Come out with us and enjoy our fantastic emerald green waters. Day trips may consist of a trip to Crab Island - A shallow sand bar area that is perfect for families and couples. Our shallow draft 34ft Gemini catamaran allows us to pull up close to the sandbar for easy access. Or maybe dolphin watching is more your style? While we can't guarantee a sighting, we very often see playful dolphins in our waters. A simple, leisurely sail on the bay is also available for those who just want to escape it all. You can't leave Destin without going on a sunset cruise. Our sunsets are some of the most beautiful in the world. Whatever trip you choose, the salt air and warm breezes are sure to melt away the stresses of daily living.

Tour Highlights
→ Morning, afternoon or sunset charters available

    Great Trip With Kaptain Karl

    Karl was a great guide and host for our first sailing adventure. I am hooked. I would recommend at least four hours and a moderately windy day for a premium experience. I recommend Spider Crab Charters wholeheartedly!

    Amazing Proposal

    The captain and his wife were amazing! I booked this cruise to propose to my now fiancé last week. They accommodated every request that I had with ease. My fiancé could not have been happier with my proposal thanks to Spider Crab Charters. We even saw several dolphins in the bay before I got down on one knee. They can play any music that you want and can film the trip if you so choose. I strongly recommend Spider Crab Charters for anyone looking for a special cruise. A+ rating from me and my fiance!

    Short Cruise Near Destin Harbor

    My family and I went for a short (two hour) cruise near Destin Harbor. It was a wonderfully relaxing trip. Carl, the captain, was waiting for us when we arrived at the designated pickup point, and he was clearly an experienced sailor. We felt perfectly safe aboard the catamaran. The boat was conformable, clean, and easy to get around on. And, it was very nice being on a boat that was not filled to capacity. We will definitely choose Spider Crab Charters again, next time for a longer cruise.

    Great experience in every way

    I chartered the catamaran to propose to my girlfriend. Things couldn't have gone better. The Captain and his wife are super nice, the boat is well-equipped and good, and the sailing location is superb. Highly recommended. Lovely experience.

    Great way to experience the gulf

    Captain is very professional, friendly, and safety conscious. Catamaran is stable, a good sized boat to take out into the gulf waters and enjoy the breeze and the sun. When the wind dies, a quiet diesel engine purrs along. He picks you up from the beach in a dinghy and you never get wet. If you want to go out into the gulf and also explore the bay you should book for 3 or 4 hours. Due to the wind you should have some warm clothing even when it's sunny. We had a rich experience, learned much about marine life, saw dolphins, and hated that it ended too soon! Wonderful!

    Wonderful getaway, worth every penny

    The Captain and his 1st Mate were the perfect company as well as knowledgeable and a delight. Beautiful sailboat at what I believe to be a bargain price. Our party of two was perfect, 4 would be fun, 6 could get crowded. We are planning another adventure with them this Summer!

    Wonderful Experience on private sailboat!!!

    What a wonderful experience. I'd only booked for 3 hours since it was my first time, but i wish we'd booked for the entire day. Captain Carl and his wife were just great. Book it!! It's worth every dime.
