Skipper Ryan and deckhand Jordan were fantastic, we had a great day out. They worked hard and all 12 passengers on-board got their Tuna, before a bout of bottom fishing producing plenty of quality table fish. Many of the 12 tuna caught were released by choice with a couple of quality fish also being tag worthy. Was a great relaxed day with plenty of laughs. Not my first trip with Reef Encounters and definitely will not be my last. Cannot recommend Reef Encounters highly enough. Cheers guys, see you again soon!

Great charter, excellent crew and a great day. The boat was full but we all had plenty of space and bait. They took care of everything, an excellent day all round.

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
