If you’re ready to enjoy fishing and crabbing in Dewey Beach, book a trip with Crab Burner Charters. With Captain Mason, you’ll benefit from years of knowledge and experience.

Primarily crabbing for Blue Crabs. Fishing is also offered upon inquiry.

Families who love fishing together will be glad to know that kids are welcome aboard! Be sure to ask if child-sized life vests are available, otherwise, you should bring your own. Also, remember to bring snacks!

Capt. Mason welcomes you aboard a 27’ 271 Coastal Skiff with space for 6 passengers. It comes with everything you need for a productive day on the water. All the gear and tackle you need is provided.

It’s customary to tip the Mate 10–20% to show your appreciation.

The charter boat covers your fishing license, just show up ready for a good time! Some fish and crabs have special regulations, including when you can keep them. If you don’t know what to expect, ask the captain. Some essentials to bring are sunglasses and sunblock. Drinks will be available for you. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, just avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.
