Quality for Generations

It all started with hard work, a man, and the help of his strong, devoted family

In the Beginning

He came from modest beginnings on the eastern shore of Virginia, where his father was a waterman. His decision to settle in DC at the Wharf, right in the nation's capital, came to him after selling crabs and various wholesale items around the metropolitan area.

With an honest work ethic, a loyal customer base, and the confidence from local watermen, he was able to not only create a thriving business here on the Wharf but also create a way of life for future generations.

Captain White's has continued to thrive under the leadership of his two sons Billy and Sunny.

Furthermore, with the help of Billy's sons Mark and Pete manning the daily operations, Mark's son Douglas, nephews Paul, Kevin, Collin, Sam and niece Jasmine serving our loyal customers, many cousins, and several other members of the family behind the scenes, this has now become a fourth generation family owned and operated business.

Family owned and operated since 1972, Captain White's is your source for the freshest, highest quality seafood in the DMV.

For generations, we've sourced our seafood direct from local fishermen rather than going through wholesale markets to ensure every catch is fresh and affordable to our customers. Whether you're on the hunt for crabs, lobsters, shrimp, or more, make Captain White's your first stop for the best price, quality, and customer service.
