    The tour operator has provided the following answers to customers’ questions.
    Where do we depart from for the Tiki Sunset Cruise?
    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 Tiki Sunset Cruise?
    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 Tiki Sunset Cruise?
    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 Tiki Sunset Cruise?
    When we have groups larger than 6 people, we offer "tandem" cruises where guests can divide into two (or more) Tikis.

      BYOB
      We had a great time at crab island. We were not clear about BYOB but will definitely bring our own alcohol next time. We were under the impression drinks would be served with the service. However, other than that, we had an excellent time

      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!

      The best way to visit Crab Island
      We had a wonderful time with Tiki Cruises and our Capitan Mike! He took the time to make our trip enjoyable and safe! I loved how he was very safety conscious as we had two kiddos with us (5 & 8). He also knew the best spot to be at on the island. I would recommend Tiki Cruises as a MUST DO for anyone visiting the area!

      Good overall
      The trip was nice the area was nice, even though we didn’t get to see the clear turquoise water but we will be back again. I think if you are planning this come with friends and book the whole Tiki. Most people brought enough people to fill their whole tiki. My husband and I were matched with two other couples, they seemed to be very introverted… I tried multiple times to start up conversations but they just gave like one line answers… that and you captain dictate how engaging your trip will be as it’s like 20-30 minutes to get there. I decided to just enjoy the scenery because the captain also wasn’t very engaging either. Some of the other captains seemed like they were interacting with their group more. I had a great time, just would come with my crew next time because if not you really just might be stuck with people that don’t engage/converse and might end up listening to music that’s not ur jam. No control over any of it but like I said if you come with 6 of ur own people you can really have a good time. They also have things for sale out there at crab island, like ice cream, nachos, t shirts, fruits, coconuts and a bunch of other stuff (all not guaranteed but don’t hurt to bring some cash if your interested). Crab island is a vibe and the water is not too cold and not to hot, we were there at low turning into high but it didn’t clear out before we had to leave so I will definitely have to come back… with my six people haha. Also if you want to ride together make sure u book the same tiki we have a group that had just bought the tickets on different tikis thinking they would be assigned together, nope the tiki you buy a ticket for is the tiki u ride so they rode separately but were able to be together at the destination. Just FYI. ☺️

    My wife and I took the sunset cruise last weekend (2-1-20). The weather was a little chilly but we still thought it would be fun. We met 2 other couples for the first time when we boarded the Tiki Boat and did not stop laughing the whole trip. Captain Sam was very professional and a blast to visit with. We had several things blow over the side and it was no big deal to back track and retrieve our hats, cups and whatever else we lost. It's BYOB and snacks.
    The wind was a little much to go out into the bay so we went to plan B and ducked into a few canals and cruised past some large homes and boats. Some of the residents came out to rasie a glass to our group.
    On our way back to the dock we spotted dolphins and everyone enjoyed that a lot.
    I would highly recommend this trip to any adults that visit the Destin Area.
    We are planning our next trip back and this will be on our do do list again.

    Thanks Again Captain Sam for a GREAT Trip.

    Ken and Susan thank you so much for your review! We will definitely pass on your kind words to Captain Sam and remember when you book us again, if you give us a call we can try to make Sam your captain again if you'd prefer. Looking forward to taking you out maybe in warmer weather this summer.

    My hubby & I were in Destin celebrating our 27th Wedding Anniversary the 1st week of October 2022. We knew we wanted to do a sunset cruise while we were there & we heard about the Tiki Sunset Cruise. Although it did cost a little more than some of the other cruises, we liked the idea of something not quite so crowded to enjoy the sunset so we decided to give it a try. It was absolutely worth it!!! It was a slow, peaceful cruise with the two of us, our captain and 4 other people. We went out into the harbor, out to crab island & watched the sunset. It was absolutely breathtaking!!! The cruise was 1.5 hours long. It is BYOB & snacks! Just a heads up in case you might want to jump in the water while you're out on crab island, the Captain did ask if any of us wanted to get in the water, but none of us had our swimsuits on. The captain was very nice & laid back. We met some lovely people on the cruise & enjoyed some good music. We will definitely be doing this again next time we're in Destin!!!

    We started off the cruise with dark clouds and a slight wind going, not a good sign that this was going to be a pleasant experience. While the other boat boarded guests, our captain made us stay on the dock to check the weather. To me, this was an early hint of how great of a captain we would have.

    Once Captain Al cleared us onto the boat, we headed out into the harbor. Being a longtime local, he steered us away from a tourist trap mid restaurant and into a much better one. The calamari was the best I've had too! His opinions on places nearby were very helpful to those just here to visit.

    Further along the harbor nearing the bridge, Captain Al gave us an interesting science lesson in the mechanics of the water moving around the bridge. He told us the history of the harbor while we got to see an awesome view from under the bridge.

    Once out on the water, he put some nice music on and the sunset barely peeked through the clouds! It was an ethereal moment. He offered to take pictures of our group and was more than accommodating with our drinks and snacks. In the end, our cruise was amazing. Beautiful view, great captain, definitely an experience I recommend.

    My wife and I decided to hop on board for a different view of the bay, and this sunset cruise was just as advertised. Capt. Moon Doggie was fun and informative about the the Destin FL area. You could also see that his piloting skills were safe without being a wet blanket for a good time. We will return and share this adventure with friends on our next trip.

    We went on a Sunset tiki cruise while we were here in Destin. My sister-in-law got married on the cruise by Captain Al. He performed a beautiful ceremony, while playing their music in the background, just as the sun was setting. He was so very accommodating to our wishes and spent extra care to ensure the tiki boat was positioned perfectly for the sunset behind them. Thank you Captain Al for making this a memorable experience. Cruisin Tiki cruises will be one of our activities every time we are here, and we will always ask for Captain Al!

    Captain Al was fantastic! My sister got married on the tiki boat sunset cruise and the Captain made everything perfect. This was the very first wedding on the tiki cruise and he performed the ceremony. He put their special music on the speakers, helped us with taking pictures, positioned the boat beautifully for the sunset, and made the whole thing work out great. Because of Al we will definitely book another tiki cruise. We come to Destin 1 or 2 times a year and will now be tiki cruise regulars.

    Our captain (honestly can’t remember his name) played our wedding song on the Tiki Hut speaker when we watched the sunset. It definitely made for an very amazing and memorable night. He even tried his hardest for us to be able to see as many dolphins as possible and sure enough, we saw at least 5 or 6!!

    We had a great time! Captain Chan was so friendly and knowledgeable about the area. He even gave us a wonderful dinner recommendation. He stopped the boat so everyone could have their pictures taken then ended the night at crab island to watch the beautiful sunset. Absolutely perfect!

    Highly recommend the sunset tiki boat trip! Even though we had a cloudy evening and no sunset to be seen, our boat driver made the experience a great one. We were able to see many dolphins and the harbor lights after sunset. The harbor waters were calm and made for a non-choppy ride. There are no convenient restrooms at the dock area, so I suggest using one before arriving.

    If you find yourself in Destin, and don't book a Cruisin' Tiki Tour, then you are totally missing out! My sister & I visited Destin last week, and though it was a little chilly & overcast, it didn't matter- we had the absolute best time on our Cruisin' Tiki Sunset Tour. It made our whole trip!

    The water is the most beautiful turqouise you can imagine, and on our cruise we saw more dolphins than we could count. We were on the water for about an hour and a half, cruisin along drinking some beers, listening to tunes & dancing on the side of the boat.

    But the best part of our trip was CAPTAIN SAM!!! It honestly felt like you were hanging out with an old friend you haven't seen in awhile. Not only is she knowledgeable about Destin in general, but she has the most infectious personality & we just had the best time with her. If you book a Tiki Cruise, try to get on her Tiki because SHE IS FANTASTIC!!!
