Crab catching In The Backwaters Of Goa

Crab catching in the backwaters is an ideal water activity if you are looking for some peace and quiet. Backwaters are peaceful and have no currents, which is why it is perfect to lounge on a boat while trying to catch crabs. Head over to the boat jetty before the start of the fishing tour. Once you are there, your Atlantis Watersports guide will take you to the backwaters to start your crab catching experience.

One of the best attractions in Goa is crabbing. This activity lasts from 3 o’clock in the afternoon until 7 o’clock in the evening. You and your family are sure to enjoy this one-of-a-kind crab catching experience with Atlantis Watersports, as you get to experience firsthand the thrill of catching crabs on your own.

Your guide will provide you with nets to catch the crabs as well as the bait. Your drinks while on this trip are also provided. You can also view different bird and bat species while on your boat. Once you are done with catching crabs, you can enjoy a sumptuous crab dinner prepared by our Atlantis Watersports’ chefs later in the evening.

Charlie and I have been close friends so I cannot write this review without being a little bias 😉 He’s a gentleman and a very trustworthy businessman. He puts his money where his mouth is, always and never disappoints. He insisted I eat my dinner at least whilst on this crab trip as I had no real interest in fishing but I think deep down he knew my love for the backwaters would make me fall in love with this whole crab-catching experience he was offering. True enough I found myself not wanting it to end and re-booking the trip for the following weekend, this time with my better half. Thanks Charlie for knowing me so well and forcing me to experience this unforgettable trip :*

Having lived in Delhi all my life, seafood had always been a meal for a special occasion. Even though it was so rarely cooked at home, crab-meat was hands down my favourite. Catching crabs was therefore my go to activity in Goa and the barbeque dinner after was the highlight! If given a chance I most certainly will do it again.

We had such a lovely time Charlie what to say really ‘maza aa gaya’, as the youngsters of today would say. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the crab catching experience as this trip to Goa was our first in a very very long time courtesy our loving children. The Barbecue under the moonlight was definitely the cherry on the cake. This experience made me fall in love with my beautiful wife all over again and I would recommend it to loving couples everywhere as a ‘must-do’ in Goa.

Mera chota bhai aur mien seafood ke peche bahut he pagal hai. Humne machliya toh pakre hai but crabs kabhi nahi pakre toh miene uske liye ek surprise plan kiya aur yeh crab cathing book karwaya. Woh etna khush hua hume sab sikhaya kaise net lagana hai kab khana dalna hai aur fir crab pakarne mien hum safal bhi hue! Ek dum rapchik fun tha aur raat ko dinner par who crabs khane ka maza he kuch aur tha!

Мы всей семей ездила на ловлю крабов. заказали за 25$ в Атлантис . Не пожалели не минутки. Все бросали и вытаскивали сети, все участвовали и пытались уловить самого большого краба. Мы остались в восторге. Вечером был вкусный ужин. Напитки тоже включены в тур. Мы теперь всем, кто едет в Гоа, советуем эту компанию и эту замечательную прогулку.

Такой замечательной экскурсии у меня давно не было.
За 25$ я полностью насладилась вкусом крабов да еще и как весело провела свое время. Эта экскурсия стоит своих денег. Мы все очень довольны. Организация Атлантис на отлично!

Such tender meat, wow! Really worth every cent we spent on this trip. Initially we thought it was really expensive and wanted a discount from Charlie but he insisted we go first on the trip and then tell to him if we feel it expensive. And no once we finished the trip we wanted to pay him more haha Thank you Charlie for the great time. See you soon!!

Я первый раз в своей жизни ловила крабов, сначала было страшно, но потом, я вошла во вкус, с нашей лодки было целое ведро крабов, ужин был просто превосходен, всего за 25$. Советую Atlantis Watersports и эту экскурсию .

My boyfriend and I were having a hard time fishing and crabbing until we come to know Atlantis Watersports organizes live crabbing evenings too. We book impromptu and enjoyed a lot. Picked up from hotel and brought to jetty some training and then we were good to catch our own crabs and enjoy them for dinner too! Equipment was provided and drinks onboard were much needed and refreshing. Gracias!

Just relaxing and looking for activities to do, not very physically exhausting and Charlie suggested crab catching to me. I loved it, unwinding in the calm back waters of Goa and catching some dinner while sipping some beer, this is the good life. Great job done by the entire team at Atlantis Watersports they are well versed with English and aware of the area for catching crabs and also some bird watching!
