Crab hunting

The night crab hunt is a unique opportunity to return to primeval times, where only the trident and your hunting instincts are between you and your prey.

The hunt takes place in the shallow waters between the natural islands of the Umm Al Quwain Emirate.

You will be provided with a flashlight, a trident and a boat with an experienced captain-guide.

After a successful hunt you can enjoy freshly cooked prey with a mug of cold drink.

This real adventure begins with changing clothes – all hunters must be in swimming trunks, life jackets, which are given free of charge near the cabins, and special shoes on thick rubber soles (shoes must be rented, carefully selected by size).

Accommodated in a boat with a local captain-guide, you can go to the place of hunting – shallow water where crabs are located.

The task of hunters is to shine a flashlight on the bottom of the sea, find crabs, try to pierce the shell with a sharp knife so as to target and pull out the crab, sending it to a special box with trophies of the whole group.
