Mud Crab Tours

Love mud crabs, then this is the tour for you to try your hand to catch a crab. Within minutes of the city you will be transferred in a Tourist Accredited Vehicle then on the water joining one of our Mud Crab Tours around Darwin to the Harbour Arms or Bays. On this tour your guide will teach you more about the Crabbing in the NT and surrounding area.

Our Mud Crab Tours run for four hours coinciding with the tides.  You will drop the pots, whilst waiting, you may do a bit of fishing for Barra, jewfish or cast for a queenfish or snapper. In between you will be working the pots for crabs until the tide run finishes.  Upon heading back into town your catch can be either tied or cleaned and prepared for you to enjoy!

Want to enjoy your crab whilst in Darwin but don’t know how to prepare it, or would like someone to do it for you!

We have any exclusive offer “Cook your Catch” with OKA Teppanyaki in Parap and OKA Maylasian/Chinese in Bakwell. We have a set priced meal which includes Entree, crab cooked two ways, a rice dish, a vegetable dish and dessert. After your tour, your guide will make your reservation when heading back into town, drop off your catch, and you turn up and enjoy a great evening.
