Reserve Your Experience

OC Bay Hopper Crabbing

This trip will generally be run on specified mornings from our Kiosk location (next to the Food Lion off of 117th street in The Ocean City Square Shopping Center).  The trip will depart at 9:00 am and we'll spend about 1 1/2 hours out on the water in our favorite crabbing spots. Aboard the OC Bay Hopper we have several different ways to catch crabs and we will use every method possible to allow you success. Best of all: you can keep what you catch (up to a bushel) as long as the crabs meet minimum size requirements! (we will share our catch with all trip participants...) Please feel free to bring snacks and beverages (we have a cooler that we are happy to share) and don't forget the bug spray.

Reserving an Experience

Due to the uncertainty surrounding our 2020 Summer season (the impacts of COVID-19), we've had to adjust the way we schedule our trips. We're very excited to be back on the water, offering trips and experiences along the coastal bays, and giving families, couples, vacationers, and locals a unique and safe experience on the OC Bay Hopper.

We are not sure whether it will be viable to operate every trip we have put on our schedule. As a business, we need to remain flexible to book groups for private charters, yet still offer the experiences you see on our menu to people who cannot afford booking an entire boat.

For these reasons, we mark most of our trips scheduled more than 72 hours from now, as tentative. This means that we may, if necessary, cancel that trip and refund anyone who made a reservation.

For anyone who is not comfortable with the potential that their trip may be cancelled, we have two options:

  1. Pay an additional fee ($30 for this trip) when booking, and we will "Lock In" that trip so that it won't be cancelled.
  2. Wait until we pass the “Lock In” date (, on for this trip) to book your seats at a regular rate. (We do this to allow private charters, which generally book within 72 hours, to book and cancel our regular schedule)

Reservation/Booking Options

  • Using this option, you will pay an additional $30, and we will run this trip as scheduled.

  • Using this option, you will pay the regular rate for your seat(s). You will receive a full refund if we cancel the trip.

  • You would prefer to wait until the trip is "Locked In" before booking. (Keep in mind, that other customers may reserve/book all of the available seats).
