You can have the best boat with the best gear fishing in the best locations but its all a waste of time and money if you don't use "FRESH BAIT " . Honestly i was expecting to land a crab rather than any type of fish . The pilchards that where provided on the day were in there last stages... More

I understand that you were frustrated with your experience GeeDaddy; having no knowledge of your exact name and tour date leaves me to respond from a generalised point of view BAIT: The Deckhand seems to think you used the bait from the Burley bucket not the Bait bucket TRAVEL OFFSHORE: 1/2kms offshore could have been related to the weather conditions...

Thank you for your opinion; I did send you a private message asking for your name and tour date so that I could investigate further and you never replied. It may have taken up to two months to book in your charter tour for a number of reasons: First & foremost ALL Charters are subject to Weather Conditions Bookings, Discovery... More

I had the best day ever. Our skipper Phil and Deck Hand Andrew, were the best, the day was easy, comfortable and their knowledge of the water was phenomenal. Phil and Andrew were obliging and nothing was a bother( even the countless times out lines got tangled). For a quite time of the year, we caught heaps of fish. Thanks... More

Had such a great night out with the guys from discovery. Everyone caught fish and they were ready and eager to help throughout. Cleaned all the fish and gave us a real hands on, fun and informative trip. Would recommend to friends and go again!!

Went out with the guys from Discovery Fishing today. Had a great experience. The layout of the boat allowed all on board plenty of space without being in each other's way. The crew were both informative and eager to help out with any problems. They were patient and tailored to the needs of the guests whether their abilities were at... More

I booked a trip for my husband's birthday. The 1st date was cancelled because there were not enough people to run the boat... Unfortunately, they let us know only the day before at 5 pm, so it was impossible for us to organise something else. I understand they have to wait the last minute but it wasn't convenient for us....
