Excellent!! Would do again! We had a great time hand crabbing yesterday! Captain Chris was friendly and very knowledgeable. He answered all or questions with lots of patience. The boat was spacious with plenty of room for 6 people. The river and surrounding scenery was beautiful. Molly in the front office was a pleasure to work with. We caught 10 Blue Crabs and took them to Hudson's on the Docks where they cooked them and showed us how to eat them. A wonderful day!!

This was an amazing experience! Captain Chris was friendly and knowledgeable. We went in January, so the crabs were in the deeper water, so we did not get to hand catch the crabs. Captain Chris, though, had set out ample crab traps for us, and we caught way more than expected! We mostly caught blue crabs, and we also caught a stone crab and a whelk (similar to a conch). My husband and I were the only ones out there that day, so we had plenty of crabs to keep. We were able to go to a restaurant on Hilton Head, and they cooked up the crab and whelk for us for a very good price...absolutely amazing! I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone visiting this area...we plan on going back again if we are ever in the area!

My family and I had a great time with Captain Chris. He took us out to his fishing spot where we caught a ton of crabs. The boat ride was fun, the fishing was fun, and cooking the crabs and eating them was a lot of fun. I totally recommend this!

From Our Editors

The Shoemaker clan has been sailing around the East Coast since the 1600s, making the family as native to South Carolina as the state's alligators and seaside bluffs resembling John C. Calhoun. After inheriting an in-depth aquatic knowledge from his father, who spent 25 years as a commercial fisherman, Captain Chris Shoemaker—a Coast Guard–licensed captain—conveys that love of the water to even more generations by leading fishing, shrimping, and crabbing excursions on his 24-foot Carolina Skiff boat. Collectively known as May River Excursions, Captain Chris and his crew make twice-daily trips to Daufuskie Island, a rustic, historical idyll with a single schoolhouse, dirt roads, and wild bald eagles, armadillos, and alligators that still comprise the island's local constabulary. The guides also lead regular 90-minute tours along the May River in search of ospreys, egrets, and dolphins, always including a history lesson about the country surrounding the towns of Bluffton and Hilton Head.
