We provide a cooler full of ice available upon request for your food and beverages. Crab Island does not have any adult beverages for sale, so make sure to pack all that you want. Rates are $135* an hour Monday- Thursday and $150 an hour Friday-Sunday & Holidays with a four (4) hour minimum. Additional hours can be requested at the same rate above for each additional hour, if time is available. Gratuity not included in the hourly rate and is typically 15 – 20%.  You are welcome to bring along your own food and beverages, but please remember storage space is limited for additional coolers.

    We had a wonderful trip! The owners were very accommodating and shared a lot of helpful information about the area. We spent a little time at crab island sandbar then went cruising to see dolphins which our 4 year old loved! Highly recommend and would book again.

    Overall experience was absolutely amazing! Not only was the trio perfect, they were very accommodating to our pup. Jumped in full force when he became sick during our trip as well. We plan to come back when the weather warms up a bit and enjoy crab island during the hot summer days. Esther is so kind and welcoming! I recommend booking with them 5 out of 5 stars
