Grebbestad is the oyster capital of Sweden and also rightly famous for its catches of fabulous west coast crab, crayfish, lobster and mackerel. You can taste them all, obviously depending on season, at Telegrafen restaurant, at Nedre Långgatan 28, or how about catching them yourself?
At Everts Sjöbod (boathouse) just 2 km northwest of Grebbestad expert fishermen brothers Lars and Per Karlsson will take you out and teach you how to catch west coast lobster. They won't teach you how to eat it though, you get to do that yourself back at their beautifully renovated and original boathouse. You can also choose from pots of other activities such as mackerel fishing, crab fishing, oyster 'safaris' and oyster tastings. Food journos from all over the world have been here and loved it. You probably will too.
Ingemar Granqvist is the captain of the good ship M/S Mira, out of Fjällbacka and you can join him for lobster, crab and crayfish safaris on their own, or as part of a package from Tanumstrand Hotel and Resort.
Don't forget, the lobster fishing season in Sweden starts on the first Monday after September 20th.
