Geelong Fishing Charters
Geelong Fishing Charters offers family-friendly recreational fishing trips for all ages, levels, and abilities on the 'Corio Princess', a flat-level covered boat, purpose-built to accommodate wheelchairs, mobility aids, and strollers/prams.
On-board is a toilet as well as a licensed bar (11am to 11pm). Snacks and non-alcoholic drinks are available for an extra charge.
Charters include all bait, tackle, food (mini-pizzas or party pies, barbecue sausages in bread, salad, fruit, hot jam donuts and a sweet), as well as unlimited tea/coffee/milo. Any legal, correct-sized fish caught (usually flatties, but also pinkies/snapper, garfish, whiting, and gummy/school sharks) can be filleted for you and packed on ice to take home. Bag limits apply.
Fishing trips last four hours and depart from Yarra Street, Geelong or St. Helen’s Ramp (at the end of Swinburne Street, North Geelong), depending on weather conditions. Participants are required to have a valid fishing license prior to the trip, available online from the Victorian Fishing Authority website.
Children under 10 are free and 10-15 year-olds are half-price, making it a very affordable fun day out for the family. Repeat participants are offered a loyalty card which rewards one adult trip free for every nine adult tickets purchased.
Currently, due to social distancing measures, numbers are limited so bookings are highly recommended. Gift vouchers and private charters are also available. Companion cards accepted.
