Must visit with an indigenous guide, absolutely fascinating what they can tell and learn you about nature and how they interact with it (catching fish with spears but also bare-handedly).

We had a lovely couple of hours with Brandon walking the mudflats, looking for crabs and other goodies. Our teens loved the spearfishing lesson. Brandon caught and released a stingray and we found a good amount of cockels, oysters, and other small bites. All but...More

A long walk in the heat and mud. Over 30 spear fisherman without any guidance and minimal interaction with the Walker brothers. This only works in small groups and I would check to make sure that is the case before it is booked.

The brothers give you an amazing nature and cultural experience. Catching crabs, hunting for sea and bush tucker and an inkling into their diverse and complex culture. It's fascinating and challenging. They are natural and fun commentators. Do it!
