The crew were great, fed the pelicans, pumped our own bait, fished for small Bream, Pulled up a crab trap that had been placed in the water ealier that day. Watched as the crabs were cooked on the boat, sort of expected we may have been given some crab to eat but not offered. You could buy a Mudcrab chips and salad for $60 from the restaraunt

We had an amazing time out on the Tweed River catching our own crabs, yabbie fishing and learning about oyster farming. This is a great activity for both adults and kids. We went with our 10 year old, and she had a fantastic time. Loads of Aussie humor from the guides to keep you entertained as well. I suggest you order the seafood lunch after your tour where they cook the crabs you caught. The Oyster Shed (where you can have lunch, nextdoor to where the tour starts/ends) is not affiliated to the Catch-a-Crab Tours, and don't have crab on their regular menu. So if you don't buy the lunch package with the crab, you miss out on tasting the lovely mud crabs.

The boat tour was fantastic with great hosts with their commentary of wide wealth of knowledge and oyster farm talk was interesting learnt a few things for sure. Had fun feeding pelicans and seagulls in the sky. Pulling up the crab traps was cool got a female in mine. Pumping yabbies was exciting. We cruised past batman Island and saw 2 dolphins that swam past us close enough for us all to take photos. Then found a quiet spot for some fishing which was awesome, hubby even caught one. After we docked had lunch at their oyster shed restaurant got the premium crab platter which came with a whole mud crab, 3x oysters, salad and chips each. They also have a bar so got some white wine that paired perfectly. Such a great experience to share and an added romantic feel to it with a lovely water views for our seafood lunch.
