    Fun Family Experience

    for the price it wasnt too bad. we had two adults and 3 children and it was around $140. we went on a pontoon that dropped us off at crab island for 2 hours. it was a 3 hour event but it tool 30min there and 30min back. It was a fun family experience.

    Would not recommend!

    This excursion was a waste of money and the captain & staff are a rip off. They parked way too far from the entertainment and $0.50 chips were a rip off at $2.00 each. Also way to many Jelly fish this past week. If you must go to Crab Island, rent a pontoon and have your own party

    Crab Island in Destin

    The boat was clean. The crew was fine. However, the cost of the boat ride was overpriced. Crab Island itself was nothing special. There were jelly fish everywhere. My family and I all got stung. The inflatable playground was really difficult for young kids. The whole excursion was a waste of $200. I would not recommend this trip.

    Great Trip to Crab Island

    We had a great time! The staff and crew were helpful, fun and made the day fun for all! 3 hours was a good timeframe for our family of 8 with kids ranging from 9-23. I would recommend this trip for those wanting to experience Crab Island!

    Crab Island is worth the trip

    Joe and Larry were amazing and the trip to Crab Island is a must on your visit to Destin. We thought of renting a boat to get there but were glad we didn't. They park the boat in a central location so you can play and not have to worry about anchoring or running into anyone. Definitely recommend!

    Fun trip

    Booking the excursion was easy. The captain and assistant were professional and helpful and also friendly and fun. The trip to Crab Island was a short one and we would have enjoyed a little more of a boat ride. This is especially true with the price of the trip. Our children enjoyed both the boat ride and their time on Crab Island.
