Fishing Charters

We Go The Extra Mile

Land That Catch

Skipper Kane has been fishing the waters around Jurien Bay for the better part of 20 years and it is safe to say he is in the know of the best fishing spots.

With many different types of fish inhabiting our waters, an action-packed day is guaranteed!
All quality Shimano rods and reels, terminal tackle and bait are supplied to help reeling in that big one.

Key Information

The charter fishing boat is a 7.8 metre aluminium centre console named ‘Here Fishy Fishy’.

We cater for smaller groups (max. 6 people) on our Charters giving you a more authentic and personal experience.

Fishing Charters are priced at $250.00 per person;                                                    or exclusively hire the boat for the day for $1200.00 (max. 6 people).

Departure time is around 6:00 am and we aim to return by 2:00 pm.                Please be at the Jurien Bay Boat Harbour 10 minutes prior to departure of the trip.

Spoil Yourself

Sometimes it’s good to have all of the work taken care of. Before a fishing trip, it’s usually up to you to organise supplies and ready the boat, but on a charter the Skipper and crew do all of the preparations – and the clean-up.

The waters off Jurien Bay are plentiful with quality eating dermersal fish like Dhu Fish and Pink Snapper, so let our local guides show you some of those secret spots for your chance to reel in that fish of a lifetime.

From December to April the Spanish Mackerels migrate off the coast along with Dolphin Fish and Yellow Fin Tuna. These are classed as pelagic fish and it’s an awesome thrill to catch them!

A Fresh Perspective

There is always something new to learn. Our Skipper Kane has been fishing for decades, he’s a source of wisdom and know-how and he doesn’t mind sharing.

Have the option to either fish with bait or try your luck at jigging with a selection of soft and hard lures available.

On our Fishing Charters we will pull our Lobster Pots with the chance to get some crayfish which you can take home on top of your fair share of the day’s catch.

Crayfish availability can vary depending on the time of year and ocean conditions.

A Good Catch

Have you ever returned from a fishing trip without a single catch? It’s happened to all of us. It’s fair to say that Skipper Kane is in the know about where you have to be to catch fish, combining his equipment with his experience. Jurien Bay being the Skipper’s home town for over 30 years increases your chance of a successful day chasing fish.

The Novice

We cater for beginners through to the experienced fisherman.

If you have a friend who’s a fishing novice, an excellent way to lift their excitement levels is through charter fishing.

Charter fishing could be an awe inspiring adventure for the novice.

We will guide you through the day with helpful tips and tricks to help land that unforgettable catch.

Even once the day has ended we will clean and prepare your catch for you to take home and enjoy the fresh fruits of the sea.

There is no dress code for the charters but we suggest you clothe to the conditions of the day.
You are welcome to bring along your own fishing gear, please let us know beforehand so we can organise space on deck.

It is not recommended to drink milk or consume any dairy products before venturing out on the water.
Seek advice on sea sickness tablets if you suffer from motion sickness or if you worry you might.

You will need to pack your own lunch and BYO soft drinks and alcohol.
Please bring an esky to take your catch home, but leave it in the car as we have plenty of cold storage on the boat.

Turquoise Safaris goes that extra mile.
Book with us for your next offshore adventure – we have got you covered.
