Deep Sea Fishing Co. Sunshine Coast

Book your next trip with Deep Sea Fishing Co. Sunshine Coast and find out what keeps anglers coming back to Tewantin for more. Your guide for the day is Captain Clinton, allowing you to benefit from years of local experience.

Depending on conditions, you might hook into Amberjack, Bonito, Cobia, Coral Trout, Mahi Mahi, Red Emperor Snapper, Pearl Perch, Bluefin Tuna, Mackerel, Black Marlin, Wahoo, and whatever else is biting.
You’ll target your catch by spinning, popping, trolling, drifting, jigging, bottom fishing, or maybe something more specialized in this area. Capt. Clinton also offers fly fishing. For the more adventurous among you, there’s bowfishing.

Families making a day of it will be glad to know that kids are welcome aboard! If you don’t have a child-sized life vest of your own, be sure to ask if there’s one on board.

Your day begins aboard a 36’ Custom Catamaran with room for 10 passengers. It comes with outriggers, a fighting chair, and all the essentials. There’s a toilet on board for your convenience. What’s more, this vessel is wheelchair accessible. Capt. Clinton has rods and reels for you, along with lures. Live bait is available, but you should ask the captain whether you’ll be catching it yourself.

There will be a First Mate on board to help your trip run smoothly. A 10–20% tip is customary to show your appreciation for their hard work.

The charter boat covers your fishing license, so all you have to do is show up ready for a good time! Have in mind that you may release some fish due to regulations. Simply ask and your captain can tell you more.

You can’t go wrong when you bring sunglasses, sunscreen (non-spray), and a hat. Drinks are included, free of charge. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, so long as you avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles. There will be food and snacks aboard as well.

If you have any additional questions, feel free to message the Captain below.

Capt. Clinton runs trips out of Tewantin aboard a 36’ Catamaran. These waters are known for Red Emperor Snapper and Pearl Perch and he will show you how to catch them, whether you're spinning, popping, or trolling. With great knowledge of the area, he has a trick or two up his sleeve, and the only way to learn is to join him out on the water!
