WE ARE CLOSED FOR THE SEASON. WE WILL REOPEN MID-MARCH 2023!
New to Destin Snorkel this year, we are thrilled to offer our guests a new “family friendly” – Crab Island Adventure, with captain and crew! You’ll go by boat to one of our area’s most popular destinations where you can kick back and enjoy our three hour trip without the hassle of renting your own boat! While Crab Island’s name is slightly misleading, it’s nothing more than a raised sandbar where hundreds of boats gather during the warmer months to enjoy the shallow emerald green waters and mobile food boats and floating restaurants – providing everything from ice cream, BBQ, to coconuts!
We at Destin Snorkel pride ourselves on our family friendly culture and environment and expect the same from our guests but acknowledge that at times, other Crab Island visitors may not maintain the same behavior.
Activities you can enjoy while at Crab Island:
- Relaxing on our boat while soaking up some sun
- Paddling around the sandbar by kayak or paddleboard**
- Joining in a game of water volleyball**
- Sampling local fare from a floating restaurant or mobile food boat
- Watching for dolphins and other marine life
- Tossing a football or frisbee and diving into the water to catch it**
- Making new friends & people watching!
**Please note – items are available for purchase or rent from the floating General Store. Also, we cannot guarantee what food vendors will be out on any given day.
What to bring:
Water is provided for our guests and while we do not serve alcohol you are welcome to bring your own, as long as it isn’t in glass containers (there is no alcohol sold at Crab Island so BYOB). Have on your bathing suit, bring sunscreen lotion (spray on sunscreen is not allowed to be used on the boat), beach towel, camera, and you’re more than welcome to bring food and snacks. Ice chests are allowed but please be mindful of space consumption, as it must fit under your seat.
