#1 Fishing Charter in Port Fairy

3 epic charter options for beginners to experienced anglers.


8 Hour Charter

These charters are aimed at the more experienced anglers heading further off-shore, targeting bluefin tuna, shark (gummy, school, mako & thresher) as well as yellowtail kingfish when in season. Available from February to December - for charters over the summer months please see our 6 Hour Charter.

Available: Feb - Dec

Per Person: $350 or

Private Boat: $1,750 (for up to 6 people)


6 Hour Charter

Our popular 6 hour charters can be privately customised for families, groups or the less experienced just looking to have a fun day out catching plenty of reef fish, or possibly a shark, bluefin tuna or kingfish. We also cater for more experienced groups specifically targeting these species. Our 6 Hour Charters are run EXCLUSIVELY over the summer months and school holidays (morning and evening) taking advantage of the warm onshore water which keeps our travel times down.

Available: Dec - Feb

Per Person: $300 or

Private Boat: $1,500 (for up to 6 people)


3 Hour Eco-Tour

Lady Julia Percy Island - Port Fairy’s best kept secret, which never ceases to amaze people when viewed up close! The island, located 22km’s from Port Fairy is nothing like you imagine when viewed from afar. Passing by the Lighthouse on Griffith Island is just the beginning of our tour to the largest breeding colony of Australian Fur Seals in the Southern Hemisphere - an estimated 27,000, which must be seen to be believed. With an abundant and varied sea life, we also bump into seabirds, dolphins and sometimes even a shark or a whale.

Available: Year round

Per Person: $150 or

Private Boat: $750 (up to 6 people)
