Default Crabbing around Ocean City, NJ

My four year old son wants to go crabbing while we are here in Ocean City on vacation.

Can anyone recommend a good spot for me to take him, I think he will be more interested in just seeing them rather than actually catching them.

Thank you in advance.

There catching them already. Any salt water tidal flow. Use a piece of chicken or a bunker fish cut in half. Traps or drop line.

You're not going to be able to see them without catching them, as the water is dark and they aren't on the surface. If you want to catch them, there are marinas at 10th and 3rd and Bay where you can rent a boat and/or equipment. There's also a public dock where you can crab (you will need to rent or buy equipment somewhere else though) at the Bayside center, 5th and Bay. They also have educational programs. Also check the Wetlands Institute in Stone Harbor, they have a small aquarium and educational programs. You can also just take him to the AC Aquarium (you can also do a dolphin watch cruise while you're there).
