Had a wonderful time with Captain B and Buddy! They were entertaining and wonderful hosts, but kept our safety their main concern. We had a 2 month old baby with us & she was safe the whole time. Our whole family enjoyed the trip. I highly recommend them!

We had a great time with Captain B (Brandon)! We travelled with 2 little kids and we are non-swimmers. He was very friendly, entertaining, and made us feel safe. There was great music, drinks, and snacks. He took his time to show us dolphins and we saw probably over 40! We will definitely come back!

We had such a blast doing this! It's about a 30 min boat ride there and back and then you get to play for 2 hours in the water. Only downer is that the vendors there no longer can sell alcohol and they don't have the large inflatables anymore. But we had so much fun and would definitely do it again if we come back! Brandon and B were great! They made the ride there entertaining! Definitely recommend

This was the best part of our trip to Destin. The kids had a blast. Captain Dave and Deck Hand Buddy were amazing. They made our boat ride worth the money for sure!

This was an absolutely, outstanding experience! I loved every minute from before we even got onto the boat up until we returned to the dock! They played music to keep us entertained on the way there and back, made sure everyone was safe, and all around made sure all of their customers were having fun! I would definitely recommend Crab Island Water Taxi to anyone! I will gladly return if every time is like the one I experienced! Thank you Captain Zach, Co-Captain B, and Tracy for making this an unforgettable trip to Crab Island, Destin!

Great experience 😍
Brandon and Michael both were very friendly and welcoming. I was on a solo trip to Destin but in this boat I felt like I am hanging out with my friends. They offered snacks and drinks without any extra cost.
Michael’s dog Zoey was fun to play with, we had a family with dogs as well on the boat, we all gelled well and had the best time.

Great time with Big B and Dory!
Spent a great day on the pontoon with 2 of the greatest hosts one could ever hope for. We had a group of 16 (8 adults and 8 kids) so we had the whole pontoon, which fit us all very comfortably. Upon arrival we were graciously greeted by Brandon (Big B) and Dory, who led us upon a wonderful day of cruising, docking at a secluded beach, snorkeling, playing beach football, hanging out at Crab Island, eating and drinking.
The boat was fully stocked with plenty of snacks and non-alcoholic drinks, and we were welcome to bring whatever alcoholic drinks we pleased as well.
Big B and Dory told us many great stories of the area, fishing tales, and made sure the kids learned about certain sea-life.
Everybody had a great time and I cannot recommend them enough for their customer service (they made sure everyone was always happy, and provided suggestions on what to do).
At the end, they took us for an extra 30-45 minutes on a guided dolphin cruise.
Great day all around!

Affordable & Great
All credit goes to Brandon, Our tour guide. He was the best tour guide we had. The trip was affordable and great. I had 2 infants on a stroller. The guide helped us a lot dealing with them. The last 45 minutes, we chased dolphins and we saw a lot of them.

A place to visit!!
My cousin and I took a girls trip from Monday through Friday and crab Island was our favorite part of the entire trip!! The taxi shuttle people were professional and extremely friendly. They helped us take our cooler on and off the boat and were very hands-on with everything we needed the entire trip. Although it wasn’t part of the trip, the taxi boat guides took us dolphin sightseeing after lounging all day and crab Island. It was a great way to end the trip. Highly encourage utilizing the water taxi trip and spending as long as you possibly can at crab Island. The were just so friendly in crab island! We got discounts on merchandise and slid down someone’s boat slides! So much fun!!

Big B and Dory (sp?) were the shiz. We had a bomb day, they played some good music, they were super cool. We were on time, everything was chill, everyone was helpful. We have zero complaints. Well do it again next time we visit!

Best water taxi around!
My 2 best friends and I celebrated my 40th and had the best time! Captain B and Dory were an amazing team. Very informative, fun and courteous! B played awesome tunes and protected us from the jellyfish! 😂 MJ is incredible and shuttled us in the party wagon back to our resort. Will definitely visit again! Look no further this is where it’s at☀️🦀🏖

CRAB ISLAND WATER TAXI NEVER DISAPPOINTS ‼️
My best friend and I went out on the Crab Island Excursion in May of 2020 and we had an absolute blast with Mike (the owner) and Captain Zack‼️ We had so much fun I came back for a little vacation with my husband and took him out on the excursion with the Crab Island Water Taxi ‼️ This time we had B and Captain Bell and once again they did not disappoint we had a freaking blast‼️ We will be back in September 2020 and definitely will be using the Crab Island Water Taxi AGAIN ‼️‼️

Best Time Ever
One of the best things we did on our vacation! The captain and B were spectacular! We did have a little mishap and didn’t receive the email to the meeting time and location. We were late and they accommodated well. The owner met us with warm greetings and from that moment on we new we were in for fun times!!! Highly recommend doing this with these guys. They go above and beyond to make sure you are having the time of your life !

4th of July Weekend
From beginning to end EVERYONE was smiling, helpful and friendly! Captain Zack and first mate Brandon were first class! I did a LOT of research before scheduling a company to boat us out to crab island. BENEFITS: 1. the staff is excellent and experienced. 2. Not every vessel has a bathroom on board, but THEY DO (important when you are in the middle of a large body of water). 3. When pricing I found that they offer the following that others do not: shuttle from the office to the launch area, bathroom, unlimited drinks and snacks for VIP (some companies offer nothing). 4. Price was very reasonable when compared to others. I was able to do some snorkeling and saw some cool fishes and crabs. The music playlist was family friendly. Mostly we just chilled out and enjoyed the beauty and laid back vibes and conversation. For us, the length of time (3 hours) was perfect. I would book again with them!
We look forward to seeing you out on the water with us. Feel free to book online and check out our tours and more reviews below.
