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.

    Spider Crab Charters

    They did an amazing tour. We were able to see dolphins up close. My four kids who range in age from 12-16 enjoyed every moment. It was a peaceful sunset tour and look forward to doing it again on our next trip to Destin.

    What a Wonderful Way to Spend a Day

    It was myself, my brother, our mother, his wife, his daughter and a friend of hers. None of us had been sailing before, but I can guarantee we will definitely be going again. I've been on plenty of boats, but without an engine running you can really relax to the sound of the water. I would recommend anyone looking for a few truly peaceful hours to give it a try. Captain Karl and his 1st Mate/Wife were both knowledgeable and fun. They even gave us a couple of local restaurants to try and they were both great.

    Sunset cruise

    We had an amazing time sailing with Karl and Doty! The cruise took us around the bay where we were able to see a beautiful sunset and had a perfect view of the fireworks over Destin. Karl’s catamaran was really nice and so was the company. Would recommend to anyone!

    Private Charter with Spider Crab was Awesome!

    Outstanding experience on a private catamaran. The Captain and 1st Mate were completely accommodating to any questions or requests. They were open and honest. Expectations were clear and the overall time on the open water was the furthest thing from a tourist trap. My wife and I went out for a few hours for our anniversary, but I’d definitely charter again and bring the boys. Recommend bringing a small cooler for some adult beverages.

    Wonderful Crew, Awesome Boat, Fantastic Day

    Bob & Kristi: I've been a sailing and catamaran enthusiast since I was a child. I wanted to share that experience with my two grown children while on their military leaves. We enjoyed a relaxing four hour sailing cruise in the bay. Captain Karl and his wife, First Mate Doty, were extremely accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable about their catamaran. They didn't hesitate to answer any questions we had. The boat was clean and well maintained. We look forward to returning to Florida and cruising again. Robert: Very relaxing and I look forward to taking my girl friend next time on a sunset cruise. Gabby: Nice people, beautiful boat, relaxing ride. I look forward to inviting some local Air Force friends next time.
