Waterman’s Wharf

At Waterman’s Wharf, a recreated crabber’s shanty, try your hand at several of the seafood harvesting activities of a Chesapeake Bay waterman. You can watch crabs shed, check an eel or crab pot to see if you’ve caught anything, or tong for oysters. Outside the shanty are the waterman’s boats – the Hooper Island draketail Martha, a “Pot Pie” skiff, and the Volunteer, a replica Smith Island crab scrape.
