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!

Great for big groups, corporate outings and team building exercises! Please inquire directly if you have 10+ people

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.

Her skal du være

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!

This was such a splendid way to spend a weekend afternoon. Alex and Laura were phenomenal hosts and went above and beyond to ensure that my old parents got the most out of the experience. We caught a bunch of crabs and cooked them for dinner too! Highly recommend. It's the best airbnb experience we've had so far!

My wife and I loved our outing with Alex. Scenery was beautiful and Alex was a great host. We caught several Dungeness crabs and rock crabs. Highly recommend, just be sure to bundle up since it can get cold and windy on the pier!

We had a blast with Alex on the pier! Would highly recommend for those that have been curious about crabbing in the Bay. Ended up bringing home only one rock crab, but the joy was more in learning the ins-and-outs of crabbing. We reeled in a decent number of crabs, but Dungeness need to be returned back into the water/rock crabs need to meet size requirements. We also recommend picking up a mocha from the Warming Hut after the experience and/or packing a thermos with hot cocoa/coffee and some hand warmers. It gets chilly so dress in layers!

This was a really fun experience that we would highly recommend. Having lived in SF before, I had never been to this part of town and was in awe of the setting and backdrop. It was really fun and Alex was a great guide.

Great experience, we were a family with an 8 and 11 year old and the kids didn’t want to leave (despite the cold and wet weather). Location was amazing. Alex was patient and a good teacher, and his family joined and provided help and Christmas snacks which went down well! Highly recommended (ps look out for the local sea lions!)

This was a fantastic experience! It’s always hard to determine if you’ll catch anything, but my whole group took a couple rock crabs home for dinner. Make sure to bring layers and a cooler with a lid!
