What can beat a platter of freshly caught and cooked crayfish, served with a glass of chilled white wine?

Revered by most Capetonians, our crayfish is a seasonal delicacy, only permitted to be taken from the ocean for a short period annually, and only if you have obtained a permit.

Permits are easily obtainable at the beginning of the season, and they also stipulate a limited catch per person daily. Rigid controls are in place; both to protect and increase the Abalone and Crayfish population, and Marine Officials are vigilant in their daily patrolling of the coastline. There are many areas dotted along the coastline from Gordon’s Bay to Betty’s Bay that are favoured by fisherman. Except for the safe bathing areas, this coast is notorious for freak waves, and caution is advised when venturing out to remote areas.

There are regular charter cruises leave both Harbour Island and Gordon’s Bay , weather permitting. This is a great way of exploring the magnificent coastline between Gordon’s Bay and Pringle Bay.
