    Crab island is overrated

    Crab island is overrated. Yes, its cool that theres a bunch of vendors floating on the water but its really just a bunch of people standing around in knee-level water drinking. Theres really not much to do other than eat and drink. The captain was nice but the boat leaves you with a long walk to get to everything and really isnt worth the price. All they do is drive you 15 mins to crab island. Youre better off getting there another way for a cheaper price.

    Hi Brianna! Crab Island is one of Destin's top attractions for both locals and visitors. Before there were vendors, Crab Island was known as a great place to simply relax and enjoy the waist-deep crystal waters. Our captain tries to position the boat in a convenient location for all of our guests as many vendors are spread out. Our crew provides service for three hours as they stay with you at Crab Island. Our rates are the most cost effective way of visiting Crab Island where a boat will stay with you the entire time. Additionally, there is a restroom on board and our crew assists our guests during the duration of the tour.

    We thought CRAB ISLAND was a very BIG let down ‼️ According to all the reviews we read it was suppose to be this amazing place where the water is beautiful & crystal clear & there’s all these playground water toys to play on‼️ Well there were playground toys but you had to pay for them if you wanted to pat

    Hi Billie, Crab Island is definitely one of the most unique attractions in Destin and the water typically is crystal clear, but sometimes weather and currents can have an effect on the water clarity. I'm sorry that mother nature didn't give you a better experience, but hopefully we see you next time and that the water is back to it's usual self. You can always bring your own flotation devices, snorkeling gear, etc on this trip but you also may want to bring cash because there are quite a few vendors out there offering activities, rentals, food/drinks, etc. Thanks again for sharing your feedback and booking with us.

    Unfair - 3 hour tour was an hour - no dolphin tour -

    We weren’t completely satisfied we paid $160 for two adults two kids for a three hour excursion. In the description it says Dolphin tour and then park at Crab Island. There was no dolphin tour period. While we were in the boat line for crab island luckily we did see a dolphin but just by chance. They did not take us on a dolphin tour. We left at 10ish got to Crab Island and out the boat by 10:35. We were not even there for a full hour when a storm came through and we all got back in the boat and went back to the harbor. Excursion over no refund no rescheduling no apology no lets park and see if it blows over. We work really hard to go on vacation we didn’t have the money just to blow on 45 minutes at Crab Island and no dolphin tour as stated and definitely not a “3 hour excursion”.... read more

    Not what I thought it would be

    Crab island is not an island. The boat ride was okay. I was expecting there to be land, hence the name, but to find out there use to be land and now it's a floating bounce house with bars and food...
