Vegetarian options, premium appetizers, children’s menu and celebration packages are also available. View our fine dining menu below.


Live entertainment

While the SOLARIS cruises the local waters, guests can enjoy a great meal and then dance the night away to live music by entertaining musicians. Dance under the moonlight on the open air sky deck or listen from the comfort of your table.

Our live entertainment keeps everyone dancing until we reach the docks, playing a wide range of music from MoTown to current hits.


Sunsets and Coastal Breezes

After being greeted onboard the 125 foot SOLARIS yacht by our captain, guests are welcome to begin their voyage at the full-service bar for a premium cocktail, specialty brew or glass of wine (additional cost to base tickets).

Take in the coastal breezes and panoramic views of Sandestin as you toast to the colorful sunset from the open air sky deck or the panoramic windows in the indoor dining rooms – a majestic setting for pictures.

“We had an awesome time on the Sunset Dinner Cruise from Sandestin. The staff was friendly, the food was excellent, and the captain was extremely nice. Fantastic experience!”

“The Meal, The View, The Staff, The Fireworks: I’m a foodie and I was BLOWN away by the filet mignon. The staff is very pleasant and attentive. Fireworks from Sandestin were great.”

“Everything about this excursion is first class. The service and meals were way beyond expectation and the quality given at other restaurants. David Hall was the entertainer and was excellent, singing songs all of the passengers could enjoy.”
