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:
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. Crabbing has been therapeutic for me and gave me an outlet to become a healthier person in more ways than one. Then, a friend started a Facebook page called "Casual Crabbing with Tia" and documented my adventures, soon people started asking to join me on the dock. Within hours, those who start off as strangers end up as friends, and I love getting to share my passion with others.
Now, Casual Crabbing with Tia has grown and my great and long time friend, Art, has joined in hosting. Your experience will be hosted by Me or Art, and if you're lucky both! In addition to Art, some amazing dockhands have joined the crew as well. When you come out to the dock you will meet an amazing team of people with a deep love of wildlife and fun who want to share that with you!

Where you'll be

We'll meet at a private dock and pier in downtown Charleston. It’s a gorgeous dock on the water’s edge and has one of the best sunset views in the city.

I have been on guided experiences all over the world and this was by far the best. Tia and her crew are amazing!! Please don’t miss out on one of the best experiences you can have.

Tia is absolutely amazing! From the moment of arrival through air dropping photos (because iPhones are better 😉). The whole team was funny, thoughtful and taught me so much about crab and the ecosystem. Truly amazing experience at an outstanding value.

Such an amazing experience! Tia and the crew were so hands on and informative. I left out feeling like a real crabber lol. I even caught a sting ray during the fishing portion of the experience!

Tia and her crew were fantastic! We had kids ages 6-15 and there is something for everyone. Tia taught us all about the crabbin life and we learned so much today. We even brought home enough crab, which Tia cleaned for us, for a nice dinner. They even take photos and air drop them to you so you can just enjoy the experience. Highly recommend booking with Tia!

Tia and Art were fantastic at "meeting us where we were". Our kids, 11 yr old son and 9 yr old daughter, were initially hesitant about touching live crabs and casting nets. Tia and Art were patient and disarming, such that both of my kids ended up trying everything and feeling successful. We would strongly recommend this experience to families visiting Charleston.
