Crabby Bobs has been in operation since 1999. It started out with Crabby Bob selling live crabs from his boat. Soon after the buildings started popping up and more products started arriving, the little shack became a place where people would come to buy their fresh, local seafood.
In 2011 Crabby Bobs changed hands to a family friend Ray and not a lot changed but was still a spot for people to pick up dinner ideas. You would always find a table on the dock with friendly faces, smiles, and stories being shared.
In 2013 the business was passed down to Crabby Abby and nowhere I am writing this little story for you to read. A lot has changed since I have started looking after the shop!! Once I was able to learn the way the shop operated, I was able to start sourcing out more local products that people were interested in. Today if we do not carry it, we do our best to find it for our customers.
A few years after running the shop we introduced steaming to our services offered. This has given our guests the opportunity to have us prepare the seafood that comes from the local waters of the Salish Sea. From Fresh Shucked Oysters, Steamed Dungeness Crab, and B.C Spot Prawns to name a few you will leave with a belly full of goodness and hopefully a love for our local offerings. For the seafood lover or the first-timer, we are happy to be able to share what our community is proud of.
All our products are sourced from B.C Fisherman, sustainable and traceable, which is important to us for ensuring you know where your food comes from. We do carry products from afar and these are sustainable and traceable as well.
We look forward to locals and visitors from afar popping by and saying hi and having the opportunity to get to know where you are from and letting us share our love of seafood with you.
