Sunset cruises are a fantastic and affordable way for families and couples alike to enjoy a 1.5-hour to 2-hour boat ride while experiencing the natural beauty of the Destin area at sunset. Watch as the sun sets to the west and the water glitters with golds and silvers and coppers, while the sky erupts with color. A soft breeze blows as the sun sets on the horizon, and your tropical day in Destin, Florida is complete.

The 19′ Cobia we rented was an excellent boat. It was well maintained and had all the options a fishing boat should have. We were especially pleased with the service and professionalism of the staff, who really made us feel like their utmost goal was for us to have an enjoyable experience and we did.
