Vad du kommer att göra

We will meet at a pier in the Marina/Presidio district of San Francisco where we will be located near the Golden Gate Bridge. The views of the water will be spectacular and because of the size of the pier we will have more than enough room to spread out and try our techniques. Make sure to arrive early so you can find parking and pay for it if need be near The Warming Hut cafe.

Once all the guests have arrived we will learn to setup the equipment we will supply with very detailed explanation of how and why we use particular gear. Once we have setup our rods, filled our bait in our traps we will learn the different forms of casting and the technique of reeling. Because we are fishing for crab there is a different approach to how you catch crab off of a rod and reel.

Because of Department Fish and Game laws we will not be allowed to take home any Dungeness crab unfortunately not only because the Bay is a protected estuary but because we will be crabbing outside of the regular season. As a result we will be catching rock & red crab which are edible and delicious crabs to take home.

Please join me as many others have to see if spending an afternoon out on the waterfront of the bay, meeting new people and learning a skill is right for you!

My name is Alex and I am an avid fisherman and an ocean lover. I am a born and raised San Francisco Native who grew up on the bay's wonderful and diverse coastal lifestyle.

After being a sushi chef & a ceviche chef early in my professional career it's no wonder I have an an affinity for quality seafood and fresh sustainable practices. With 10 years of crabbing I have honed my experience and knowledge of these tasty crustaceans. From my time in restaurants and in the service industry for nearly 15 years I came to realize I needed to start my own business encompassing different passions of mine.

I have been running "The Art of Crabbing" which is THE original bay area crabbing experience going for Dungeness. The season for Dungeness goes from Nov-June.

Var ni kommer att vara

I will be either outside of the Warming Hut Cafe or on the pier itself depending on when you show up. Because it can get very busy I usually stand closer to the pier with almost a poles sticking out of my cart. If you booked the afternoon session I will more than likely already be out on the pier. I shouldn't be too hard to miss and I love this location because of the view, accessibility to drinks/snacks and relative ease for catching something!

We loved the location, the view and all the instructions Alex provided was clear, even though we were very first time to catch crabs. My children also enjoyed the experience although it was hard to actually catch the crabs ;).

Had a great time out with Alex and company today crabbing! Learned how to use my equipment and caught some crabs too. Will definitely be coming back down here to crab on my own now that I know how to do it. Would definitely recommend this excursion if you are looking to learn about how to crab and hopefully take some home with you

I’d highly recommend this experience to anyone looking to try something new in SF! I did this for my birthday weekend and it was perfect. Alex and Spencer were really helpful in getting everything set up, patiently explaining techniques, and helping you hold your crabs so you can take pictures with them without getting pinched. My boyfriend and I caught 6 crabs and threw 5 back. We weren’t able to take home Dungeness crabs we caught since you’re not allowed to take them from that protected part of the bay but took home red and rock crabs - they were delicious! Alex generously donated some crabs to us since we were a little lacking haha. I wouldn’t expect a big crab dinner but if you want to have a good time, learn some things, catch a crab or two, and spend a day at a beautiful quintessential SF location (Golden Gate bridge to your left, Alcatraz to your right), DO IT! The sea lions were also a great bonus. They’re frolicking, begging for extra bait and generally being adorable. Thanks for a great day Alex and Spencer!

So much fun!!! My friends and I definitely want to go crabbing again. We were successful and caught enough crab for dinner. Alex was a great host, is clearly very passionate about crabbing and made it very easy. Also very covid safe! The pier is very spacious and its easy to spread out. Thanks for such a fun afternoon Alex!

Alex was phenomenal! We had a lot of fun learning about crabbing and catching some crabs and even got to take some home and cook them. It was a memorable experience, and I would highly recommend.

Alex is a great host, our family enjoyed whole experience. We had no prior experience about crabbing and didn’t expect to learn so much. We greatly appreciate Alex for sharing all the knowledge and helping us to learn new skill.
