DP - Crabtown Cruises
A group of Hampton businesses are launching a series of seafood dinner cruises for the summer starting Saturday.
Seafood market Graham & Rollins partnered with Miss Hampton II, a tour boat company, earlier this spring to form Crabtown Cruises. "This is being demonstrated elsewhere," said Johnny Graham, with Graham & Rollins.
"Why not do it in Crabtown?" Each journey is two hours and has two menu options. One is a steamed dinner of blue crabs, shrimp, clams, corn on the cob, andouille sausage and potatoes. The other is an ala carte menu of shrimp, clams, oysters and blue, snow and red crabs. A full cash bar is available.
The cruise will be $35 per person without food. The steamed dinner adds an additional $34, and feeds two, while the ala carte menu starts at $24.99. Lynn Turnage, with Miss Hampton II, said it was a no brainer when she heard the idea. "Anything to promote the waterfront," she said.
Boarding time is 5:30 p.m. for Saturday, 3:30 p.m. June 23 (a jazz-theme cruise to tie into the Hampton Jazz Festival) and 5 p.m. June 30. Cruises embark from the Hampton Maritime Center (710 Settlers Landing Road). Additional cruise dates will be announced at a later time. More info: GrahamandRollins.com/Cruise or 757-986-0599.
