Geelong Fishing Charters offers fun, family-friendly recreational fishing trips for all ages and skillsets.
There are a range of fishing trips available, lasting between 2.5 and 8 hours that depart from Wangim Walk, Geelong Waterfront or St. Helen’s Ramp (at the end of Swinburne Street, North Geelong), depending on weather conditions. Participants are required to have a valid fishing license before the trip, available online from the Victorian Fishing Authority website or the Services Victoria App.
Charters include all bait, tackle, food (barbeque sausages in bread, salad, fruit, healthy snacks, jam donuts or lamingtons), as well as tea/coffee/hot milo to start. Any legal, correct-sized fish caught (usually flatties, but also pinkies/snapper, Australian salmon, rock cod, whiting, and gummy/school sharks) can be filleted for you and packed on ice to take home. Bag limits apply.
Onboard is a toilet and there is a licensed bar (Sun-Thur 9am-8pm; Fri-Sat 9am-11pm). Snacks and non-alcoholic drinks are available for an extra charge.
Children under 10 are free and 10-15 year-olds are half-price, making it a very affordable fun day out for the family. Repeat participants are offered a loyalty card that rewards one adult trip free for every nine adult tickets purchased.
Charter places book out very quickly so advance bookings are highly recommended to avoid disappointment. Gift vouchers & private charters are also available. Companion cards accepted.
