There's something truly special about being on the water at night. Some of my favorite memories as a kid are from spending nights on Selah, whether it was sleeping under the stars in a calm anchorage or making a sailing passage during the early morning. Sometimes the water was filled with bioluminescent organisms and the boat would leave a glowing wake behind us. Even though we no longer use the stars to navigate, it's still amazing to sail under a night sky and imagine what it would have been like.
That's why I'm so excited to offer night sailing trips here in Destin on select nights. The perfect way to end a hot sunny day on our beautiful white beaches is to sail by moonlight, enjoying a cool breeze and seeing the lights of Destin from the water.
Everything Thursday night in Destin between Memorial Day and Labor Day locals and visitors are treated to an amazing display of fireworks. This makes the end of night cruise feel truly special. An evening spent on Selah can consist of a gorgeous sunset and a twilight cruise through the harbor, followed by some time to drop anchor, enjoy cocktails and watch fireworks light up the Florida sky.
Sailing under a full moon is another an unforgettable experience. If you're in Destin during a full moon you won't want to miss your chance to be out on Selah when the moon is at its brightest.
Full moon cruises start at $361 and leave right before sunset. Fireworks cruises start at just $207 and can be tailored to create your perfect night. Whether you just want an up and close view of the fireworks, or you'd prefer to take in the sunset first while enjoying a bottle of wine, there is something for everyone.
