My girlfriend and I have been here 3 times over the last 5 years with friends and it has been fun every time. Catching prawns is quite addictive! Even better when you get to eat them in the restaurant afterwards. Highly recommend the tour too

Hi Helena, It's like any fishing there's a knack to it - some people catch a couple and others catch plenty. What you catch is yours to keep - no extra charge. Hope to see you soon.
