RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
Combine the quiet thrill of the gummy shark chase with the allure of the snapper fight on this six hour fishing trip. Occurring only three times a year, this trip relies on the aligning of many factors, making it so much sweeter when you reel them in. All bait, tackle, food and drinks are provided.
Thrill at the chance to embark on an extraordinary six hour gummy shark and fishing expedition. The trip is a delicate alignment of many factors including the phases of the moon, stages of the tides, time of day, depth of the water and the time of year. This is why it occurs only three times a year between November and February. You will be boarding the 'Corio Princess,' a covered, flat-level purpose-built vessel that accommodates wheelchairs and mobility aids. Your knowledgeable captain will provide you with premium bait and Shimano rods and reels, arming you with everything you need on your unique quest. All legal-sized fish you catch can be filleted and packed on ice for you to take away and enjoy at home. A sizzling BBQ along with unlimited tea, coffee and hot milo are provided on board to keep you energised.
Participants must be at least 14 years old. Participants under 18 require an adult to accompany them. Participants must be over 18 to purchase alcohol from the on board bar. All participants will have their temperature taken (contactless) upon embarking to ensure they don't show any symptoms of COVID-19. We reserve the right to refuse entry to anyone showing obvious symptoms of COVID-19.
Maximum of 10 participants.
Spectators are welcome but are required to also purchase a ticket for the appropriate age category.
All charters are subject to weather conditions. Should there be a risk of cancellation due to weather conditions, due the infrequency of this trip, the provider endeavours to offer an alternative date which may be at more unorthodox times such as very early in the morning or late in the evening to accommodate this.
Although the vessel is covered, participants are exposed to the elements, so it's advised to dress very warmly in winter (hat, scarf, gloves, coat, covered shoes) and in summer to bring a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. Handwarmers and sunscreen are also available for purchase on the boat.
Life jackets are provided but not required to be worn for the duration of the charter unless in case of an emergency, due to the size of the boat. As this trip usually runs only about 3-5 times per year (Nov-Feb) and has only 10 places, charters book up very, very quickly. Please book dates well in advance in order to secure a place. For birthdays or special celebrations, please inform us when booking and we will gladly provide a cake (homemade) free of charge.
This experience departs from Geelong, VIC.
