Crabbing Centre

The Crabbing Centre is now PARTIALLY OPEN, the two smaller Crabbing sections will be opened once essential maintenance has been completed. 

*Under no circumstances should the grates be lifted until maintenance has been completed.*

The Crabbing Centre will close on 19 September 2022 to allow the crabs to rest before the busy spring & summer months. The opening date for 2023 is TBC.

National Events Deck, Saundersfoot Harbour

A fun FREE activity for all the family, crabbing is a sure way to keep everyone amused and learn a little about the local wildlife at the same time. The Crabbing Centre can be found in the middle of the National Events Deck, and is wheelchair accessible, with safety railings in place. Please be aware that for your safety, crabbing is not allowed into the harbour itself.

What do we do?

Crabbing buckets, lines and bait can be purchased from Fairwinds Chandlery at the Marine Centre of Excellence.
