Great and entertaining way to go out on a boat and have some fun fishing for crab. All equipment is provided and two crew members assist passengers. Fun outing. Would recommend.

My parents(65), kids(3,6), wife and I had a fun time. We all caught at least 1 crab and wife caught 4. It was the most on boat. Got a free t-shirt. Kids had a lot of fun. 30 total people on trip. Some people did not catch any. A lot of luck, little skill needed. The boat has deck hand... More

This is our second year on the Crabber J and so far it has not disappointed. Last year Tyler was the first mate. This year he was our Captain and he did a great job. My son congratulated him on his promotion. They took their time explaining the wildlife we saw and made sure each and every kid had a... More

This is a great mini trip for smaller kids 4-7 in age. Almost everyone cough at least 1 crab. The staff were very friendly and took the time to let everyone hold a crab and touch them. We also saw several dolphins which they would slow down for so we could all get a good look. Overall, I would book... More

Saw many dolphins and different birds on the trip .. Caught only one crab (but it was windy) Read other reviews, might try those suggested (coastal discovery,) next time. But with this you get really kind/laid back staff, great nature views, and crabbing..

Really enjoyed this excursion. I grew up crabbing, but had never taken my children. After some positive reviews and the idea of buying all the crabbing necessities for one day, I opted for the ease of Crabber J's. I wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. Captain was fantastic with the kids as well as adults, we had a nice... More

I brought my nephews on this cruise out of Shelter Cove and we all had a blast! The boys were so excited to be on the water catching crabs. Our captain George was one of the nicest guys ever! He was so helpful and informative. We even had the added bonus of seeing dolphins and got some great photos. Will... More
