Deep-Sea Fishing Charter on the Sunshine Coast

by Sunshine Coast Afloat Duration 5h+ Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
From Price is NZ$179 per traveller

Take to the deep waters of the open ocean during a guided deep-sea fishing experience on the Sunshine Coast. Sip an ice-cold drink or warm coffee as you sail beyond the very safe river bar and into the Coral Sea where you can angle for the wide variety of saltwater species including red Emperor, coral trout, Snapper and several types of cod.

You start by meeting your vessel’s Skipper and crew on the Mooloolaba waterfront. Then, venture on board a completely custom tailored fishing vessel and breathe in the intoxicating ocean air while you make your way across the Coral Sea.

Far from shore, your on-board crew even bait crab traps, and then sends up to 20 of them off the back of the boat to lure the tasty crustaceans while you fish. Your crew are on board to ensure you have full assistance where ever needed. They will set up your fishing tackle for you and prepare the various kinds of bait for your use. Cold drinks and snacks are always on hand for your enjoyment. Depending on the length of the charter you will even have the opportunity to enjoy a hot BBQ meal, all while surrounded by the lapping waves of the Coral Sea. Then it back to relax, and wait for that all important nibble.

Feel your worries float away in the breeze while your experienced crew leads you to a series of prime fishing locations. As the charter comes to a close, the crew will “gut and gill” your catch, and bag and ice them to enable you to take them home with ease. And let’s not forget the crab traps set on your way out. The local spanner crabs that are caught during the return trip, are sorted, and even cooked and iced down, for you to feast on at your leisure.
