Risky Business Shrimping & Crabbing Charters

Shallowbag Bay Marina
1100 S. Bay Club Drive, Manteo
(252) 473-1475

Docked at Shallowbag Bay Marina in Manteo, Risky Business offers inshore shrimping and crabbing charters in the Roanoke and Croatan sounds. This is a fun, hands-on, family-oriented activity, and all ages are welcome. You'll learn to pull crab pots and shrimp nets, and you get to keep your catch. They run four three-hour trips a day – early morning, mid-morning, early afternoon and late afternoon – from May through September. The 45' boat offers a large fishing platform — a 27-foot-long, 15.5.-foot-wide fishing area that accommodates six chairs and has a shaded area. The boat has a restroom and tables and benches in the cabin. They supply all the necessary equipment and fishing licenses, so all you need to bring are snacks and drinks, a few layers of clothing and sunscreen. Captain Wesley Peele makes sure everyone has fun and safe time on the water while keeping an eye on conservation and respect for the fish species.
