A magnificent charter from beginning to end. Mark and Angela are amazing hosts. Freckle is a sincerely hard working deckie and together they make an amazing team who work hard and tirelessly to put you on to the fish. We heard about Reef Encounters through a friend and have been wanting to hop on board for some time but were hesitant about the distance. Finally we bit the bullet and drove 14 hours from Melbourne to the scenic and remote fishing location off Marion Bay. Boy, it was so worth it! It’s only been a day and we are already arranging our next trip back. Thank you Mark, Angela and Freckle! 10/10

Just returned from one of the best days fishing off Pondalowie Bay. Mark and Freckle put us big fish on every spot. I think we caught over 12 different spcies. Incredible. Thanks for a great day and I am already looking forward to coming back in January. Thanks Ben

We book every year with Mark and he hasn’t disappointed us yet! He and his deckhand Nathan always go above and beyond to find fish for us. Also has plenty of space in the two-storey accommodation which fantastic facilities. We have people come from as far as Bendigo and Mildura just to go on this great fishing charter & to catch up with mates. Thanks for another great weekend Mark and see you next year!!! Mick G

Went out with Mark and his off siders from Reef Encounter Fishing Charters, for a spot of fishing of the Waters of Marion Bay SA. What great day. Mark and crew extremely PROFESSIONAL and got us into catching some great fish, three of the young blokes on board got a Sampson each. All tagged and released. Mark, thank you from the Werribee crew, Graeme
