Crab Island

I keep hearing about this and have been to Destin several years but don't know anything about it. Where is it? Is it something we have to book like the Sea Blaster or we just go there on our own? Thanks

Half the area is partiers and the half to the east is families on the weekend. Lots of kids playing in the water. During the week it is just mainly tourists with families out there - no bands - party going on.

If you don't want to rent a pontoon (1.party of two, 2. no one has ever driven boat, 3. fiscally irresponsible to spend that kind of money for two people) is there an alternate way to get there?

You could rent a jet ski to get there. You can't swim to get there. The water taxi won't drop you off.

Water at Crab Island looks like the Mississippi River right now.

That was because of all the rain we had, water is emerald green now.

CI Mike is right - the water was gorgeous last Sunday. When the tide starts going out it clouds up a bit but for most of the day had the beautiful emerald green surrounding us.
