You know Jones that is a favorite of our grandkids......we take them out in our own boat and let them pull up the pots (crab traps)......then they help us bring them home and cook them.........I would check with the fishing charters in whichever port city you are in and see if any of them include crab harvesting......we like the dungeness crabs best.....really easy to cook your own if you are staying in a place with a kitchen, just boil water enough salted water to submerse them, when it reaches a boil drop them in (alive yes) cover the pot turn down the water to medium temp and continue to boild covered for about 15 minutes.....then plunge them into a sink of icy cold water to stop the cooking......or maybe whoever takes you fishing can boil them up for you and clean them......then just take them to your room to crack and eat them with salad and sourdough french bread.......
