    The tour operator has provided the following answers to customers’ questions.
    Where do we depart from for the Crab Island Sandbar Adventure?
    The departure point is located at 302 Harbor Blvd, directly in front of The Harbor Tavern Destin.
    Answered Mar 2021
    Is there parking near the departure point for the Crab Island Sandbar Adventure?
    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.
    Answered Mar 2021
    How many people can travel together on the same Tiki during the Crab Island Sandbar Adventure?
    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.
    Answered Mar 2021
    How do you accommodate a group larger than 6 guests during the Crab Island Sandbar Adventure?
    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.

      Captain Murray was such a personable guy who made sure we got everything we could out of the experience. He set up all of the water games, let us choose the music, and called over the venders when we wanted something. So much fun!

      Captain Murray! Best experience
      This was the highlight of our trip! We visited the shop adjacent to the tiki excursion check-in. The person who checked us out was super friendly and made the Best Bloody Mary I’ve ever had. Crab Island was beautiful and SO much fun. Captain Murray made this experience top notch. The ride on the tiki on the way to the island was so entertaining, fun, and many laughs. He’s music playlist was on fire. I’m not sure if you can pick your Captain, but Captain Murray is the reason we will definitely return and book again on our next Destin trip. We’ll definitely spread the word on the great experience. Thanks Captain Murray, you truly are the best and engaged with everyone on our tiki!!!

      Great Experience
      Cruisin’ Tiki was a great way to explore Crab Island. We went on the 3hr cruise with Captain Brian. He was very nice and had a lot of knowledge about the area. He provided activities for the kids and was very accommodating. I would 10/10 go again and recommend!

    Very cool experience! It was neat to see the floating general store and restaurant... there was even an ice cream boat floating around!

    Our driver was average but, not the friendliest. I’m not sure how to justify spending almost $600 for someone to drive our group 10 minutes out and 10 minutes back with absolutely no other perks.

    The Crusin Tiki’s Destin was an excellent choice and exceeded all expectations. We took a floating tiki bar to Crab Island. Captain Mike was wonderful and made the experience so much fun! He interacted with us the entire time and made the trip a memorable experience. I definitely recommend doing this especially if you’ve been on regular boats before and want something more intimate and unique.

    My husband and I got married less than a year ago and my engagement ring means everything to me, so when it fell off in the first 10 minutes of being at crab island I was devastated. From the moment I felt it fall off, Our boat captain was in the water with a crab net helping us look for it! Captain Sam and her husband, who just happens to be another captain, were so dedicated to helping us and it was actually Sam who found it after almost an hour of searching! Sam saved my tiki trip from being the trip where I lost my engagement ring and made it a funny story to tell. If you read this Sam, thank you so much for your kindness yesterday! We’ve gone on these tikis three separate times with three separate captains and Sam by far is the best!

    What a great adventure this was! We absolutely loved loved LOVED Captain Murray.
    The 3 hour cruise was just the perfect amount of time and we enjoyed the “tid bits” of history, restaurant suggestions and humor Captain Murray provided. Beautiful scenery and lord of activities provided when you get to Crab Island! Highly recommend !

    Had booked this event for 4 people on may 25th. Boat operator called me and told me the trip was being canceled because of bad weather and asked if I wanted to cancel or reschedule. Since rescheduling was not an option for us I requested to cancel. I was told it would take a couple of days to refund. It has been 2 weeks and I still have not received refund

    You will need to contact TripAdvisor for your refund. We never even had your funds to begin with. Everything was canceled and notification of refund was processed on our end. If you would've booked directly it would've been received faster.

    Very disappointed…Our Tiki headed out to crab island and half way there our captain decided it was too windy, turned around and headed back into the harbor. Due to weather the wind was 12-14 that entire day, it was sunny 68 degrees, as they did not warn us that we wouldn’t be making it out to crab island or adventuring around. We did not get to go to crab island on the 3 hour cruise. So the captain decided to park across from their Tiki place on the harbor shore and said we’ll just sit here. After sitting there for an hour, I asked the captain if we are going cruisin and he said no we are going to stay here the entire time. I told him I didn’t pay $500 for my family to just sit here as we thought this was a Tiki Adventure. He then went to talk to the other Tiki captains which we didn’t know they all try to stick together. When he finally came back 20 minutes later he said we’ll cruise the harbor. Not what we expected at all, very dissatisfied with this Cruisin Tiki Crab Island Adventure company. And you get no money back. I even had 10% off coupon I forgot to bring when I first got there so I gave it to them after the trip and they would not honor it even after the disappointing trip. We were very dissatisfied.

    A group of Mom's spent 3 hours on our Tiki Cruise to Crab Island and had a blast. Cruisin Tikis Destin was very organized from the minute we booked our adventure. Everything you read from the description and pictures is spot on what we experienced. All the Captain's seemed to be great - we had Captain Hunter who was amazing ... very knowledgeable and willing to share details on any of the local questions we asked, but also left us to ourselves to enjoy our time together. I would highly recommend this if you are looking for a great experience whether it be high energy or laid back.

    Wonderful time. On time departure, excellent attention to guests. No complaints es at all. Harrison was our captain and he was so nice and attentive. If you’re looking for an out of the ordinary experience, book now. Everyone else will be riding a pontoon and boom you’ll be the center of attention riding a Tiki.

    The crab island trip was so much fun ! I would absolutely book it for the 3 hrs vs. the other tours (1.5 hrs) We had Capt Ryan, he was super friendly and was down for a good time ! I highly recommend him if you're able to choose ! The byob is nice, they provide you ice and cups. We went in July, so the water was super clear and was about waist deep. Once you dock there are plenty of bars and restaurants to hang at in the area , most of them have live music.

    Our cruisin tiki adventure to Crab Island was awesome! We had Captain Sam and I suggest everyone call and request her if you can. This was our first trip out so she answered all of our questions. She blew up floats, played our music, handed us drinks, and made our time out there perfect. It’s a little more pricey than other ways to get to Crab Island, but the privacy and personal captain was well worth the money. Book at least a week in advance, because they fill up fast. We will definitely be going back and requesting Captain Sam every time!
