Rotto seafood lures LeCras

The Sunday Times - - NEWS -

CUT-PRICE ferry tick­ets to Rot­tnest Is­land will help launch a new seafood fes­ti­val for the is­land get­away.

Called Seafood Satur­day and to be held on November 24, the cel­e­bra­tion of all things seafood in­cludes a mix of tick­eted events and free ac­tiv­i­ties.

Re­tired West Coast Ea­gles foot­baller and avid fish­er­man Mark LeCras, pic­tured, has signed on as am­bas­sador and will run fish­ing clin­ics.

Ferry tick­ets to the is­land on the day will start from $30 re­turn.

Seafood Satur­day in­cludes catch-and-cook cray­fish boat tours, a seafood de­gus­ta­tion din­ner, a beach bar­be­cue, sun­set tours, long-ta­ble din­ners, a beach bon­fire and a live cook­ing sta­tion, from 10am to 8pm, with late fer­ries sched­uled.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to host­ing some fam­ily-friendly fish­ing clin­ics on the day and I’ll be helped by some very knowl­edge­able Rot­tnest lo­cals in the form of Rot­tnest Is­land rangers,” LeCras said.

“They know the is­land wa­ters.”

The fish­ing clin­ics will be held at Thom­son Bay, at 10.30am, 11.30am and 1.30pm. Regis­ter on­line or on­site.
