My name is Alex and crabbing is a true passion of mine. I have teamed up with like minded individuals to provide truly unique experiences that are both useful and fun! We offer to teach you all the intricate skills to be able to successfully and competently learn The Art of Crabbing on your own!
I love cooking and am an avid outdoorsman. I think too many people have a disconnect between their food and where it comes from. My goal is to to meet new people, enjoy time being by the ocean, teach those willing about west coast fishing practices and harvest it's bounty with respect to mother nature. I am born and raised from San Francisco and have spent most of my adult life traveling throughout the US and internationally so I have a lot to share.
We will meet at one of various locations throughout the bay to catch some of the best crabs the world has to offer. I'll provide insights on the nature of crabbing and fishing in the bay area, what crabs like to eat and why the bay is home to a large and distinctly diverse ecosystem. Once we arrive at the specified location I'll provide a thorough overview of the equipment and tactics needed to catch as many legal crab as we possibly can within the allotted time frame. I also will provide instruction on cooking the crab and cleaning the crab.
I'll share my deep insight to how this has been an avid hobby of mine for over a decade and all the different types of wildlife recognized in the bay. If your as much as a foodie as I am please ask me anything about food (specifically seafood) and I will share my culinary insight for the best way to prepare truly delicious meals.
When inquiring about packages, please keep in mind there are different restrictions at different locations. In San Francisco we can only catch Pacific Rock crab (Red crab) & Brown Rock Crab which can get very big and are more plentiful than other locations. Unfortunately, we cannot take Dungeness crab from inside of the San Francisco Bay this location as it is a protected breeding ground. San Francisco is recommended for beginners, bigger groups and children.
Crabbing along the Pacific coastline allows us to take Dungeness crab, the most coveted crabs in the Bay Area and the west coast in general. Most people choose this experience to catch Dungeness but keep in mind there are conditions on keeping them and the likiehood of catching a "keeper" is less than the other crabs in San Francisco. The minimum size requirement for Dungeness is 5 & 3/4" but can be well worth it when you get a "keeper"! I recommend this location for adults and people with experience fishing/crabbing.
Regardless of what you decide works best for you and your group we will accommodate your requests and needs. We don't have posted availability for private groups and the only certain availability posted is through Airbnb experiences. If you wanted to book a certain package/number of guests, had questions or unsure about anything please send us a message using the contact us messaging system below!
Looking forward to hearing from you!
