O que você fará

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.

Onde você estará

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!

Was a great excursion. Would 100% do it again! Alex was considerate and really easy going. Caught around three to four crabs each which was super fun

We had an amazing time! Alex was super informative, friendly and very easy to talk too. It was a gorgeous day, and view of the bridge as well as the city was unbeatable. We ended up catching more than 10 crab with 1 keeper due to restrictions but it was such a great experience. Would highly recommend taking Alex’s class as it was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon outside and in the city!

Attended class on a Saturday afternoon at the SF pier. Got really lucky with the weather, it was a beautiful day which made for some great photos of crabbing near the Golden Gate bridge. My partner and I attended the class together (she was def more excited for the class than I was) after a failed attempt at crabbing on our own with no prior experience or training. We kept our expectations low hoping to at least catch one crab each by the end of the day. After some pointers from Alex on correct casting technique we were catching crab within the first hour of class and between the two of us we caught more than 10 crabs during class. My girlfriend even managed to catch 2 crabs on one line! Because Dungeness are protected in SF we had to throw most of our catches back but still had the satisfaction of a successful day at the pier. Alex later told us about a good spot to catch rock crab on the other side of the pier and we were able to catch a crab we could actually take home. First time having crab fresh from the ocean and not a market. It was delicious. Would highly recommend Alex's class. He is very knowledgable and friendly. He definitely set us up for success and we now both want to get our own fishing licenses to crab places other than the pier. Even if you aren't planning to buy your own gear afterwards its a fun and unique experience. All the other people in class were really nice and supportive as well. If I could give the class more stars I would!

Had a great time learning to crab from Alex! It was a perfect introduction to crabbing for my boyfriend and I. We've learned some skills and feel more confident about going crabbing on our own in the future! It was also in the most prime location of SF in the Presidio with beautiful views of the cityscape and Golden Gate Bridge. A super relaxing way to spend a Saturday!

We had such a great time! Alex is very informed and helpful but also gives you plenty of time and space to experiment and try on your own! It was so much fun to catch crabs and Alex answered all of our questions.

We didn't catch any keepers, only a couple of crabs that we had to throw back. It was a great experience, and a beautiful location!
