Experience Crab Island

After your fun-filled stop at the Gulf Islands National Seashore, you’ll return to the boat and enjoy the short boat ride to your second destination: the famous Crab Island sandbar, where you can relax at the area’s most popular aquatic hot spot and float your cares away. Break out your cooler and enjoy a cold drink while floating in the crystal clear, waist-deep water or wade around the sandbar and meet some new friends. Wrap it all up with a relaxing ride back through the Destin Harbor as you swap stories of your day’s adventures on the return trip.

The 19′ Cobia we rented was an excellent boat. It was well maintained and had all the options a fishing boat should have. We were especially pleased with the service and professionalism of the staff, who really made us feel like their utmost goal was for us to have an enjoyable experience and we did.
