Cooya beach walk, spears and mud crabs with guide!

What's not to love of a beach walk holding a spear. Our 7 year old rated this better than the reef trip! 11 year old caught a mud crab, we all picked mussels off the mangroves... read more

What's not to love of a beach walk holding a spear. Our 7 year old rated this better than the reef trip! 11 year old caught a mud crab, we all picked mussels off the mangroves which when cooked up were tasty. The fresh water mussels were very big. Our family really enjoyed the walk with Brandon, and felt lucky... 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.

We joined Brendon while his brother was teaching the ' Bush Wacked' crew. We tried to spear fish and crabs in the shallow waters. The scenery is amazing. We went deep into the mangroves to collect periwinkles , oysters the grew on the mangrove stems, mussels and mudcrabs. It's one of those places were you never tend to go. Afterwards... More

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!

We went out with Brandon and Linc this morning in a large group. Everyone practised throwing spears on the beach, then we walked through the shallow water collecting cowrie shells, looking out for stingrays and crabs. A few crabs were speared, but this is not the best crab time, which is new and full moon. Then we collected oysters and... More

We went in a large group and found only two out of the fourteen were able to hear what was going on as they were at the front. We didn't catch any crabs or fish. Spears were used as walking sticks. The walk was not well timed as it was high tide so we had to wade in mud through... More

The walker brothers take groups out onto cooya beach spear fishing, crab catching, mussel finding and mangrove hopping. Out kids thought it was awesome. We just loved it. A great experience to get a taste of indigenous culture - and you get to eat the products of your work at the end! Seafood will never be this good again!
