What we chose to do
We found the Crab Island Excursion through a Google search. The reviews looked great, so we booked!
We booked the day before and had no problem.
I have been to Crab Island years ago with a college roommate. My girlfriend had never been to Destin, and thought it would be a fun activity.
It was about a 5 miles from our beach condo, taking maybe 15 minutes because of traffic.
The Captain was very goofy and friendly, and made sure to point out the dolphins. His First Mate, Heather, was very entertaining and funny. They helped us on and off of the boat once we anchored, threw us drinks in the water, were there to take pictures if needed, and so much more!
We saw some dolphins as we were getting on the boat. The boat ride was smooth and the Captain and First Mate were very attentive and entertaining.
While we were out at Crab Island, we got some boiled peanuts and ice cream. We also participated in the “water park” with the floats on the water. We slipped and slided and busted our butts so many times! We even found a little salt water hermit crab on Crab Island! It was such a fun and memorable time.
I would highly recommended this to any person visiting, adult or kid. There are plenty of activities to keep adults entertained, as well as things to keep children occupied.
