A marriage made in heaven begins with a proposal in paradise. There are few things more romantic than proposing at sunset while sailing on a boat. If you’re considering taking the plunge, we have a few tips for the proposal.

•Inform the crew of your plan when you make reservations.

•Do you have a special song? You’re in luck. Wild Hearts is equipped with great music and speakers. Bring the song on your phone or let the crew know your plans in advance so your special song can be playing when you pop the question.

•Don’t drop the ring! We offer a scuba diving cruise, but it’s only fun if you’re not looking for an engagement ring at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico.

•Wait to pop the question until the boat goes into full sail and the motors are off. Let the quiet sounds of the sailboat gliding through the water set the tone.

•Bring a bottle of bubbly to celebrate.

If you’re the adventurous type and are both certified divers, consider an underwater proposal on the Perdido Key Scuba/Snorkeling Sail.
