A fun activity for children and adults alike

Crabbing is a great family-friendly activity you can enjoy at River Hamble Country Park. Bring along a bucket and crabbing line to see shore crabs up close. But remember to always take your line home and read our crabbing guidelines.

The jetty is not managed by River Hamble Country Park, so please report all problems to the Hamble Harbour Authority.

Crab lines and buckets will be available at The Barn.


The River Hamble is a popular place for recreational fishing, and visitors are welcome to fish from the country park.
