Enjoy warm bread and salad as well as your choice of entree from prime steaks to fresh, locally caught seafood.
Dance under the stars to live music by the house DJ. The evening ends with a bang as the sky above you illuminates with fireworks from the Destin Harbor. Whether you’re seeking a romantic dinner or fun for the family, this is one cruise you will never forget.
