Operating out of Broome, Australia, Broome Coast Charters offer the ultimate fishing adventure to their guests. They’re providing experiences that will suit anglers of all levels – from those fishing for the first time to the veteran angler.

‘The Boss’ was built in 2008 by Preston Craft and measures an impressive 28’ in length. It’s powered by a 360 HP Yanmar engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots. The boat can accommodate up to 6 anglers and features a toilet, a shower, beds, outriggers, a fighting chair, a live bait tank, an esky, and top-notch marine electronics and safety gear. The Boss was designed to act as a multipurpose fishing vessel and does well both offshore and in Broome’s tidal creeks.

Depending on the trip you choose and the bite, you’ll be chasing after Sailfish, Marlin, Cobia, Red Emperor, Coral Trout, Golden Trevally, Barramundi, Threadfin Salmon, Tripletail, Spanish Mackerel, and more. You’ll get to try your hand at bottom fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, popping, and drifting.

All fishing equipment will be supplied by Broome Coast Charters, including pristine Shimano rods and reels, lures, and live bait. Charters include transfers to and from their purpose-built vessel as well as fishing licences and an assortment of snacks, soft drinks, and water. Full day charter guests will also have lunch provided. Fish cleaning and filleting are included in the price.

It is recommended that guests bring hats, towels, cameras, and shoes that can be easily removed. Guests are welcome to bring their own alcohol aboard.
