Do something different. Life's more fun when we're full of crab.

Definitely the highlight for me on my trip to gold coast. (Jupiters would have ranked #1 if I had won money so....). We brought our 5 year old on a rainy Saturday morning and... read more

Trip quite a distance from where we stay. Took a cab for more than an hour but the trip made up for it. We went a fishing boat and were given a chance to try fishing. Then next, we had a bit of fun going out of the boat to catch yabbies. Overall, excellent excursion

We went today and it's definetley something different. We didn't have any success with the yabby catching but after that, it got better. The crab catching and fishing was fun and interesting and you must try the tasting plate of fresh boiled crab afterwards (freshest ever!). The staff were really friendly and patient with all the loud tourists. The guide... More

My parents had previously been on this tour several times. It is a well set up nice morning out feeding pelicans, yabbing, a little bit of fishing and then eating crabs. The tour surprisingly both on the day I went and when my parents went attracts very few Australians. If you like crabs and want to do something different to... More

Thank you so much for your review, we are glad that you enjoyed the day. We would also like to have more Australians join our tour but I am afraid the theme parks are very strong attractions for families visiting this region. The Australian families we do get joining the tour always seem to have fun but yes most of... More

We had a great time on Catch a Crab, Tweed Heads. The day starts off with a cruise on the Tweed River, then we found ourselves on a sand bank pumping for yabbies as bait, then hauling in the crab traps and finally fishing. It was a very enjoyable day.

We went in June which is winter. Weather was sunny but can get chilly when the wind blows so bring a jacket. The yabbies catching was really fun and the kids had a great time but we only manage to catch one. We do see a lot of "soldier crabs" though. The crab catching part was a little disappointing though... More

We went for the $80 package which included seafood basket lunch n 2 portions of crab. We fed the pelicans, did yabbie pumping, fishing n bring up the net containing crab which the operator placed earlier. Overall it is a refreshing experience n the lunch comprising crab, oyster n fish n chip was delicious n fresh. Worth the amount spent.
