What you'll do

Craving the freshest possible seafood? Learn the tricks of crabbing with a Charleston native who’s been doing it for years. This is a land based experience.

You will meet at a dock on a beautiful river to master the delicate art of throwing a cast net. You can even set bait and fish—it’s as hands-on as you’d like. Don’t worry about having the right skills; there’ll be plenty of activities available for everyone. Anyone 16 and up will require a saltwater fishing license.

The freshest seafood is what you can catch yourself, so expect to nab a crab, shrimp, and a variety of fish, too.
Other things to note
Everyone must wear a mask. There are no boats involved. We can catch and release or you can keep anything of legal size. We follow all South Carolina Department of Natural Resources rules and regulations.

I am a proud Charleston native with a passion for the outdoors and marine life. My family has been crabbing and casting for fun and food for generations. Crabbing has been therapeutic for me and gave me an outlet when I quit smoking, helping me become a healthier person in more ways than one. Then, when a friend started a Facebook page called "Casual Crabbing with Tia" and posted photos of my adventures, people started asking to come along and flocking to the docks. Within a few hours, those who start off as strangers end up as friends, and I love getting to share my passion with others.

Even though the crabs weren't biting that day, Tia and all the others still made the experience extra special. They were very personable and made sure each person had a great experience. We feel much more knowledgeable about crabbing, sea creatures, shrimp, nets, and more. Highly recommend the experience for ALL ages.

I had a fantastic time crabbing! Tia, Art & Courtney are knowledgeable, helpful & ensured everyone was engaged & had a hands on experience! Not only were they wonderful guides & teachers, they also played photographer & sent me 70+ pics of my adventure! I highly recommend crabbing with Tia & team if you're in Charleston - she teaches as if you were crabbing like a local with personal & individualized attention - the team gets an A+++ rating!
