Once shipped, your seafood will take approximately 1-2 days to arrive. Ground shipments may arrive any day between Tuesday-Saturday.

Does Crab Dynasty Deliver on Saturday?
Delivery on Saturday is provided to most locations, and your order may ship using Home Delivery (designated areas as assigned on the shipping map) or Priority Overnight delivery. For Saturday Overnight Delivery, a $15 surcharge will apply. Please call to check the availability of Saturday Delivery if you reside in a rural area. Please note that Home Delivery does not carry any additional charge.
Live and Steamed Crabs
Because of the high mortality rate of live seafood, live crabs must ship using FedEx overnight for destinations outside a 1-day delivery zone. For those areas that are located in a 1-day Home Delivery zone, you can order live crabs using Home Delivery, but we do not recommend this, since the delivery time is not guaranteed (you will most likely have a greater mortality rate). If this is a concern, then we recommend using an overnight shipping option or ordering steamed crabs. Steamed crabs can be shipped using Home Delivery Ground (where available) or Overnight depending on your location.
If Ordering More than a Bushel of CrabIf you are ordering more than a bushel of steamed or live crabs, each order must be separately using the website or by calling us to place your order. An applicable shipping charge will be applied to each separate order.
Weather, seasonal sources, and the supply of seafood changes constantly (which is beyond our control). On a rare occasion, a seafood item might not be available or in short supply after placing your order. If this occurs, we will contact you to make adjustments or to make other arrangements.
If ordering a gift card, your card will be sent via e-mail or mailed by United States Postal Service.
