The quintessential Oregon Coast experience. Kids either love or hate crabs, but it sure is fun to watch their reaction to the delicious crusteaceans. You can also take them clamping in the sand flats across the bay for a more benign, but equally fun adventure.

Great spot to grab some fresh crab and take with on travels. Locally owned and friendly. Would love to fish or go crabbing next time as nice set up. Love the bonfire on the dock for end of day fishing stories too!

I think it was around 7am too. If you want to rent a boat to go crabbing, you can only do that until like 4:00pm
