Fun- but for adults only.

Enjoyed this diversion a great deal. But if you have wee ones with you you might want to skip this attraction. The mc material may embarrass you somewhat.

We were really excited about attending this event. We stopped by on Wednesday and told that Nascrab is Monday and Thursday nights (we knew this because of Tripadvisor). We invited our entire group and went for dinner and crabraces to find out there were no races. The waitress was very unfreindly and told us 'not tonite' (even though advertised).

If you are in Captiva and want to check out something fun than make your way over to The Crows Nest at Tween Waters Inn. They hold crab racing on Mondays and Thursday's. My wife and I went to the adult show and had a great time. If you are looking for G rated this is NOT the show for... More

A do not miss event when visiting Captiva. WE all wait with anticipation for Thursday nights. Family and adult versions of this show make for a very fun night for all in your group.

Had seen the crab races years before and thought it might be fun to take our adult children. Arrived an hour early where we were directed to sit at the bar. Several members of our party inquired about how to participate- whether there was a checkin or queue and were told to sit at the bar. Our group of 7... More

We went to The Crows Nest for a quiet dinner. Not to be had. In the room next to us was a loud, not funny, announcer for the hermit crab races. The really need to close off this area or at least turn down the volume.

Loved the crab races. Very entertaining and some of the proceeds go to United Way. Didn't stay for the adult version but I'm sure it was fun. We will be back.

The first time we went to this show, it was quite funny and a unique experience. We came back a few years later and did both the early (kid friendly) and late show with some different groups we were traveling with. With this I figured out that after the first time there is nothing unique about this show. He has... More

Willies NASCRAB Crab Race is really a HUGELY entertaining comedy show wrapped around a hermit crab race. TONS of laughs!!! Never would imagine laughing out of my chair while raising money for the United Way could be so fun! Both the adult show and kids event were comical and engaging. Be aware the adult show is REALLY meant for adults!... More

Ok, it's unique, querky, worth some laughs. But consider yourself warned, the entertainer/host is harsh, rude, crass and will offend at least a few in the crowd. And I don't believe he gives half the winnings to a reputable charity; bogus! The IRS will get him eventually.
