Mar. 2021
Q:
Is there parking near the departure point for the Crab Island Sandbar Adventure?
A:Parking is a challenge in Destin, so give yourself plenty of time to find it. We always recommend rideshare if possible as an easier way to get to the boats.
Mar. 2021
Q:
How many people can travel together on the same Tiki during the Crab Island Sandbar Adventure?
A:Each boat can take up to six passengers. This is the Coast Guard's law so it is NOT flexible, even if your extra passengers are young or "very small". However, we have 4 boats, so we can take larger groups on separate Tikis.
Mar. 2021
Q:
How do you accommodate a group larger than 6 guests during the Crab Island Sandbar Adventure?
A:When we have groups larger than 6 people, we offer "tandem" cruises where the boats will anchor next to each other once they get to Crab Island. This way you will only be apart for the 15-minute ride to and from the sandbar.
Mar. 2021
Q:
What activities can I do on the Crab Island Sandbar Adventure?
A:You can swim, snorkel, visit one of the many floating restaurants, or just relax and soak up the celebratory vibes.

A:We recommend wearing your bathing suit under your regular clothes. Remember to bring a towel, sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat!
Mar. 2021
Q:
What should I bring with me on the Crab Island Sandbar Adventure?
A:As Crab Island is a submerged sandbar, we recommend bringing floaties (we have a pump to inflate them on board), snorkel gear, cash/cards if you wish to buy food/drinks from the floating restaurants, and your waterproof camera.
Mar. 2021
Q:
Are we allowed to smoke on board the Tiki during the Crab Island Sandbar Adventure?

Q:
Can I bring alcohol on the Crab Island Sandbar Adventure?
A:Liquor is allowed, as are beer and wine. Glass bottles are okay to bring. We provide a cooler with ice that you may use.
Mar. 2021
Q:
Do you provide floaties or other gear during the Crab Island Sandbar Adventure?
A:No. But we do have a pump on board to fill up any floaties you would like to bring. Once the Tiki boat is safely anchored your Captain can inflate those for you.

This was a really fun trip. Sam (captain) is fun and outgoing. She was even able to keep teenagers entertained. That can be a challenge in itself. Ha ha! My kids enjoyed it as much as I did. I would definitely book through this company again.

It was our first time coming to crab island! The water was absolutely beautiful and being aboard a tiki boat was fantastic! Our captain, Harrison, was very personable and social. He engaged in conversation with us and the other couple. He gave all info needed for the trip. Harrison is just an awesome guy! We’d definitely come back for another tour with him! I highly recommend this tiki tour adventure for first time goers!

Captain Mike was great! The water got choppy and he was quick to serve all of us and took the boat in! We did enjoy some football for a minute with the Captain. We will come again and book again.

The kids and I had an awesome time on Crab Island. Randy was great! He was very knowledgeable about the area and had some great stories to share. The ride was also smooth to and from Crab Island and we saw a few dolphins. We're from Charleston, SC and had a great time with the newlyweds who were also from South Carolina. This is an excursion you do not want to miss. I highly recommend it and will be back in April with some girlfriends of mine.

The ride, view, ocean, captain, captain assistant, music, and other people who shared the tiki ride. Once we docked it was nothing but fun and when we boarded it was nothing but fun. I definitely recommend this tiki ride. It was very affordable and we stayed on crab island for 3 fun filled adventurous hours. I will be booking again this summer.

Overrated hardly anything to do there. Our tour guide was just on his phone could have provided some more entertainment

So sorry that you did not enjoy your experience on the tikis to Crab Island. Even when you travel solo, such as yourself on this particular cruise, there’s always plenty to do on the tikis and Crab Island such as swim, explore, water games, floats, RELAX and chill. Usual things people do.
