Are you interested in deep sea fishing? If so I would suggest that you avoid Mills Charters at Hillarys Boat Harbour, near Perth West Australia, as they failed to deliver their programme in full when I travelled with them on 3rd March 2017 at a cost of AU$220. There were some 14 anglers on this trip all of whom were... More

After a very calm warm week we were looking forward to great trip. But the forecast was right on the day, 25 knot winds, 4 metre seas, pouring with rain but still the owner insisted on sending the crew and customers out to earn the almighty dollar. Once again over 20 people on one side of the boat and lots... More

There were 27 people fishing on the boat today, off one side of course. It was far too crowded and it resulted in the lines being continuously tangled. I didn't catch one fish. A few people on the bot did, but we spent more time fixing tangled lines than fishing. The bloke next to me wasn't happy either. He paid... More

25 people fishing off one side of the boat with a bare 18 inches of space between them, this is what happened today. I spent more time untangling other people's lines from my own than I did actually fishing. All those lines in the water in that close proximity and the skipper didn't have the foresight to see what was... More

Thanks Mills Charters for an amazing day on the water. Started with a great breakfast as we headed out to find the fish. Such a professional operation and so much to enjoy about my first time on a fishing charter. I didn't catch anything but I'm the only one on board who didn't - speaks volumes about my fishing ability... More

I will start by saying that a few people caught some decent size fish. However, they were few compared to the 24 or so people on board. Usually you could say, 'well that's fishing' but not this time. When I go fishing I want the opportunity to wait a bit, test the line and maybe feel a bite - catching... More

Check-in time for our whale watching tour was at 8:30am. Some advise to take note is to cater for at least an extra 30 mins should you pass through Mitchell Freeway to the jetty. It's always jammed with traffic. Not to worry as the tour will wait at least 10 minutes to check-in. If you have kids, or unsure of... More

Thank you for your feedback and detailed review traffic can be frustrating when the cars build up and that's why we allow the half hour check in so that people who mistime their journey can still board in time! Your seasickness ideas are spot on, always must take the pill before you board or set sail! Our recommendation in our... More

I'm writing on behalf of my brother that went on that trip in Oct'2016, he said the trip was well prepared, he's very happy with the experience, except that he's not prepared to bring a set of batter, we saw people brought into the boat but have no idea why, so this is to hook up on the rod so...
