What more can be said. Went out at first light and watched a magnificent sunrise over the stern of the boat. Food supplied all day....and then the fishing. Wow caught so many fish including my 1.25 Jew Fish. The skipper and deckhand worked non stop to help us land the fish. Undoubtedly the best day of fishing I have ever had.

Did 2 x full day charters 10 days apart. Fantastic fun. Dan the skipper and his deck hands were great. Had to shuffle our booking a bit due to COVID changes and Alisha was super helpful. Looking forward to dining on a few goldys in cold Melbourne.

Did the three day live aboard in July 2021 which was ok. Customer service with Alicia is very bad. Try not to deal with her she’s very arrogant and doesn’t give you much information or she will give you wrong information. She also over charged us for the fish boxes. You are better off ringing Steve the owner. The food was very average but plentiful, nothing special. They didn’t cook any of the fish that we caught. There’s coffee and tea on board along with desalinated fresh water. There was soft drinks on board but you must byo alcohol, bottled water and anything else. One of the two toilets onboard has a clear window, so no privacy. Sleeping is ok but take an extra pillow. It’s very noisy at night with the water slapping against the hull of the boat being aluminium. Fishing gear supplied is good. Don’t expect to take home a lot of fish or what you catch. The crew through out a lot of good pieces of fish and meat. Also the way the fish are divided is not the best.

My wife & I did a full day charter on July 12. Couldn't be happier. The skipper didn't muck around if we weren't catching fish and quickly moved on to better spots. The fish we caught included Baldchin groper, Coral trout, Gold Snapper, Trevally, Tricky snapper, Spanish Flag. Everyone went home with a good feed. It was great to get some good fishing in without getting savaged by sharks like we do in WA. The crew were very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. Thoroughly recommend these guys
