What are the fishing options?

Harbour Fishing Fishing in sheltered waters is not what it used to be in Sydney. Since commercial fishing in Sydney has been strictly regulated and the pollution laws have become stricter and better enforced, Sydney Harbour is regenerating quickly in both fauna and flora. As a result, it is bringing in an abundance of both small and large fish in numbers that haven't been seen in Sydney since the 1950s.

The expected catch will differ according to the seasons, day time and weather. On our fishing charters, you are with experts who can guide you to the best spots at the best times.
Possible catch: Flathead, Bream, Whiting, Black fish, Bonito, Jew fish, Mackerel, King fish, Trevally, Salmon, Silver Drummer, Tuna, Luderik, Leather jacket, yellowtail and more

Reef Fishing
There are many offshore reefs and wrecks around the Sydney region. These play host to a large range of fish that congregate in their sheltered waters. Most are about 20 minutes boat ride from Sydney Heads. You can catch King fish, large Dolphin Fish in summer and Snapper in winter, Morwong, Tuna and lots more!

Sports Fishing
Sport fishing is called 'sports' because it is meant to be action packed and muscle building! It's great fun to play the line to reel in fish averaging around one metre long fighting against you. Experience action packed fishing in Sydney for such species as for Mahi Mahi (Dolphin fish) , King fish.

Game Chair Fishing
Game chair fishing takes sports fishing to a new level where you're strapped to the game chair so it assists your reeling ability to really go after the BIG ones! In summer, Marlin, Giant Mahi Mahi, Wahoo and Tuna are popular catches and in the winter Yellowfin Tuna and Mako sharks.

Luxury Fishing Charters
Our fleet boasts the finest luxury fishing boats in Sydney for charter.  Why pay for a whole boat set up and only use it a few times a year? It makes more sense to just hire a boat complete with all the latest technology, professional fishing gear and then leave all the boat maintenance and clean up happily in your wake.

Corporate Fishing Trips
A popular option for a team building adventure is a group offshore fishing tour or inshore fishing competitions. For more information see Corporate Fishing Competitions on Sydney Harbour

Inshore Fishing
Since commercial fishing has been restricted inshore, the mighty recreational angler has claimed a few more titles thanks to increased numbers of fish in Sydney Harbour. Sydney Harbour is popular for sheltered waters throughout the year.
The fish have their seasons and we can advise what is running at the moment for you.  Our favourite time of year is when the tailor comes in droves batting the water with fervour. You have the option to rent a private fishing charter boat with a skipper or hire a self-drive boat.  A skippered boat will leave you for more time to fish and will allow you to explore to a larger area of the harbour. The self-drive fishing boat is cheaper and lots of fun.

Do I need a fishing licence?
Tours include a recreational fishing licence for the duration of the charter, so you do not need to worry about applying for the mandatory licence from Roads and Maritime Services. The Sydney Harbour Escapes team are proud to host the best fishing charter boats Sydney has to offer.  If you see a private fishing charter boat or fishing trip package you like, please contact us and we will check the charter boat date availability for you and book in your fishing cruise.
