2018 Best of the Emerald Coast Awards | SOLARIS Yacht Best Destin Wedding & Event Venue
SunQuest Cruises and the SOLARIS Yacht have been recognized for the ninth consecutive year as the Best Wedding Venue in Destin Florida and Best Destin Event Venue by the readers of Emerald Coast Magazine. This accolade comes directly from votes within the local Destin community, making it a huge honor for our company.
“The support from our community has helped the SOLARIS yacht evolve into an iconic place in Destin to celebrate special occasions, whether it’s a wedding, holiday party, anniversary or other special event. We take your typical event and transform it into a memorable and magical experience on a yacht that cruises the open waters while you celebrate. Every event is a magical experience and our team of chefs, event planners and staff are honored to be part of these celebrations,” stated James Murray, Principal of SunQuest Cruises.
The SOLARIS yacht is a truly unique dining and entertainment venue that cruises year-round from the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. Boasting over 5,200 square feet of indoor and outdoor spaces, the SOLARIS offers flexible space for any size event from small intimate dinners to large corporate events, holiday parties or weddings for up to 150 guests. Packages include all-inclusive pricing, event planners, live entertainment and award-winning menus prepared by our chefs. Throughout all three decks, guests will find unique features such as elegant indoor dining rooms with panoramic windows, a full service mahogany bar, covered outdoor deck and the spacious open air sky deck. Take a virtual tour of the SOLARIS here.
Specifically built with Destin weddings in mind, the SOLARIS yacht features an open-air sky deck with unobstructed, panoramic sunset views in a majestic setting. The sky deck also features a bridal platform for couples to get married at by our captain as well as a photo platform for breathtaking pictures. The flexible indoor and outdoor spaces on all three decks make the SOLARIS a weather-proof wedding venue as well as a stress-free process as you host your wedding and reception in the same location. Our award-winning event planners are known for going above and beyond to ensure that everything is smooth sailing and they can even assist with flowers, catering, decor, etc. Our Destin wedding venue has also received the Knot’s Best of Weddings award for nine consecutive years and WeddingWire’s Couple’s Choice Award for three consecutive years.
The SOLARIS also hosts hundreds of other events, including family reunions, corporate meetings, holiday parties and other special events. Instead of hosting an event at the back room of a restaurant or a ballroom, groups and companies can reserve one deck or the entire SOLARIS yacht for a dining and entertainment event on the water. Our events planners can arrange for any type of seating or arrangement including banquet style, classroom style seating, A/V needs, etc. Semi-private and private event packages offer flexible pricing for all size groups.
Thank you again for our entire community for your continued support! We hope to see you soon aboard the SOLARIS!
