    Great experience from the ease in booking the excursion, Friendly and professional staff/crew as well as price point. Even though a jellyfish wanted in on some of the fun, it was a beautiful and relaxing day. We definitely will book again next time we’re in town.

    Crab Island

    This was our 1st time going to Crab Island. We had a blast. The crew was very accommodating. We wish we would have know more about what to expect as far as what to bring. We thought there was alcoholic beverages available on the boat for sale. And things like bring your own entertainment.

    Crew review

    The advice I would leave would be that the speech giving directions on using the head would be much less derogatory, more professional and still effective without the kites and yo-yo’s joke.

    Great trip

    I would recommend bringing some goggles, there are lots of tiny fish to look at. Also bringing some type of flotation device. Yes you can stand the whole time but bringing an inner tube is nice to relax in.It was a great time. This tour brings you to the sand bar for 3 hours. We went in the morning and got lunch out there. it was great. collected lots of sea shells too.

    Fun excursion to Crab Island

    We had a small group so renting a pontoon boat was too costly. This was the perfect alternative and it was the right amount of time too.

    The Crab Island Excursion was a great experience.

    This was a great opportunity to visit Crab Island without needing to drive and maneuver a boat through the crowd of people. The only downfall is that 3 hours just isn't long enough.

    Crab island was so fun!

    This excursion was fun! The excursion says its 3 hours but you have to take into account the 10-15 minutes to get there and we had to get back on the boat 30 minutes prior to it's not really a full 3 hours, nonetheless we felt it was enough time to experience the island for the first time. The boat crew were very helpful and explained all the rules. They made it very clear if you're not back on the boat 30 minutes prior that you will get left. We brought a cooler with drink and floats to lounge around in and btw they can blow them up on the boat for free. Crab island was very fun...definitely more fun if you bring floats and fun accessories to play with. All of the floating stores/bars accept cash and credit. Next time we go, we'll rent a pontoon to get the full experience but... read more
