Shrimping & Crabbing Charters

Grandpas Crabbing Tours are available for two hour, four hour, six or full day charters. You choose the amount of time you want to spend on the water. Available for up to 6 passengers and the crew with all the licenses and equipment you need. The shrimp and crabbing tours are designed for the calm waters of the sound. You will leave from Wanchese Harbor and head to the fishing grounds. Together you will drop the net into the waters and troll for your catch. Everyone lends a hand once it’s time to pull in the net.

Dumping the net onto the sorting table is when the fun really begins. While shrimp and crab may be your target species, you never know what you might catch in your net. Captain Russell loves to share stories about each species as you comb through your catch to see what you’ve got. This is where Captain Russell’s experience and storytelling gifts shine through. You will see the glow in his eyes as he explains what each creature eats, swims and more. The kids love the stories. This is truly a charter for the whole family unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. You will create memories that will last a lifetime and since you keep what you catch… you will probably have a delicious, fresh dinner to boot!
