However, this excitement reaches new heights when you realise that these crabs, once caught, can be transformed into mouth-watering delicacies that you can savour. So, catch them all and have an absolute blast! 

Crab trapping is not the only thrilling activity you will participate in on this tour. Imagine the fun you'll have feeding the hungry local pelicans! Yes, experience that and more.
