This is a great walk in the evening. You walk by all the shrimp boats. All the bars and restaurants have great happy hours

If you stay near here and want a great meal and view, you have to go visit RB's seafood on Shem Creek waterway. A GREAT place!

We walked the entire length of the boardwalk, watching the kayaks and boats. Had a nice conversation with one of the shrimp boaters and saw pelicans and two dolphins. Relaxing way to enjoy the afternoon, very scenic views and a nice breeze off the water....More

There might be places to crab in the Charleston area but not right on Shem Creek near the hotel. The best source for that information would be South Carolina Department of Natural Resources.
