    Mission Done

    Crew review

    The advice I would leave would be that the speech giving directions on using the head would be much less derogatory, more professional and still effective without the kites and yo-yo’s joke.

    Great trip

    I would recommend bringing some goggles, there are lots of tiny fish to look at. Also bringing some type of flotation device. Yes you can stand the whole time but bringing an inner tube is nice to relax in.It was a great time. This tour brings you to the sand bar for 3 hours. We went in the morning and got lunch out there. it was great. collected lots of sea shells too.

    Waste of $$

    Would never do that again. It was nasty and gross. You’re paying to go on a boat to waist-deep water and walk around and drink.

    Hi Tammy, Crab Island is definitely one of the most unique attractions in Destin. Before there were vendors, Crab Island was known as a great place to simply relax. 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 you can join us again when the water clarity is better.

    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.
