Sandwiched between Alvin's Island and Legendary Marina, Crab Island Watersports opens its doors daily to help visitors explore the surrounding bayous, intercoastal canals, and Choctawhatchee Bay. Rent a pontoon and sidestep the hurdles of boat ownership, such as storage and constantly having to whistle the Gilligan's Island theme song, or hop onto a waverunner to zip from beach to beach. Up to 600 feet above the water, parasailers drift over the Gulf of Mexico's jade tides while trying to spot passing ocean life beneath their feet. For an up-close experience with these maritime tenants, morning, afternoon, and sunset tours coast out to areas where dolphins often entertain visitors by jumping out of the water in slow motion to advertise their new basketball shoes.
