Our ticket booth is located on the Marina Level downstairs to the left of Margaritaville. We are the red ticket booth with the green roof.

When should we arrive?

We strongly recommend arriving one hour prior to boarding to allow time for traffic, parking, and checking in. Boarding begins 30 minutes prior to departure.

What should we bring?

We recommend bringing sunscreen, a camera, a hat, sunglasses, and cash (for snacks and for tipping the mates). During spring and fall months, you may want to bring jackets as our sunset cruises tend to be cooler in temperature.

HarborWalk Village charges $20 per vehicle to park in the on-site parking lot or the parking garage of the Emerald Grande condo. Cash and cards are accepted. Alternative parking options include the City of Destin’s two paid public parking lots at the intersections of Highway 98 and Marler Street, Calhoun Avenue, or Zerbe Street. Limited street parking is available along Stahlman Avenue on the north side of Highway 98.

We have a galley that offers hot dogs, chips, sodas, smoothies, and other small snack items available for purchase.

Do you serve drinks?

We sell sodas and smoothies. Water is complimentary. Beer, wine, daiquiris, and margaritas are available for those 21 and over. We are a family cruise, and as such we ask that you please enjoy in moderation and responsibly. Coolers and outside alcohol are not permitted on board.
