Reef Fishing Charter
This is our most booked fishing charter and aims to put you on top of some spectacular fishing reefs located just of Sydney. We fish between 3 and 12 nautical miles from the coast in 50 to 120 meters of productive fishing waters. We target all reef species and use only quality Shimano, Penn rods and reels and fresh baits.
Your skipper will give fishing tuition throughout the day whether you're a first timer or a professional angler. All fish caught can be cleaned by the crew for you to take home. 

Sports Fishing Charter
The main aim is to catch larger predatory and pelagic fish such as Mahi Mahi (dolphin fish), Kingfish, Jewfish, Marlin and Tuna species. We light troll to 9 Mile, 12 Mile or Long Reef for Marlin and Tuna then live bait and jig for Kingfish. Reef fishing is also carried out on these charters to maximize your catch. We also fish around Sydney’s FADS which are artificial Fish Aggregating Devices.

Game Fishing Charter
Our Game Fishing Charters run all year round and are a full day in duration, starting at 7am and finishing at 5pm. The season will determine what pelagic game fish we chase. The winter months from June to October is the peak season for tuna and shark fishing. We target Yellow fin, Albacore, Blue fin and Mako Sharks.
From November to May it is magic Marlin season. Blue, Black and Striped Marlin are targeted by trolling heavy game lures. We also target Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Short Billed Spear Fish and Sharks.
Game Fishing is the most extreme form of fishing with smaller Marlin weighing 70 to 80kg and larger Marlin being over 200+kg. Be prepared for a supreme battle with these truly amazing fish.

We are proud to keep them this way.

What toilet facilities are on board?
A Team is equipped with one modern marine toilet with easy access for charter.

Catered Food and Beverage Options
Can we organize a meal on board?

A Team is a BYO vessel, which means you would have to bring your own food.

BYO Catering
Are we allowed to bring our own food and drinks?

Yes, we suggest that you bring boat friendly food that requires minimum preparation e.g. platter-style cold foods or food that can be cooked on the BBQ. 

Is there a BBQ on board?
The vessel is equipped with an outdoor gas BBQ. Please note, that adverse weather conditions may make barbecuing difficult. When at anchor, the crew will be happy to cook your BBQ food for you.

What kitchen equipment is available?
All crockery, cutlery, glassware and ice will need to be provided by the client.

Do I have to wash up the dishes?
No! Sit back and relax and the crew will do that for you.

Where can we put our food and drinks?
The boat has two eskies on board. You are able to bring along additional coolers if required. Older style metal eskies are not permitted as they damage the boat.

Do we need to bring ice for the cooler / esky?

On Tour
Can we have music on board?

Your skipper can take you most places within Sydney Harbour, providing it is within the surveyed boundaries. Should your guests wish to go to a specific location within Sydney Harbour please let us know at time of briefing.

Can we extend our charter time during the charter?
Yes, although this is subject to availability. Please note, the charter will be extended based on the decision of the captain on board and payment will be processed post charter by authorised bond.

Booking and Payment
How do I secure my booking?

A minimum 50% deposit is required to confirm booking, with the balance payable 14 days prior to commencement of the charter. Upon payment of your deposit, a Skippered Charter Contract will be emailed to you, confirming details relevant to your charter, which must be signed and returned.

See General Booking Information button below for details.

Wet Weather
What happens in the event of rain?

A Team provides excellent protection from the elements because of its covered area.
We cannot offer a 'Blue Sky Guarantee'. If boating conditions are unsafe, as determined by the management of Sydney Harbour Escapes, we will offer a six month voucher where you can reschedule your charter based on availability.

Preparations and Arrival
What do you advise we bring along for our charter?

As conditions can vary on the water, it is suggested that you bring along a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, swimmers, and seasonal jumper or jacket. Please wear white-soled shoes or non-marking boating shoes. Strictly no black soled shoes or stiletto-heeled shoes, as this will damage the decking.

Does our party need to get there before the set time of the charter?
All your party should be at the designated pick up point at least 15 minutes prior to your charter time to allow loading of passengers and gear and to enable enough time for the skipper's safety briefing. Please note, your charter will start and finish at the times on your contract.

Can one of our guests be picked up late and dropped off early from another wharf?
Multiple pick up and drop off points are not recommended as this will shorten your charter time significantly. We suggest that guests wishing to join the charter late or leave early should arrange alternative transportation via water taxi at their own cost. Please ask one of the Sydney Harbour Escapes team members for a Water Taxi contact.
