As a family we purchased a bucket, reels, a net and bacon bait for £10. Had great fun as a family catching small crabs from around the edge of the harbour.

This restaurant is an experience that must be had . The food was sensationally fresh well priced and staff ever on the ready to help . A photo in the crab claws a must .

Wonderful family fun feeding fish, pumping for yabbies, finding crab pots and doing some fishing with the rods provided. All highly organised by the crew. They even had spare towels and swim shorts for some who forgot their. Interesting and relaxing. Open air ferry style boat fully shaded for comfort.

Activities laden trip. Started with feeding pelicans - maybe a dozen residents and fish are provided by crew to be thrown to these birds. Then catch a yabbie at some mudflats - not an easy task but still an experience for most of us who have never tried using a pump to extract these crabs out of their mud homes.... More

Great experience! - pumping yabbies, pulling up crab pots, fishing, and just taking in the good scenery Food served (optional package) was very delicious, and of course fresh (seafood basket is value for money)

The best tour we have ever done, well worth the money. Fed the Pelicans on the way out, yabbie pumping was so much fun. Caught crabs, done some fishing. Grand finale was the lunch... Wow... Amazing staff. Not a bad word could be said. We will do it again...

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
