Booked this trip to take some family on who are holidaying in Perth who were very excited by the idea & i must say it wasn't a terrible experience.. However like my rating suggests 'Average' experience all the same. Pros - I caught a fish - Nice ride out on a calm ocean. Cons - Too many people on the... More

Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear you caught a fish and enjoyed the day on the water. It can be a very stressful day for crew when there are increased amount of tangles as a result of minimal wind but it's all part and parcel of fishing. We wish you all the best, thanks again. More

Bedtime for me after the worst day of my life. Half a hour into a 8 hour sea fishing trip I hit the worst sea sickness knowing to man. It was steaming out both holes 😢. After what seemed the longest and worst time in my life I managed to get a breath and wipe the constant stream of tears... More

Thank you for your feedback. What a shame you got seasick, we do advise to take seasick tablets before departure, but unfortunately the sea can get the better of some people early on in the day! The feedback we got from the rest of your group was very positive and they all appeared to have a great day out. We... More

This was a great day out with my son. We scored a pretty rough trip out but once the wind died it was great fun. The crew were very helpful and kept everyone's lines in the water despite heaps of tangles. Breakfast and lunch provided. Don't forget the sunscreen.

We booked the deep sea fishing charter leaving at 6am and returning at 3pm. A great days fishing. Kyle the deckhand was excellent, and went out of his way to ensure our experience was memorable. It cerrainly was. With Dhufish and Snapper to take home who could complain.

Started off a good day at the Hillarys Boat Harbour with a morning whale watch with Mills Charters (Sunday 15th Nov) - took the crew a while to spot some whales but when they did we saw a few tails, and on the surface activity.

I went out with mills this past week on a whale watching tour and unfortunately did not see whales. Although that part was a letdown, I completely understand we are dealing with nature and no one can predict when and where these lovely beasts will pop up! On my day, they didn’t, but I can honestly say the tour was... More

I would like to start by saying that I am well aware that with any wild animal there is no guarantee to see it in its environment! However when you are offering a 'whale watching' experience your customers should be given a little more information at booking. When I booked, there was no mention that we were in the final...

Thanks so much for your feedback. Last season we finished on the 20th November, the year previously 3rd December so it is impossible to put a finish date in advance for tours dealing with nature. We have been operating for many years and can tell you that the whales do come through in waves and 2 seasons ago for instance... More
