Waterman's Pride Seafood was opened in April 2006, a dream of owner Capt Tony Vicari with the goal of selling the freshest Seafood at the best prices.
Capt Tony started crabbing and gillnetting the waters of the Chesapeake Bay with his father at the young age of 13. During those times crabs were kept in live boxes and sold live direct to the public.
Growing up on the water in the Edgemere/Millers Island area, Capt Tony has extensive knowledge of fishing and crabbing in the Chesapeake Bay. This experience and love of the water, passed on to his children who have worked on his boat pulling pots and sorting crabs. Tony Jr. now operates a tugboat out of Baltimore and daughter Christina,with her experience on the boat, along with prior employment in several busy crab houses and excellent customer service skills is the manager of Waterman's Pride Seafood.
Our crabs are caught daily by the owner, and steamed to order, giving our customers the freshest crab they can buy. Our soft crabs are shed by Capt Tony's Dad, and are sent to the store each day.
Fresh Quality Seafood, and a friendly knowledgeable staff has afforded Waterman's Pride with a steady annual growth in bad economic times.
We regularly have customers that travel from out of state to buy our crabs weekly.
As you can probably tell we are very proud of our business, serving our customers the Freshest Seafood at great prices.
Hence the name Waterman's Pride Seafood.
