$135 for a 90-Minute Crabbing Trip for Up to Six ($300 Value)

During crabbing excursions, a 24-foot Carolina Skiff ferries private parties of up to six to Bluffton’s back creeks, where they use chicken necks as bait to lure in blue crabs. After snatching the crustaceans from the water by hand, the group can keep whatever they can hold for the trip back to shore. Though all crabbing equipment is provided, passengers should bring sunscreen, hats, towels, food and drinks, and a camera with which to immortalize their triumphant crab walks.

May River Excursions

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.

Our captain was very helpful to our group and made it enjoyable for all of us! We would definitely go back! It was nice that he pointed out the dolphins along the way our crabbing tour.

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!!
