Please find below a list of frequently asked questions we receive, if you have any others please contact us below:
Can charters be run out of surrounding ports such as Ulladulla or Jervis Bay?
We can run charters out of surrounding ports however as our vessel is permanently moored within Batemans Bay marina there may be additional costs associated with relocating the vessel. However if you have a full charter, we may be feeling generous and include this for no extra cost! Alternatively it may be more cost effective to pick you up and drop you off within our 12 seater bus.
What is the minimum number of people per charter?
The minimum number is four (4) participants per charter, this is set to ensure our costs such as fuel, wages etc are covered. We can take out charters with less than four (4) people however the cost of the charter would be equal to four (4) participants.
What's Biting? What is the best species to target this time of year?
Typically something! We spend a lot of time on the water and have extensive experience fishing the local area therefore we know when to target certain species to maximise success rates! Call us today and we can discuss what's biting!
Do you consider special requests outside of your typical services?
Yes, if the vessel is available we are happy to work in with you and your requirements. Get in contact and we can make it happen!
I only want to book for one spot, can I be added to another charter so save booking the whole boat?
Potentially, if you are only looking to book for one spot please give us a call and we can see what we can do. We typically have two options, option 1 we would contact the crew that has charted the boat and ask if they would mind if another person fished on board, which would also lower the cost for them. Depending on their response determines if we can fit you on. Option 2 is if we have multiple people wanting only one or two spots we can package you together to run the charter.
I note you also do hotel transfer, how much extra does this cost?
Yes, we have an 12 seater bus that we can arrange pick up and drop off. Pricing will depend on the pick up and drop off location, we also factor in what charter you have booked. Typically is would be around $10-$20 per person.
Will you bring me home if I get sick?
Short answer, no. However if everyone on board is sick and is ready to come home we will pack up and head home. Although typically if you get sick there is a comfy bed down stairs where you can curl up into the fetal position and tough it out!
We are true pirates, therefore can we bring alcohol on board?
Arrrr you certainly cannn! Although cans are preferred, we also offer pick up and drop off in our bus to save you fighting over who is the designated driver!
Will I catch fish?
Well you certainly won't catch them at home! So you have more chance catching fish with us! There would be no one on board crankier than the Captain if no fish were caught!
