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
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.

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.

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.

Mar 2021
Are we allowed to smoke on board the Tiki during the Crab Island Sandbar Adventure?

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.

Do you provide floaties or other gear during the Crab Island Sandbar Adventure?

We had a good time in the water at crab island. Sadly we did not get to experience the best part of it. The website did not tell us that the vendors would not be there at the time we attended. We went in March but according to our tiki guide, vendors don’t come until April. Next time we go we will definitely get the full experience.

We had an absolutely amazing time on our Tiki Cruise!! Captain Mandy was fantastic, we were running late due to the crazy traffic and she called to make sure we were still coming. She provided cups, ice, and a cooler, blew up up our water floaties for us (had an electric pump), took pictures of us when we asked, and played music to get our party started. The cruise was beautiful, nice and smooth, and she took us to what is basically a big party in the bay. We are so happy we decided to do this excursion and if it is available while we are still here, we may do it again!! Thank you so much!!
A Super Fun Experience!

We had such a great time with Captain Gentry "Moondoggie" Rogers! It was a sunny but cooler day in Destin so we first stopped at Crab Island. After everyone was done wading in the water, he offered to take us to a beachy location to sit in the sand. Since I am a Floridian, it was a bit chilly for me to spend time in the water so he offered to take us on a bonus cruise around the residential area of Destin. It was so much fun to cruise the area on your own little Tiki Bar. We had plenty of time to explore and enjoy our champagne and snacks that we brought along with us. Will totally do this again the next time we visit!

This experience was amazing!!! A must-see if traveling to the Destin-Miramar area. We were out for about 3 hours and my family enjoyed every second of our venture out. Our driver even let my son drive the tiki once close to the doc. 5 Stars!!!!!!!!!!
