Took my wife and kids (8 and 6) and they absolutely loved the hands on experience. This was truly a memorable and unique day and you're almost guaranteed to take home a bunch of crabs and shrimp. Mike and his mate were top notch. Thank you!

We went out with Captain Mike and his son Walker for a two hour shrimping cruise of the sound. It was early in the season - so we didn’t catch a ton of shrimp, but we had a great time learning about the process. My kids got to help sort the catch from the nets, learned how to handle crabs and learned about the different types of fish that came up in the shrimping net. Captain Mike and Walker were great at explaining the process and fun to talk to. I highly recommend!

Captain Mike and his son Walker took us out for a late afternoon shrimping and crabbing charter. Our party consisted of grandma 71, husband and I, kids 14 & 12 and even allowed our dog! Both Captain Mike and Walker were very patient answering all of our questions and teaching us how to properly sort and measure the crab. After collecting an entire bushel of crab we started shrimping. The kids loved sorting through the catch. Walker let the kids hold all the fish and helped them learn to identify them. We weren’t as lucky with the shrimp but probably still caught 10lbs to bring home. I highly recommend Croatan Charters!

We went out on a 4 hour crab and shrimp charter trip with 2 adults and 4 kids ranging from 5-8 yo. The trip was great! Capt Mike and his mate (Dalton) made it a safe trip (wind was howling so kept us closer) but also a fun one. The kids had a great time sorting the shrimp from the rest of the catch and also doing "battle " with the crabs. They also learned a lot about about crabbing and shrimping. Capt Mike and Dalton were friendly and super helpful. Overall great trip. JM

Went spec fishing one day and crabbing one day with Captain Mike. Took my 11 year old daughter on both days. Fishing was kind of slow, but Captain Mike work hard to find us some fish. My daughter loved pulling the crab pots and sorting through the crabs. We ended up with almost a bushel of crabs to take home and cook. Both trips were very enjoyable.
