As good as it gets

One of the great things about our company is a reputation for “Any Time, anywhere, anything” and when this relates to catering it means we get to cook and serve in some remarkable places.

The pictures tell the story and while this is not really “fishing” related, we did have to use boats to get there, so it is kind of relevant. I also passed a nice big school of Tuna feeding on the surface off the back of Whitsunday Island but was too loaded with function gear to even have room for a fishing rod.

This is the famous Whitehaven Beach, a dinner at dusk, a full moon and the corny old cliché about being “as good as it gets”.

The guests for the dinner arrived on the “birthday boys” private super yacht and got to enjoy a very special experience.

Our next Night time function on Whitehaven Beach is the much anticipated “White on Whitehaven” dinner for members and guests of the Abell Point Yacht Club.

We love what we do and where we get to do it. The best job in the world is when your hobby is also your job. Cooking, fishing and messing around in boats……it just doesn’t get any better.
