Outdoor Education in Vancouver BC, with Drew Climie

SUP Crabbing Clinic

SUP Crabbing Clinic, Vancouver and Lower Mainland BC

Learn the art of SUP Crabbing with your experienced guides Dennis Gamboa and Drew Climie. Together we’ll teach you the art of hunting and catching crabs from your SUP. You will learn the most efficient and effective way to crab off your paddleboard. This clinic takes the guesswork out of trying to decide what type of trap to buy or the best bait to use.

Gain knowledge and experience from the experts. You will go home with the confidence to go crabbing on your own and with something to eat for dinner.

Note: depending on tides, this clinic may run over one or two days.
