What could be better than spending time deep sea fishing? Nothing!! Downunder Charters offers you a chance to get out into the ocean and test your skill against the fish. We cater for all levels of experience from beginner to experienced and children over 5 are welcome too. We provide everything you need to catch fish, quality rods and reels, bait and lures. We have 28 years worth of GPS marks so we know where the fish are likely to be. Our vessel "Downunder" is a wide body Shark Cat, 9.85m long and 4.8m wide, meaning she is extremely stable in the water giving a safe and secure ride. With a solid roof over the entire rear deck and seats all round there is plenty of room to fish in comfort. She is currently registered in 2C survey and capable of carrying 12 passengers and 3 crew. She carries a full complement of safety equipment including a 16 man SOLAS liferaft and her crew are all fully qualified with the Australian Maritime Safety Authority. Our charters run for either 6 or 8 hours and you get to keep any fish you catch (subject to State bag/ size and species restrictions). We provide bottled water free and have a good selection of snacks (including gluten free)and softdrinks to purchase on the boat. We would love to see you soon! Come and fish Downunder!

Skipper and crew were just amazing. We took the half day trip and couldn't have asked for a better trip. Skipper moved all around gps coordinator to put everyone on fish. Can't thank them enough for looking after us. Thanks again

Had a great trip with the lads from Downunder. Got enough fish to take home for dinner and it was good that they moved spots as soon as the fishing went quiet. Recommend it for a day out.
