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.
Have the whole boat to yourselves and enjoy an epic day chasing fish in the waters off Geelong. With your choice on where to go, what fish to target and what food and drink is served, you're in for a seriously good time. All legal-sized fish you catch can be filleted and bagged for you to take home.
You're the boss for this private fishing charter! Choose where to go, what time to leave, what fish to target and what food and drinks are served to keep you and up to 25 mates completely satisfied. You will be boarding the 'Corio Princess,' a covered, flat-level purpose-built vessel that accommodates wheelchairs and mobility aids. All bait, tackle and equipment are provided, so you just need to cast a line and wait for that elusive tug. Expect to reel in an eclectic mix of fish including flatties, snapper, gummy sharks, King George whiting, silver whiting, rock cod and so many more. You may catch an occasional banjo shark and puffer fish and although they make for a great photo, they'll get thrown back in. All legal-sized fish you catch can be filleted and packed on ice for you to take away and enjoy at home.
Participants under 18 require an adult to accompany them. Participants must be over 18 to purchase alcohol from the on board bar. All participants over 18 must show photo ID and valid fishing licences after embarking upon vessel. 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.
Minimum of 10 and maximum of 25 participants.
Spectators are welcome but are required to also purchase a ticket for the appropriate age category.
All private charters are subject to weather conditions.
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. Hand warmers 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. Sea-sickness pills are not usually required as the Corio Princess is built on two pontoons so is very similar to a house-boat in structure and does not go out on very windy days or in choppy waters. In the summer months (Nov-Mar) charters book up very quickly. Please book dates well in advance in order to secure the date that suits you best. Days and times of charters vary. Please check the website and facebook pages for latest schedules. For birthdays or special celebrations, please inform us when booking and we will gladly provide a cake (homemade) free of charge. A confirmation text will be sent in the days prior to the charter regarding times and locations of departure as well as what is included in the trip. Please read all the relevant information and reply OK.
This experience departs from Geelong, VIC.
