I've gone to this "spectacle" many times over the years. It's a real hoot! Let's face it folks, after 9pm there isn't a whole lot to do on Captiva/Sanibel Island, what are you gonna do go back to your hotel and watch TV? This is a fun little event. Some people have complained about it not being kid friendly...I guess... More

Good fun! (also see my review of the crow's nest) - such a crazy idea - we enjoyed the event & think other families might have fun here, too. The race "master" can be a little on the cheeky side but as long as the people he "picks" on play along & have a sense of humour it is really... More

Our kids enjoyed the crab races. Unfortunately the food is average at best. The staff was friendly and helpful.

too long and somewhat boring after awhile. Only serve a limited overpriced menu during the crab races, then have expanded menu after the races.

We went to the 9pm adult show. It was a fun and unique thing to do after having a few cocktails and made me laugh pretty hard. As others have mentioned, the race director does poke fun at and squirts people, but it's all in good fun and not mean spirited at all... It only adds to the laughs. To... More

It's a unique experience and I would recommend it to anyone looking for some fun. It's entertaining, and while my crab didn't win it was great fun watching everyone cheer on their own crab.

We entered three crabs in the race, but didn't win. The real fun comes when the guy running the races does his thing! He can be slightly insulting, but it's all in good fun.... You can't be sensitive, but take it for what it is-- good natured ribbing! My wife and I were singled out many times, but the guy... More

You cannot the hordes that turn out for this....lots of kids and parents at the early show and couples for the later show. I, unfortunately, have heard the spiel many times while I am trying to have dinner at the Crow's Nest. I guess people like it, but I think the guy is a little rough so if you are... More
