    Head out on a half day charter and go fishing for the freshest catch of the season, such as snapper, flathead, whiting and more. It’s an easy five-minute walk from St Kilda to board your fishing charter, and even if you’ve never fished before, you’ll receive a full safety briefing and instructions before you leave port. Everything is taken care of with all bait, tackle, rods and reels provided.

    Onboard, you have all the facilities you need including, marine toilets and a large ice box for everyone to use. While there are no guarantees of catching fish or perfect weather conditions on the day, the crew will maximise your chances by giving you helpful instructions. Plus, the boat is equipped with the latest fish-finding and GPS equipment for locating fishing hotspots.

    The captain will keep you entertained with his passion and in-depth knowledge of fishing, life at sea and the marine environment. When it’s time for lunch, you'll be treated to a delicious BBQ sausage sizzle, and you can BYO canned beers (limit of two per person). Plus, all the fish you catch will be cleaned and bagged for you to take home.

    Please note: Trips run September to December with a 10.30am start, or January to May at 6am or 11.30am (may depart one hour earlier, subject to weather)
