Sailing Charter in Destin


(850) 830-3427


Our charters are by the hour flat rate for up to 6 people.  All reservations are non refundable, however if weather results in cancelation we do offer a raincheck.

$125.00/ Hour (2 hour minimum)



Our boat is berthed in Shalimar, it is a bit of a drive from Destin but allows us to offer a better less crowded experience,  and parking is no problem!

The SpiderCrab is a 34 foot Gemini 105 catamaran that offers the smoothest sailing experience you can find.  This boat does not "heel" over with the wind and is perfect for those wishing to sail without the discomfort of a  monohull.

SpiderCrab Charters offers by the hour day sailing on beautiful Choctawhatchee bay in the Destin/Fort Walton Beach area.  Come Sail Away with us!!


While we do want to personalize your adventure and can accommodate most requests for sailing area/activities it is ultimately  the Captain's decision for safety reasons.  The Captain will make all calls regarding weather, wave conditions and other factors determining if the charter will have to be cancelled.  His decision is final and not negotiable.

Your crew:

Karl and Dorothy Marusak will be the crew for your adventure on the water.  Karl is a licensed captain with a long history of sailing and boating.  Dodi is a very experienced first-mate. Together we can make your experience a memorable one.

Come Sail Away with us!

She said Yes!!​

We are up and operating!  We know many of you are cautious about travel and being around other people in this trying time.  Let us assure you we are deep cleaning our boat after all charters and take this issue VERY seriously.  All customers are welcome to wear a face covering if they so choose and soon we will have some to offer as well.  Our maximum capacity of 6 falls within the recommended gathering guidelines. Come on out and join us for a great day on the water.

Some of the activities you can enjoy are:

Sunset cruising - we have the best sunsets anywhere!

Dolphin watching - while no guarantees are made we very often see playful dolphins in our waters. (I saw one at the Marina !!)

Crab Island party - Crab Island is a unique place where all the locals and tourists go to party on the water.  It is a shallow sand bar area (used to be an island) that is perfect for children and adults alike.  There are waterslides, music (live and recorded) and other attractions available there.  Our shallow draft allows us to pull up close to the sandbar for easy access!

Leisurely sailing on the bay - for those of you who just want to escape it all let us give you a leisurely tour of the bay, the salt air and warm breezes are sure to melt away the stresses of daily living.
