Deep Sea Fishing Charters

We supply fishing tackle and bait

Everything you need to catch a fish

Snapper, trevally, morwong, flathead, kingfish and many more

On our fishing trips:
you catch 'em you keep 'em

Kingfisher is an elegant wooden trawler, adapted for deep sea fishing charters and licensed to carry 20 passengers offshore. Stable and comfortable, with an awning over the rear deck, she is ideal for corporate and social groups.

Cruise with Captain Adrian Salter through Sydney Harbour, the finest harbour in the world, and offshore to where the fish are, then experience great fishing at some of the many productive reefs and fish feeding grounds a few nautical miles to sea from Sydney Heads.

Sydney's most popular saltwater fishing charter

We fish 7 days a week - check our calendar for dates

Experienced crew: to help you enjoy the day

We only take whole boat bookings. With apologies to the many people who are on their own and looking for a pleasant day fishing, we no longer offer shared charters or gift vouchers. If you want to come out on Kingfisher, please find enough friends to make it worthwhile, then book the whole boat. The prices for various trip options are listed below.

For a firm booking, we need your contact name, 24 hour phone number and credit card details as security. The credit card will not be charged before the trip unless you cancel and we can't get a replacement charter or you don't turn up at the wharf. If that happens, there is a $400 cancellation fee. Payment is due on boarding the boat and can be cash, credit card or company cheque.

Please look up the booking calendar to find a suitable day. There is always a long waiting list for weekends, so, if you need a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, please book early. If your group can get together during the week, we can usually arrange a weekday charter on short notice.

The departure and set down times shown below relate to pick up from the Balmain/Darling Harbour/Lavender Bay area. Please let us know if you would like to arrange different times/places.

We don't have gift vouchers for individuals but a gift certificate for a full charter is available and the recipient/s can then arrange the first available date.

Reef and bottom fishing - Morning trip

Available 7 days a week, all seasons - this is the most popular trip, suitable for experienced anglers as well as first timers, social and corporate groups, birthdays, etc. People relax, do some fishing and usually catch a feed of fine table fish.

We fish 5 to 10 kM offshore, over a selection of the productive reefs and fish feeding grounds within easy reach of Sydney. Depending on conditions, 12-14 people can fish at the same time. In most social groups this works out well, because several people are happy to relax, socialise, take photos and take turns fishing. - If you are all die-hard fishos, however, we suggest limiting your numbers.

Includes the boat and crew, top quality fishing tackle and bait, instruction and assistance when necessary.

Minimum price $1,200 for up to 12 people, then $100 per extra person, maximum 20 people.

Time: usually 5:45/6:00am to around 1:30 pm

Reef and bottom fishing - Twilight trip

Available during the daylight saving period from November to March. Similar to the day trip listed above but in the evening. Includes the boat and crew, top quality fishing tackle and bait, instruction and assistance when necessary.

Minimum price $1,200 for up to 12 people, then $100 per extra person, maximum 20 people.

Time: 1:45/2:00pm to sunset.

Light Game & Deep Reef fishing

Maximum 10 anglers. We travel further out to fishing spots like 'Twelve Mile' and similar grounds. Fish caught on these deeper reefs include snapper, kingfish, trevally and long fin perch. On the way we troll a spread of lures for light tackle gamefish. Fishing these spots, however, is not always possible, because it depends on the ocean current - if the current is too strong we can't fish. Includes the boat and crew, top quality fishing tackle and bait, instruction and assistance when necessary.

$1,400 for up to 10 people.

Time: 5:45/6:00am to around 2:30 pm

Game Fishing

Maximum 6 anglers. Only available mid-week unless booked well in advance. May include very deep water drop-line fishing if the conditions of wind and current are suitable. We target different fish acording to season - contact us for more details. Includes the boat and crew, top quality fishing tackle and bait, instruction and assistance when necessary.

$1,650 for up to 6 people.

A 10 hour day - 6:00 am start.

Harbour cruises

A relaxing look at magnificent Sydney Harbour from the water. Only available mid-week or evenings unless booked well in advance for 6 hours or more.

$750 for 3 hours, then $250 per additional hour or part-hour. Maximum 25 people.

Catering is not included in the above prices but we can provide lunch if required. For $25 pp we have morning snacks and a full BBQ with rump steak, sausages, fried onions, bread rolls and soft drinks.

We don't supply alcohol but you may bring your own - no glass bottles please.
