You really don’t have to feel like a sardine in a can, just because you are Charter Fishing! Comfort and space is a key part of enjoying yourself on the water! This Half Day Charter is a great way to begin to experience Deep Sea Fishing and Crabbing while still having the majority of the day remaining for other activities. An extremely popular charter for beginners and visitors.
This length of trip is ideal for anyone new to Deep Sea Charter Fishing, as well as anyone just wanting to get out on the ocean for a few hours for a bit of fishing. You will travel up to 9 nautical miles off the coast on this charter. Small reefs and crops are fairly abundant in these areas, attracting a wide array of species. You are greeted in the morning by our friendly staff. Sit back and enjoy a hot drink while listening to our safety briefing, familiarization and staff introductions. As we head out for the day we will slow down and drop the crab nets, continue on our travels and pick them up on our way back in. Enjoy the use of a variety of types of rods, reels and bait. Snacks, unlimited soft drinks and bottled water are supplied throughout the trip. We have male/female toilets on board along with the most up to date electronic safety and navigation equipment. Your fish and crabs are cleaned, bagged and iced for you to take home.
Crabbing may also be included, but this is heavily dependent on the weather and the tides, and cannot be guaranteed.
Please note that Spanner Crabbing will be decided on the day and is dependent on the daily ocean and trip conditions.
Your vessel takes up to 22 passengers and 3 crew. On mixed charters, numbers are kept to around 18 so as not to crowd the boat and guests have plenty of room to move about and enjoy the day.
In the event of rain or inclement weather your experience will still go ahead unless contacted by the experience provider.
Please wear comfortable clothing, including closed toed shoes.
This experience departs from Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast.
