    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

    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.

    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.

    Awesome!

    This crab island excursion was so fun! The gentlemen on the boat were very funny and friendly and the island was beautiful. The water was clear, not too deep, and there's several things to do on the island. There's food and drinks available for purchase as well as kayaks and paddle boats! I'm ready to book again!
