Tweed Mud Crab

Try your hand at yabbie pumping which is a popular Aussie sport that gives you a chance to get your feet wet while collecting live bait for fishing. Pull up crab pots from the muddy banks of the inlet and be entertained as their activities coordinator gives an interactive, informative and humorous crab show.

Cast out a line and try your luck at catching one of the many fish that inhabit these waters while they prepare your freshly caught and cooked mud crab with a buffet lunch. After lunch, hand feed the pelicans and seagulls and cruise past oyster leases while keeping an eye out for a dolphin or two.

Their vessel Captain Bill's Explorer has a walk around deck around the perimeter of the vessel. The vessel is two stories, allowing customers to spread out and enjoy their cruises in comfort. So come along and say hello to their crew, and let them show you an Aussie experience you will not forget!!
