      Absolutely amazing day out
      We had an amzing day out on board Seaquest with mark and jason. These guys are absolute pros. The guys worked hard setting live baits and burleying up while looking after us. It didnt take long before a 7kg tuna was dragged over the side. Several more were caught through the afternoon. Snaaper, trag and other fish were also caught by the group. The guys are knowledgeable and were hapy to answer my sons questions. We also got to see humpback whales and dolphins too. Highly recommend this outfit.

      Fantastic first time out
      Loved it! A really memorable experience—my first time deep sea fishing. Had so much fun. Boat is big and comfortable and staffed with friendly crew. Mark and Bill are both very knowledgeable and helpful. They happily demonstrated how to bait the hook, then removed it and cleaned our fish for us. We moved from reef to reef to ensure we got a chance to catch a variety of species. Overall we caught several snapper, teraglin and one 8kg tuna. If I get a chance to come back I'll happily go out with these guys again.

      Great morning out
      Had a great day out on the water. Nice captain and crew. They were very helpful if you needed them. Fish were just not biting and what we did catch mainly were too small which was disappointing, but that's the nature of fishing. I will definitely book with them again. Well worth it

      Pick your trip based on water temperature
      Even on the way out to sea the captain warned that high water temperatures kept the fish away. Of 12 fishermen only 4 fish were caught on the half day trip. My warning is that the rods are heavy and rewinding 45 metres of line and a heavy sinker (even without a fish onboard your hook) gets tiring so be fit! Two issues for me were that the first mate smoked and flicked his butts straight into the beautiful blue ocean and our fish weren't marked so when we disembarked we were given any fish (same breed)- I wanted the one 'I' caught regardless of size! These issues need to be addressed before I'd go again.

      WORST CHARTER BY FAR
      I don't reccommend going on a charter with these people. Here's why ... 1. the Skipper was extremely rude and arrogant towards customers (including making fun of sick customers ). 2. Deckhand was making remarks about one of the other customers in a very inappropriate manner. 3. Not interested in finding fish for customers, only interested in earning their dollars. 4. Website advertises $90 mon - fri special ( we were originally meant to go Sunday @ $125 each but weather cancelled trip) and they charged us $100 each... ($250 - $180 does not equal = a $50 refund!!!!!!!! ) 5. Boat and fishing gear is in very poor condition 6. Fish, if caught is just shoved into a garbage bag at the end of the trip gutted but nothing else.. NO ice is with it either

    Pretty sure you have reviewed the wrong company, please call me on 0405 381031 Our price is $140 per person. Absolutely none of our websites advertise a special of $90. We would go broke running at $90 per head. Our staff do not make fun of seasick customers. Please call me to discuss, so i can figure out who exactly you did go fishing with so you can rectify this review.

    We received a gift voucher and could not use it before the expiry date so we called several times before the due date to re-schedule for a couple of weeks past the use by date and received no reply. I called again after sending an email and was told that it was bad luck and our $125- was simply down the drain as they did not extend the vchr past the use by date regardless of the circumstances...this is simply bad business and not good enough! A simple, kind gesture would have made all the difference in this circumstance & I'm appalled and disappointed that it wasn't accepted after requesting an extension.

    Hi Narelle. I'm not sure about the claim you called several times, as we make a point of calling back all missed calls, its possible you may have called from a private number, but regardless we have terms and conditions in place for all bookings and gift vouchers. Our Vouchers are sold with a 12 month validity period. We feel this is a more than adequate time frame to use them, given that we operate 7 days a week weather permitting. When they are purchased online, the buyer is required to tick a check box that states "I agree to terms and conditions". It also provides a link to the following . Gift Voucher numbers must be given at the time of booking otherwise they will not be accepted. • Gift Vouchers expire twelve months from date of issue and cannot be extended • Gift Vouchers are not redeemable for cash Our vouchers and booking system is auto-mated and it wont allow a booking to be made with an out of date voucher code. We have clear terms and conditions in place that can be found on our websites that cover gift certificates, bookings, cancellation, safety and weather policies. Most business,s have terms and conditions to ensure smooth efficient viable operation and so staff have guidelines to follow. If we bend the rules for everyone then it defeats the purpose of having terms and conditions and the system becomes a shambles. We are sorry you missed out, but we stand by our terms and conditions and we feel that a year is adequate time to use a gift voucher.

    Hi Zac Sorry to here you were dissapointed. But to clarify, we dont advertise $99. a couple of our competitors do, our advertised price has always been $125. Bait is supplied by Tweed bait and we also cut fresh stuff up out there as we catch it.

    We had a great day out on the boat today although it was a slow day in the morning we were entertained by 3 or 4 dolphins. they were smashing the fish across the back of the boat for entertainment and eating the being released. One fish caught mad air (15ft)smashed behind the boat I seen the whole thing. Old mate got a tuna and we also got a feed for the table, Thanks to the boys Dllon and Jason for an awesome day out and looking forward to going again soon.

    Had a great day out with the family, Crew were friendly and fun. We caught several different fish types and took home a good feed of Snapper and tuskfish. Whale sightings were also an added bonus. Look forward to coming out again later in the year, when we are back on the coast.
