Here’s What Travelers Are Saying About Crab Island
“Oh, my goodness. It was such a fun day! Our grandchildren loved riding and hanging out at Crab Island. It was an experience that we definitely plan to repeat.”

“We docked at Crab Island and took our time getting lunch, while we played around and waded in the water. Seeing the sights of wildlife around the sandbars was definitely the best part! I would recommend this activity to anyone who asked; it was the best and most affordable activity I’ve been able to do in the 20 years that I’ve been coming to the Destin area.”
