They are not hard to find here either, most seafood places have them and will cook them when ordered. I don't buy them up in Corolla so I am not sure where they have them there but you can get them at Carawan's which is at the 3rd traffic light after you cross the bridge to Kitty Hawk.

Like you, we live in blue crab heaven and have certain expectations around how those critters should taste. I don't know why, but I've never gotten satisfactory crabs at the outer banks in the past. We haven't bought any in recent years as a result, but when you get spoiled at home, it's easy to get disappointed elsewhere. That's why I never have crab cake anywhere outside of maryland.Edited: 11 June 2016, 02:12
I have lived in Fredericksburg and had Va and Md crabs many many times and the crabs here are not much, if any, different to me. I am sure you could get a bad batch, but some of the best here match those from Md I have had. Ones from the Englehard NC area are worthy opponents.
