It just depends on how long the water stays warm enough for the crabs. We will catch and serve them until it gets too cold. Some years that’s Ddcember. Some years it’s late October.

There are picnic tables on the property where you could enjoy a takeout order with your furry friends. We do not provide waiter service to them. Non-seafood options are limited to sides and chicken tenders. Hope this helps!

Not a local, but Island Life NC provides a great chart - links are not allowed in answers but you’ll find it by Googling “seafood in season NC Island Life”
