My partner and I spend the afternoon on this tour boat, didn't catch anything to size but the crabs we caught were lovely to eat, our tour guide was awesome and he cooked up a good feed. I would Defiantly recommend giving it a go.

Great 1/2 day tour with Kent, ticked off plenty of bucket list items. Croc spotting, catching fish, crabbing. Kent was a great host and looked after us all day, cold drinks, rice paper rolls and fresh crabs cooked on the boat.
