    Mission Done

    Got our bucket list trip to Crab Island complete. Really not what we expected and will most likely not do it again.

    Crab Island

    Crew dropped you off. Stayed there and drove you back. Did not help passengers on and off boat. Other passengers were helping guests. Did not say thank you when I put money in tip jar. Be sure and go when it’s high tide. Water was not pretty when we went in afternoon.

    Hi Carlos! Crab Island is definitely one of the most unique attractions in Destin and the water is typically 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 when the water is back to it's usual self.

    Awesome trip, crappy info.

    Trip itself was awesome, the tripshock part sucked. Never gave me a business name, address was vague. Almost didn’t make the boat because there were terrible directions, nothing to tell me where to go or what the boat or company name was. When I finally found it, I had 3 minutes to spare. Ridiculous.

    Kaitlyn, Thank you for the review and booking with TripShock. We are sorry to hear that you almost didn't make the boat on time. The address we provide takes you directly to the marina where the boat is docked. The issue is that there are several boats that share the same dock and address. On the voucher we email to you, there is a lot of info including boat name, directions, and other info. We will have our team look at the voucher once more to make sure there is more we can do to make the experience easier. Thanks again for booking with us.

    Ok, but not that exciting

    We boarded the boat and cruised at a slow speed to Crab Island. When we got there the boat captain gave us a 5 minute history of the island. He also told us about the vendors etc. We walked around in waist deep water for a few minutes and then decided to rent a paddle board as we didn't know what else to do. We purchased overpriced snacks, $2. per snack bag and $4.per fudge pop. and then we were taken back. I don't think that this area is ideal for snorkeling because most of the marine life is scared away by the crowds. I would suggest bringing extra money if you want to do anything besides walk around. The main activities available are eating, jet skis and paddle boarding. They also have an inflatable area for kids that's $20. Per person. Beware that the inflatables may have barnacles... read more

    Our first crab island excursion

    Crab island is alot of fun to start with. The people are nice and friendly. But i got screwed up on the time to when to be back on the boat. So they left us , but in there defense they told us what time to be back. Yes it was my fault. But it would have been nice if they had a smaller boat to go fetch the ones who got screwed up wasn't a full 3hrs because of boat traffice. Kinda disappointed in that point but overall a good trip. Had to bum a ride back in not my greatest time on that, but again my fault. Yes would recommend to try gthis first.

    so so

    It was a fun excursion but over-priced in my opinion. Have there something else to do beside catching hermit crab and waddling in the water, we would have liked it more. Or the trip should be shorten and priced lower. Although the captain and his assistant were very nice folks.

    Crab excursion

    The actual excursion was fine. Crew was extremely friendly. My husband & I would have had more fun with another couple because you are literally standing around in the water talking.
