Family-friendly, On-the-Water Adventures!
If you’re looking for a fun, hands-on activity that the whole family can enjoy together, hop aboard Risky Business for an Outer Banks shrimping and crabbing charter. Our experienced captain and mate will show your group how to pull crab pots to catch blue crabs and trawl for shrimp the same way that the local commercial fishermen do. You’ll learn about the species caught and how to sort through the catch – and everything of legal size is yours to keep for dinner! Along the way you’ll look for dolphins and other wildlife and see the sights in the Roanoke Sound and Croatan Sound. Based at Shallowbag Bay Marina in Manteo, our Outer Banks shrimping and crabbing charter is convenient to all the northern Outer Banks beach towns, only 5 minutes from Nags Head. We run charters in the summer only, from mid-June through September.
Half-Day Outer Banks Shrimping and Crabbing Charters for All Ages
Our half-day Outer Banks shrimping and crabbing charters are perfect for every member of the family. We keep all ages, even the youngest members of your party, engaged with hands-on activity for the duration of the three-hour charter. Our spacious and comfortable 45’ boat has room for up to six passengers to spread out, whether you’re relaxing in the cabin or busy with the catch in the cockpit. Locally owned and operated by a highly experienced local captain and mate, our charters are safe, informative and fun!
