What a relaxing way to spend the afternoon in Cairns! Tony, the local skipper, was good value and he can cook a good feed of crab. Even managed to snag a couple of fish. Kids absolutely loved the trip and will definitely do it again! Thanks Tony 😁😁

WOW what an excellent day out with Tony the skipper on his boat. Tony has lots of great stories to tell and cant be any more helpful. The crabs we caught were a great size and Tony cooked them for our lunch. We had fresh mud crab and plenty of it and fresh prawns and a platter of beautiful tropical... More

This is our 3rd trip out with Tony and he is unique. It is a nice morning out but the meal was disappointing and a bit stingy, bread rolls were well past the use by date and I didn't eat mine, crab and fruit were nice but not as good as previously

Kids absolutely loved the day out fishing and crabbing. Can't beat the mud crabs for lunch either. Skipper was a real genuine Aussie with lots of laughs. Highly recommended for all.

A trip on Catch a Crab offers a unique experience. It is good in all weather, being a calm water trip and sheltered from the weather. The tour is half a day, travelling up the Inlet past some beautiful scenery. The trip offers fishing, crab catching & tying demonstrations and ends with a delicious lunch, featuring freshly cooked mud crabs.... More

Tony promptly collected us from our accommodation and wow the fun began. Tony is a real character...full of knowledge, entertaining but very professional. We spent a beautiful morning with Tony and his deck hand Kevin..pulling a few crab pots..one had two really good sized crabs in it and then trying our hand at some rod fishing. Tony makes everyone welcome...even... More
