Australia is home to a dazzling amount of different marine species, including fish. Although commercial fishing has been banned from Sydney Harbour, recreational fishingis still allowed.
Because of that, you may be thinking of taking a trip with your friends, family, or coworkers. Fishing is a great bonding experience, and what better way to do it than through charter fishing? You'll get to fish in style and comfort!
If you're thinking of charter fishing in Sydney, then keep reading. We'll tell you all about what you can enjoy while out on the waters with Sydney Harbour Escapes.
Luxury Sport Fishing
Charter fishingis a great way to indulge in your hobby. You'll be able to get onto the beautiful waters in a vessel that offers more than just sport fishing. Read on to see what our luxury sport fishing boats have to accommodate you and your guests.
A Wide Variety of Fish
If you choose to be more adventurous and go outside of Sydney Harbour, you'll have the opportunity to fish in the Eastern Australian Current, as it's pretty close to land. With offshore fishing, you'll encounter fish such as spearfish, marlin, tuna, and broadbill.
Even if you stay within Sydney Harbour, there are still plenty of fish to catch.
No Need to Rent Equipment
If you've put off charter fishing because the thought of lugging all your fishing equipment is enough to put you off, then there are no more excuses now. We at Sydney Harbour Escapes provide all the equipment you need, so you won't have to worry about bringing a thing except for yourselves!
Does your group consist of fishers of all levels? No problem!
With every charter, we have professional guides on board to help you find where the best fishing is. Then, they'll help you and your group with techniques and the proper equipment to use to get you the best fishing results.
For those of you who want to fish for long periods of time, you may be concerned about your meals. The thought of a paper bag lunch isn't too appealing.
This is why when you book either our classic or luxury charter boats, we have a range of catering options available. All you have to do is leave the food prep up to us! When you and your group need a break and want to have a bite, our crew will serve up some tasty meals.
Fantastic Photo Ops
Whether it's your first trip out or your 100th, fishing's always a unique experience. And you want to capture those memorable moments to remember for the rest of your life.
