Full description
Your day starts with a complimentary transfer from your accommodation to a beach landing on the shores of Roebuck Bay. From here, you will dip your toes in the calm waters of ‘The Bay’ as you make a shallow wade on to the awaiting transfer tender that takes you to our catamaran ‘Ballena’. On board, you will be greeted by our vibrant crew a, light morning tea and a nice cup of tea, coffee, juice or even a mimosa for those really eager to slip in to holiday mode. As you sip, we will cruise through The Bay admiring it’s unique scenery which includes mangroves, bright turquoise water and striking Pindan rock formations. Cruising over to the incredible creek systems takes about an hour and being a low powered catamaran, there is little noise to disturb the scenic beauty making it the perfect time to relax and unwind ahead of the next few fun filled hours. Arriving at the mouth of the creek system, our expert staff will give you a briefing on what to expect and the best techniques to secure your very own delectable Kimberley Mud Crab. Once we’ve shown you our ways, we will take small groups of up to six on the tender to meander through the intertwined mangroves in search of the highly sought after Kimberley Mud Crabs. Everyone will have a chance to try their luck at picking a prime spot, casting a pot and the ever suspenseful pulling of the pot. For those still on Ballena whilst the others are having a crack at bagging their elusive crab, our staff will ensure you are completely taken care of as you relax on our comfortable shaded decking. Once everyone has enjoyed the excitement that is the quest to secure your very own Kimberley Mud Crab, we will show you how to prepare these delectable morsels before cooking them up for you to be enjoyed on board as we make the cruise back through the bay keeping an eye out for wildlife as we go.
