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.

Took this trip as our reef charter was cancelled due to rough weather. Didn't expect much, but it turned out to be an extremely pleasant morning. Henry is a wealth of knowledge about the inlet and he knows a lot about crabs. I think he...More

Not for the pros, but if you want a casual day out on the water this is a good option. Kent knew where to take us to catch heaps of fish. When we hauled in the crab pot, it was full of mud crabs. Yum!!
