    Crab Island Excursion

    Captain Hal and First mate, Daniel, were very kind and created a safe and fun environment. We enjoyed not having to deal with the hassle of driving the boat ourselves. The boat did park far away from the activities at Crab Island which with currents creates a long walk on the sandbar. We thought the water would be knee high but it was waist high (I’m 5’6”) so with kids that’s quite a trek in currents. The drinks for sale are all non-alcoholic only and the food places don’t open until it’s about time to leave (we did the 9:45 tour) so we didn’t get to experience any of those.

    Jellyfish Minefield!

    This was an expensive trip to “jellyfish island”! There were so many that we didn’t feel comfortable staying in the water. However, Captain Hal and First Mate Heather were top notch. If not for them, I would rate this excursion a 1 out of 5 stars. Note: adult beverages are no longer available for purchase through the vendors. If you want that sort of thing, take your cooler!

    My kids loved the experience and captain. Very experienced and fun! The company is not professional though. The check in booth attendants were more interested in talking with their friends than helping customers. Then, after our departure time came and went, we just sat there, with many others, having no idea what was going on. Our trip ended up leaving 15 minutes late, which would be acceptable if even one person came to explain what was happening, when we were leaving, or if we were ever leaving. When it was time to board, there wasn’t an explanation or apology.
