OC Bay Hopper Crabbing

An absolute Maryland tradition- blue crabbing with a hand lines and crab pots! Come out on the OC Bay Hopper in the morning; everyone who wants to can get their hands dirty baiting and setting the line/traps and have fun of scooping crabs up with a net. And for those who don't know anything about the blue crab, we will be happy to share our knowledge and enthusiasm about them!


Aligned with the goal of ensuring all OC Bay Hopper customers have a great experience, we will only run trips that are deemed safe by our Captains. Generally, the weather on the coastal bays of the Ocean City area is very pleasant but sometimes storms and thunderstorms do occur.

In the event that your trip is cancelled, you will receive a full refund. Sometimes, the weather conditions, particularly high winds causing choppy seas, will allow us to run a safe trip that is a bit unpleasant.

Our captains will always strive to let people know when conditions will be less than ideal and if conditions warrant a possible refund you may choose to not take the trip. (But sometimes those rough passages make for the best experiences!)
