    Amazing chill day

    we had a wonderful time with the pups on this cruise!! highly recommend! from start to finish it was pawfect. we booked a 4 hr excursion and had Captain Robbie ( absolutely amazing) if you go request him, you won’t be disappointed. we stopped at 2 beaches so the pups could get out and then crab island, where you can get everything from souvenirs, floaties, food, drinks ( bring your own adult beverages, the only thing they can’t sell at crab island) it was amazing. we had a chill day, but that’s all up to you. we will definitely do again!!

    Amazing day with Captain Robbie!

    We booked with Crab Island Cruises, specifically Captain Robbie, because of the great reviews. The day totally exceeded our expectations. Our two Yorkies, Lucy and Mabel had the best time! Captain Robbie took us to a beach where they could play and swim, made sure they had plenty of water, and treated us all like royalty. It’s obvious he has a lot of experience, loves what he does, and is a dog lover himself. We will definitely be returning to Crab Island Cruises and our favorite Captain!

    Dogs best day ever

    With Florida beaches not being pet friendly to tourists we decided to take our Frankie out on a cruise. Jake was so accommodating to our 4 legged boy and took him to the perfect spot for beach and water fun.

    Nirvana Pontoon Rental in Fort Walton Beach

    We just spend the day in crab island. We rented our boat from Nirvana Pontoon Rental in Fort Walton. They are super dog friendly. No extra charge for the dog. Very good pricing. We had a blast and would visit crab island again and rent from this company again.

    Cruising with dogs…

    We took our Crab Island cruise with our three pups. Captain Robbie welcomed them with open arms. They swam with us but when they got tired Captain Robbie sat with them while we continued to enjoy our time at Crab Island. If you want to cruise to Crab Island and want to bring your pups, book with Captain Robbie!

    Captain Robbie

    Captain Robbie was the best!! We brought our dog Achilles for his first boat ride/beach trip & he made sure he enjoyed himself and always had water in his bowl when he looked like he wanted to drink the ocean water. Robbie was so informative about everything and also took us to a beach where Achilles could run around in the sand & play where it was less crowded than Crab Island. We were really skeptical about bringing our dog on the trip but we’re so glad we did! This was our first time going to Destin but we’ll definitely be back & we’ll be bringing our dog back and booking with Captain Robbie again for sure!

    Captain Robbow was great!

    This was by far the best activity on our entire trip. We wanted to take the dogs somewhere fun for them and Robbie made that possible with crab island cruises. It was just us two and our 2 dogs. They had a blast and made many friends out there. I wish I could post pictures of them on the boat!

    Great Experience!

    I was so excited to bring my dog along on this 4 hour boat tour! Robbie was our captain and was wonderful. He was extremely personable and made the experience awesome. My dog got to experience his first boat ride, swim in the ocean, and run in the sand. I highly recommend going, especially if you’re wanting to bring your pup along on your vacation.

    This was an awesome adventure

    I can not say enough about this company. We had boat #5 with Captain Robbie. He was so excited we brought our dog on board his boat. He even made sure she had water and had a dog bowl. He took us to a special beach where Beasley could have her first swimming experience. I found this company with this app and you will not be disappointed if you book a cruise. It has been the highlight of our trip so far. Great dog loving company!!
