****Price is per trip and includes up to 6 people.**** We will be leaving the dock and heading out into the bay to haul up Stone Crab Traps! This is a true Floridian Tradition! Stone Crab Claw meat is some of the most Delicious of all the oceans gifts! After hauling the traps we will head to one of the islands to cook up the Claws right on the Beach! This is truly an unforgettable trip!
I am a US Coast Guard licensed Captain and have been boating in the waters surrounding Clearwater Beach for the past 30 years, 10 years as a professional Captain. Growing up on the Gulf Coast, I was immersed in the marine environment at a very young age and quickly gained an appreciation for all marine life. I have a strong passion for the Gulf Coast Estuaries and cannot wait to share it with you! Stone Crab Season is a special time for us Floridians, from October to May we can harvest our own Stone Crab Claws with our recreational traps! So come along with me and get some CLAWS!!!!
I will provide a cooler of cold water and sodas.
I will provide all equipment needed to catch Stone Crabs and cook the claws.
We will be hauling traps in the surrounding waters of Clearwater Beach. Once we have harvested the Stone Crab Claws, we will head to an island to Cook up the claws for Lunch!
Hauling traps can get messy so bring a change of clothes for afterwards! There is no toilet on the boat. $400 is the total for the trip..includes up to 6 people.
