Spend a terrific day outdoors smooth sailing and catching a few slippery ones along the waters off Geelong. All bait, tackle, a sizzling BBQ and drinks are provided, so you'll have loads of fun reeling up a diverse range of fish. All fish you catch will be cleaned, filleted and bagged.
Grab the family and enjoy a fun-filled half day fishing trip along the waters off Geelong. 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 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. A sizzling BBQ along with unlimited tea, coffee and hot milo are provided on board to keep you energised.
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.
Once this experience has been confirmed, changes are made at the discretion of the experience provider and arranged directly with them according to this policy:
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 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.
This experience departs from Geelong, VIC.
