Embark on a fishing expedition on the magnificent Port Phillip Bay, just minutes from Melbourne. Take your chance at hooking a snapper, whiting, salmon and other season species - they are all just a cast away! During your fishing trip you will also enjoy a sausage sizzle lunch.
Catch the target species of the season including snapper, flathead, whiting and more. Your fishing vessel will be located an easy five minute walk from St Kilda. Upon arrival you will be given a full safety and security brief prior to the vessel leaving port. The boat has marine toilet facilities, a large customer ice box, plus fish-finding and GPS equipment to make your expedition more successful. Your skipper takes real pride in his extraordinary knowledge and passion for fishing, life at sea and the environment. Enjoy a tasty sausage sizzle lunch on board and take home your catch cleaned and bagged.
IMPORTANT: You MUST have a fishing licence. Licences are valid for three days at a cost of $10 per person and are available online (to be purchased the day before once the charter has been confirmed). No guarantee can be made of catching a fish or a guarantee of the weather conditions on the day. Fishing is a sport of chance. The fishing team will aim to maximise your chances with on board tuition and the latest technology in fish finding.
