There were 27 people fishing on the boat today, off one side of course. It was far too crowded and it resulted in the lines being continuously tangled. I didn't catch one fish. A few people on the bot did, but we spent more time fixing tangled lines than fishing. The bloke next to me wasn't happy either. He paid... More

25 people fishing off one side of the boat with a bare 18 inches of space between them, this is what happened today. I spent more time untangling other people's lines from my own than I did actually fishing. All those lines in the water in that close proximity and the skipper didn't have the foresight to see what was... More

Thanks Mills Charters for an amazing day on the water. Started with a great breakfast as we headed out to find the fish. Such a professional operation and so much to enjoy about my first time on a fishing charter. I didn't catch anything but I'm the only one on board who didn't - speaks volumes about my fishing ability... More

I will start by saying that a few people caught some decent size fish. However, they were few compared to the 24 or so people on board. Usually you could say, 'well that's fishing' but not this time. When I go fishing I want the opportunity to wait a bit, test the line and maybe feel a bite - catching... More

Thanks very much for your kind feedback. You were very lucky the whales came out to play on what was the last tour of the season. We are glad it all worked out for you and you enjoyed the trip with us. Hopefully you enjoyed Perth. See you again sometime. More

Check-in time for our whale watching tour was at 8:30am. Some advise to take note is to cater for at least an extra 30 mins should you pass through Mitchell Freeway to the jetty. It's always jammed with traffic. Not to worry as the tour will wait at least 10 minutes to check-in. If you have kids, or unsure of... More

Thank you for your feedback and detailed review traffic can be frustrating when the cars build up and that's why we allow the half hour check in so that people who mistime their journey can still board in time! Your seasickness ideas are spot on, always must take the pill before you board or set sail! Our recommendation in our... More

I'm writing on behalf of my brother that went on that trip in Oct'2016, he said the trip was well prepared, he's very happy with the experience, except that he's not prepared to bring a set of batter, we saw people brought into the boat but have no idea why, so this is to hook up on the rod so...

Thank you for your feedback. We are delighted to hear your brother had a great day out with us. I think you mean battery, not batter, from what you have said in your feedback.

Watched this at end Oct. We were very fortunate that we saw lots of whales during this visit. And I do believe it's due to the season of the whales migration. Tips: 1. The trip is very bumpy, so if you have sea sickness, you might want to consider skipping it. 2. It's a few hours trip and so you... More

Thanks for your feedback. Sounds like you had a great experience with us and the tips are spot on - we always recommend seasickness tablets and to bring snacks and drinks.

We enjoyed going with Mills- saw a lot of whales, even a bunch jumping in the ocean. Great service, great knowledge, big and nice boat. Thanks for a lovely day.
