Enjoy Easter Lunch on a Yacht on the Bay.
Your family thought it was a good idea to rent a Destin, Florida vacation rental beach house over Easter. But, it’s Easter, and there are certain traditions your family enjoys, and just sitting around your Destin, Florida vacation rental beach house isn’t one of them.
Going out for Easter lunch is a tradition for your family. The younger set may dream of going to the beach or boating in areas like Destin, Florida, but grudgingly go along for the sake of family tradition.
Well, you can leave your Destin, Florida vacation rental, and they can have their cake and eat it, too - literally. They can be on the water observing the sights and sounds of Choctawhatchee Bay while enjoying some of the finest food (and perhaps cake) in Destin.
Sun Quest Cruises is hosting an Easter lunch aboard their dinner-dance yacht, Solaris, on Easter Sunday, April 8 from 1-3 P.M. Boarding for the cruise is at 12:15 P.M.
Long time residents of the area who have lots of experience dining at various restaurants with gulf views sing the praises of the cruise. Some say the Solaris has to be the BEST restaurant on the bay, with some of the most breathtaking views in the area.
While the food and service receive very high marks, people also enjoy the live entertainment, dance floor, camaraderie of meeting other people sitting at their table cruise ship style, and a common sighting of dolphins jumping and swimming alongside the boat.
The boat is three levels so passengers are able to leave the two climate controlled dining salons and go out on the decks to observe the scenery as they wish. There are 5,300 square feet of passenger space.
The menu for the event prepared onboard in their full service galley is:
1st Course: Fresh Romaine and Baby Spinach salad, pine nuts, hearts of palm, feta cheese and herb vinaigrette.
2nd Course: Choose one of the following for every guest age 11 and up:
Fresh Gulf Fish of the Day on Toasted Orzo and Tomato Marsala Concasse

Seared Pork Loin Roulade filled with Fresh Herbs, Parmesan and Bacon, Portabella Port Wine glaze, Red Bliss Potato Mash and Asparagus
Children's Menu: (Ages 3-10) choose from either Chicken Tenders with Red Bliss Potato Mash and Asparagus or Macaroni and Cheese
