Testimonials
The Crab and Cruise event was a blast. It totally exceeded my expectations. The food, service, entertainment and everything was outstanding. Not one negative from this guest. I met people from all over and the event had a spirit that I will never forget. Please keep me on your mailing list. I'm ordering my crabs today for the 4th of July and I can't wait to sit down and "get crackin".
If I had one suggestion it would be to keep the cruise part "adults only". Although there was nothing risque that occurred I just think it would be better with no little ones tagging along. Just a thought. All in all my husband and I had a great time. I'm ready to sign up for September. Hope you can bring back Smitty and the On the Edge band. They were awesome!

I had a fabulous time this weekend at the fest. Crisfield, MD is a very nice, friendly little area. We felt very safe wandering in the city. The band was the best i've heard in a very long time. Dance, Dance, Dance GREAT everybody needs to let their hair down. I truly appreciated the diversity amongst the crowd.

I have just been looking at Patty Hancock’s photographs of the Crab & Cruise event in Crisfield on September 25. I have to say it brought back very happy memories for me. My trip to Crisfield remains one of my most favourite ‘foreign adventures!’ It is sad that I no longer have contact details for Val and Frank Guetens, or indeed the two charming ladies that I met at the sea-food festival all that time ago!

Cancellation & Weather
Cancellation policy—Our events typically sell out several weeks before the event date. This forces us to turn customers away after we reach capacity. Full refunds will be issued if a cancellation is requested more than 7 days before the event date (6/14). After 6/14, all ticket sales are final.
Inclement weather—Barring severe weather (i.e. hurricane, tornado, tropical storm, etc), this event is rain or shine. The crab feast is held under a tent so guests are protected from the elements. If weather prohibits us from having the boat cruise, we'll continue the entertainment under the tent.

A Note to CrabPlace Fans from Greg
We can fit 150 people on the cruise boat along with the band and the staff who cater to the crowd. The boat will be comfortable and the attention to the customer will be superb. Tickets will sell out quickly because of the limited quantities. Order early to guarantee a spot on the date you want.
We're anticipating starting the feast at 4pm and heading for the cruise ship around 7pm. That's usually when people are comfortably full. You won't be rushed. Nor will you fall asleep in a pile of crab scraps waiting for the boat to set sail.
The Crab & Cruise really is a super event. The first one we threw several years ago brought folks from all over the country (CA, WI, MO, TX, etc). They had the best time. I've never had so many people tell me they'd just experienced the greatest night of their life. Of course many of them were feeling the effects of the seasoning rinse, if you know what I mean. But it was a great night and we all had a blast.
The next year saw a guy attend from England. It was the first time he'd ever been to the States. He stole the show. He sang in a band over in England, and the band on the boat let him perform a song with them. He was a great guy and that was a priceless moment. No doubt this will be an event to remember as well.
See you there!

What a simply amazing event and cruise! This is the "real Maryland"... eating steamed crabs and then taking a cruise on the Chesapeake Bay! ALL of the food was wonderful, and the band was simply amazing. Go, Smitty! We are looking forward to the next Crab and Cruise!
