Live snakes and crocodiles will be among the eye-popping attractions on the corporate Fishing Charters stand at the Club Marine Melbourne Boat Show 5th - 9th July.

Specially brought down from the Northern Territory, the snakes and crocs will make their appearance on the Friday evening, 6 July, from 4pm to 9pm.

In a schedule that rarely slackens pace, Corporate Fishing Charters will again stage the Fijian and Cook Islands theme days that have proven so popular at previous shows.

Saturday will be Fiji Day, with cultural activities, serenaders and dancers, plus kava service all day from 11am to 5pm.

On Sunday the theme is Cook Islands, featuring garland making and other cultural activities plus two live dance shows featuring Cook Island drummers and singers.

The Boat Show marks the first birthday for Corporate Fishing Charters’ sister company Pacific Paradise Getaways, which was launched at last year’s show.

It is celebrating its birthday with the launch of Vanuatu Village Stays which provide an idyllic escape to the true Vanuatu culture untouched by modern society.
