FISHING CHARTER INFO:
Our regular charters are very family-friendly and include:

  • unlimited tea/coffee/hot milo
  • all legal-sized fish caught by you, cleaned, filleted and bagged (bag limits apply)

Drinks (spirit mixes, beer, cider, soft drink, and water), lollies, chocolates, chips and handwarmers are also available for purchase on board. The licensed bar is open between 11am-11pm. There is a toilet on board and the vessel accommodates wheelchairs, mobility aids and strollers/pushers.

Fishing charters depart from and return to the end of Yarra Street, Geelong 3220, behind Fisherman’s Pier Restaurant and next to where the helicopter lands. Sometimes, due to better parking, or better access on to the boat, the charter may leave from St. Helen’s Ramp, North Geelong 3215.

You are requested to arrive at the departure point at least 10 minutes prior to scheduled departure time.
