This is for the younger crowd who like to drink and party. Otherwise I would not recommend. Also there’s really nothing to do once you get to the “island”.

One of the best things we did on our vacation! The captain and B were spectacular! We did have a little mishap and didn’t receive the email to the meeting time and location. We were late and they accommodated well. The owner met us with warm greetings and from that moment on we new we were in for fun times!!! Highly recommend doing this with these guys. They go above and beyond to make sure you are having the time of your life !

Captain smoked and threw two butts in ocean.extremely disappointed since everything is all about leaving with what you brought. Also we were supposed to leave at 930. Left out of ft Walton instead of Destin. So lost 45 minutes if we would have left from Destin and also lost time due to a late arrival. Should never wait on someone. It’s their loss. Not mine !! Trip overall at crab island was good. However you had to be VIP to get pop or water or their boat toys. There is another company out of Destin that gives these complimentary. I personally will not use this place again. Too much competition there to have this kind of arrogance.

This tour was pretty good but some things can be improved upon. We didn't have much to compare it to since this was our first time visiting Crab Island and using the Water Taxi. First off, it's not necessary to upgrade to VIP for $30 extra per person because you only get small little bags of cookies, cheez its, etc and access to some water bottles...You can bring all that yourself if you want or purchase it from the vendors floating in Crab Island. You also get access to some floats and scuba gear but that's not really necessary. I thought I would want the raft more than I really did so it's not worth it.

Also be aware that the check in space is NOT the same space you leave from...You actually have to drive a ways AWAY from Crab Island to catch a pontoon that then takes you BACK and it takes about a half hour out there and the back...so that takes up a good chunk of your time. We booked back to back 3 hours tours to get as much time out there as possible.

The communication could be better prior to booking and giving you all the correct info but overall the staff was friendly and provided a good vibe on the boat. I would recommend getting larger boats or booking less people as there aren't enough seats on the boats for everyone to sit comfortably. Some people were sitting on containers filled with the snacks, scuba gear, etc... but it is nice to have a bathroom on the boat if needed during your time at Crab Island.

I think next time we visit Crab Island we will plan to rent a Jet Ski or something that just leaves from the Destin Marina as it saves us time and most likely money.
