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 hot drinks are provided to start, 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 'Sidewinder I,' a partially covered, purpose-built fishing vessel. 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, Australian Salmon 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 snacks and tea, coffee and hot milo to start.
There are 2-3 steps to board the vessel.
Minimum of 12 and maximum of 20 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 partially 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.
All-day parking is available near the ferris wheel (only in town-side bays); Cunningham Pier, and in the shopping centre carparks nearby (approx. 100m)
This experience departs from Geelong, VIC.
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.
