Mark's fishing and food highlights from the Maldives

If you're wondering what our mate Mark LaBrooy looks like when he's in his element, it's this: barefoot on the back of a boat, in the middle of the Maldives, reeling in a jobfish. Mark travelled to the island paradise to bring a bit of The Ducks laidback flavour to the luxe W Maldives – [...]

Flying to Bali to takeover the kitchen at W Bali - Seminyak's beachside Starfish Bloo... it's a tough job, but someone's gotta do it. So, we sent chef Darren Robertson over to plate up a Ducks-style menu of locally-sourced seafood, including Pacific Coast oysters, Indonesian swordfish and lobster.

Ducks go surfing at the Mentawai Islands

Surfing, food and zero phone reception. That's what lured co-owners Chris, Sam and Mark, along with a few more of the Ducks crew, to put the 'out of office' on and fly to the Mentawai Islands. They spent two weeks chasing pumping tropical waves and catching fish that they cooked up on the boat. We [...]
