1966 was the year the Thompson family’s story started with David Thompson Senior on the helm of his boat ‘Seatips’.
Back in the 60s living out of a coastal shack settlement 200 kilometres North of Perth, David and his three sons worked on the sea together, fishing every day for the elusive Western Rock Lobster.
Today, these three sons have raised their own sons to become lobster fishermen. That first single boat has now been surpassed by a fleet of modern and highly efficient vessels, which today continue to fish the waters off the coast of Cervantes.
The Cervantes lobster fleet is a collection of modern, fast and efficient boats.
