John’s boat tours are very professional, the guys on the excursions are very friendly, knowledgeable and enjoy a laugh.
Very well organised trips for a fraction of the price that your rep charges.
we will definitely be using them again.
I was recommended them and I am now recommending them to you. You cannot go wrong, they are fully insured and were even featured on BBC.
Booking is a breeze with the friendly staff at all his locations in Candolim.

I love discover the world !

John’s Crab Fishing Trips are organised at the many estuarine waters of Goa, as well as in the submerged fields, amidst the mangrove and palm trees.

Fishing for crabs isn’t exactly a thing for those obsessed with hygiene. A rustic outdoor sport in those parts of Goa which are far from the tourism spotlight.

Fishing for crabs is done with the help of handmade traps. A trap called a ‘cobllem’ in Konkani consists of a circular ring, made of metal.With another rod running across the diameter. A loose hanging net is secured to one side of the ring.

Crab traps usually set up during high tide as chances of catching a crab increases. But one can get good crabs even during low tide where the water is deep. The trap is rests at the bottom of the river bed and you can sit in the boat and sip on your beer in the meantime.
