    So Much Fun!

    We have been to Destin several times but had never heard of the Craigcats until this time. They were so much fun! We rode around in the harbor and to Crab Island. If you go to Crab Island make sure you take money though. We didn't take any and missed out on some cool activities and food. We definitely rent the Craicats again!

    The Craigcat boat was a great activity to do while we were in Destin. I an unable to get around very much and this was wonderful for sightseeing and just getting out in the ocean by ourselves. We loved it and would do it again in a heartbeat. I will be telling my friends and family about it.

    Craigcat Boat Rentals

    My daughter and I came in on a Monday and had a Craigcat boat rental lined up for 5pm. Not being from the area, we had a little difficulty finding the place so called and were given directions. Once there the gentleman renting the boats was very informative and friendly. We had no problems at all operating the boat and had a great time!!

    The lady on the phone that took the reservation was very nice. She actually made a few additional calls for us to find answers for our questions. When I arrived at the rental, the boat was there and ready. The man that helped us was very nice and helpful. Boat trip all went well. Very good results from this experience.
