I would guess no, because it says "do not submerse" (in water).

I would suggest a regular aquatic heater, stack rocks and/or driftwood that reaches above the water line, so the crab has somewhere to go to get out of the water.

Water and Electicity are dangerous together. DO NOT use it anywhere near water. This item is design to go in a Gecko's or Lizard's tank on a sand bottom.
There are lots of Submersible heaters that can be used in water. There are a coupld of Betta tank heaters that can go under gravel too.... just learning about these myself...
Here is one...
Amazon.com: Hydor MINI HEATER Aquarium Heater 7.5 Watts for Tanks 2-5 gal: Pet Supplies Amazon.com: Hydor MINI HEATER Aquarium Heater 7.5 Watts for Tanks 2-5 gal: Pet Supplies

and also one that woud technically go into the bottom of a fish bowl underneath the gravel. Zoo Med Betta Therm Mini Size Betta Bowl Heater - Heaters & Accessories - Fish - PetSmart

I have yet to find either of these in a store in Ontario... maybe you will have better luck finding one or buy online.
