Shipping
Shipping
National, Regional, and Local
We try as hard as we can to reduce shipping costs for our customers. We offer discounted weekday shipping to some parts of the United States. To see if your order qualifies for discounted shipping, type the "ship to" zip code into the text box below.

 

NATIONAL REGIONAL LOCAL

National:

 

National customers must select a shipping service other than UPS Ground. For more information about the shipping options
for your location, type your "ship-to" zip code into the text box above.

Regional & Local:

 

Most local and regional customers may choose any of the four shipping services. For more information about the shipping options for your location, type your ship-to zip code into the text box above.

* End of Day means that UPS will not guarantee a specific deadline for arrival. The package is simply committed to arrive on the day specified. Technically, the box could arrive as late as midnight - although most orders generally arrive between 10am-6pm under normal circumstances.
If you absolutely must have delivery before a certain time of day, please either upgrade to Next Day Air service (if a commitment time is available for your zip code) or schedule the box to arrive a day early.

* Most of the country is given the choice between Next Day Air Saver (guaranteed by end of day) and Next Day Air (guaranteed by 10:30am - 1:30 pm depending on location). However, in less populated areas Next Day Air may be the only overnight Air delivery option and in those cases the commitment time is by end of day. Please enter your delivery zip code above and click submit to find out what delivery options are available in your area. Thank you.

No Sundays or Mondays:

 

There are no Sunday or Monday deliveries. Orders shipped using UPS 2nd Day Air® cannot be delivered on Tuesdays. Available delivery days are Tue-Sat for overnight packages and Wed-Sat for all 2 day shipping methods. Saturday surcharges apply for all Saturday deliveries.

Your order:

 

Because nearly all of our products are perishable, shipping them takes thought and careful planning. We've come up with our own fresh pack system that keeps perishables cool in transit for at least 48 hours. We take care to arrange your seafood in specialized boxes designed to keep your order in top-notch condition. There is no charge for packing materials.

Cut-off times:

 

Cut-off time for orders is 3:00 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday. Please call 1-877-328-2722 to check availability and to place your order by phone during regular business hours. Orders may be placed over the Internet at any time, day or night.

Delivered-by times:

 

Guarantee times may vary depending on "ship-to" zip code.

UPS:

 

All orders are shipped via UPS. Our customers may visit the UPS website at www.ups.com, or call them toll-free at 1-(800)-PICK-UPS.

Saturdays:

 

Saturday delivery is available in most areas. Saturday deliveries may be shipped using UPS 2nd Day Air or UPS Next Day Air® service. In addition, there is a $15.00 surcharge for all Saturday deliveries. When requesting Saturday delivery to rural areas, please call in advance to check availability.

Hawaii and Alaska:

 

All orders to Hawaii or Alaska will be charged an additional $10 shipping surcharge. At this time, due to customs restrictions on perishables, we only serve the 50 U.S. states.

Packaging:

 

All orders are shipped in insulated Styrofoam boxes and refrigerated using gel packs and/or dry ice. There is no charge for packing materials.

Live crabs:

 

Live hard crabs and live soft crabs delivered outside of a next-day ground area must be shipped using UPS Next Day Air® to ensure fresh delivery.

Steamed crabs:

 

Steamed hard crabs cannot be shipped using UPS 2nd Day Air.

More than one bushel:

 

Orders of more than 1 bushel of hard crabs must be placed separately. If you would like to order more than 1 bushel, you may do so by placing a separate order for each bushel. Applicable shipping charges will be applied to each order.

Non-perishables:

 

Orders consisting of only non-perishable items may be shipped UPS Ground for $7.95.

Gift Cards:

 

Gift Cards are shipped free via USPS.

Order Tracking:

 

Customers can track their orders from the Track Order page. Order tracking is for orders going UPS only. Gift cards shipped via USPS won't have tracking availability.

What is UPS Ground and why isn't it available for everybody?
UPS Ground service is determined by UPS and relates to the areas that are within a 48 hour delivery window from our fulfillment center on the Chesapeake Bay. It carries the least expensive rates and is available to most of the East Coast.
Areas closest to us are able to get their boxes the next day via the Ground system (the blue area on the map above) while those a little further out (yellow area) have a 2 day delivery transit time with the same Ground service. Those in the red area on the map are outside the abilities of the Ground network to deliver their perishable box in a satisfactory condition and therefore must use the Air methods which rely on airplanes to expedite the shipment.
To find out specifically which services you qualify for, simply enter the delivery zip code for your package in the field below and press Submit.
