Where are you located?
We are located in Shelter Cove Marina on Dock "C". Please park at the marina store and walk down to the boat. We ask that you arrive 30 minutes prior to departure to ensure you make it and we leave on time.
What will we catch?
The Crabber J is focused on catching our local blue crabs. We will use the local Gullah method of chicken necks on the bottom of our shallow water creeks. We will provide everything you need to have a good time on the boat. We will release everything we catch during your crabbing trip.
How old do you need to be to participate in this event?
We can take anyone of any age! Yes that means we can also take infants and kids of all ages on this fun crabbing adventure together.
Where will we crab? Are the waters safe?
We are very lucky to be located near some of the best crabbing areas on the Island. Shelter Cove marina is only a mile away from where we will crab in the shallow waters of Broad Creek. We will drop lines near where our local crabbers drop cages to catch our local blue crabs. We will catch and release all of our crabs caught on the trip!
My kids not going to crab do we still need to pay for them?
The crabber J is licensed to carry 30 passengers and 2 crew on every tour. The Coast Guard counts infants, kids, moms and dads all as individual passengers and thus are taking a limited spot on the boat. We have to charge and count every individual onboard.
Do you have a bathroom on the boat?
Due to our limited size we don't have a traditional bathroom on the boat. We do have solutions to emergencies and will accommodate any way possible. We always recommend using the restrooms next to the boat before departing on your crabbing adventure.
