    Crab island excursion

    Such a beautiful area. The staff was really nice and funny! Everyone got back into the boat a little early so they took us on an extra trip to find dolphins. If you’re wanting an even better time go on this trip during the weekend. Weekdays a lot of the businesses and activities on crab island are closed. Also- be aware of the jellyfish swimming around and don’t step on the crabs!

    Crab island was so fun!

    This excursion was fun! The excursion says its 3 hours but you have to take into account the 10-15 minutes to get there and we had to get back on the boat 30 minutes prior to it's not really a full 3 hours, nonetheless we felt it was enough time to experience the island for the first time. The boat crew were very helpful and explained all the rules. They made it very clear if you're not back on the boat 30 minutes prior that you will get left. We brought a cooler with drink and floats to lounge around in and btw they can blow them up on the boat for free. Crab island was very fun...definitely more fun if you bring floats and fun accessories to play with. All of the floating stores/bars accept cash and credit. Next time we go, we'll rent a pontoon to get the full experience but... read more

    Awful Excursion!

    The pontoon drivers was very rude and behaved as if we were wearing on their nerves. They were rude to a mother who daughter was freakin out because of the jellyfish in the water. We wondered if they were suffering from hangovers because they definitely appeared to be annoyed since they ignored our questions. One of them even cursed when asked a question. Very unprofessional and disrespectful. Awful excursion!

    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

    I will be back!

    Had a really good time at crab island, people are friendly, the water is shallow and it's just a good place/time to drink. The crew was friendly, get there early to get a spot in the shade, the boat can be hot. They aren't able to park close enough so the walk back to grab beer or drinks is pretty annoying. I'm sure taking a tube to carry your cooler on would be smarter. The crew took us to look for dolphins which was nice and did their best to keep the floors cool.
