    What to Expect
    Aboard this two hour excursion you will explore how various ecosystems intertwine to create the rich food web that provides food for our tables.This is a unique opportunity for guests of all ages! If we do catch shrimp aboard an expedition the crew will package some up for guests to take home.

    All excursions depart from Harbour Town Yacht Basin within the Sea Pines Resort. There is a $6.00 per vehicle entry fee for the Sea Pines Resort that must be paid in cash. This gate pass is valid for the entire day, so make the most out of the Sea Pines Resort. Check-in for your Shrimp Trawl aboard the Tammy Jane will be at the Vagabond Cruise reservation office which is located just to the right of the Harbour Town Lighthouse. 

    The Tammy Jane is also available for private charters for up to 30-passengers. If you would like more information about this opportunity please reach out to Vagabond Cruise directly.

    This boat trip is a winner in so many ways. The docks at the base of the Lighthouse in Harbor Town could be its own day trip event. The boat was clean, the crew professional and and the time productive. We signed up to be on the water and to learn how the Shrimp boats work.

    Had a very good afternoon with Captain Spike and Mate Ricky shrimping on the Tammy Jane. Lots of information about shrimping and other inhabitants of Calibogue Sound from Ricky as we were on the way to the shrimping grounds. There were both small children and seniors on board.
