Sailing Daily from Shelter Cover Marina

After a short cruise from Shelter Cove Harbour narrated by your experienced captain so you don’t miss any sights along the way, the Crabber J anchors up in the shallow saltwater marshes of Hilton Head.

Our crabby crew will offer a brief demonstration on how to catch the little critters and then … let the games begin! Each passenger is supplied with their own crabbing equipment, and whoever catches the most crabs by the time the bell rings wins the official (and much coveted) Crabber J t-shirt! Ohhhh yeah.

Learn the basics of crabbing and toss the little critters back into the water, or the crew can fill you in on which types of crabs you can keep.

If you choose the fireworks option, after crabbing, we watch the fireworks from the water! One of the best views around!

Come show us what you’ve got and catch some crabs! Book your Hilton Head crabbing trip online today.
