Make some memories in Sydney and go fishing with Sydney Sea Charters.

Local species include Pink Snapper, Bonito, Black Marlin, Striped Marlin, Skipjack Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and more if you come at the right time of year. On these trips, it’s common to troll and bottom fish using light or heavy tackle.

Sydney Sea Charters is a child-friendly charter service, so the whole family can come and unplug for the day! Be sure to ask if child-sized life vests are available, otherwise, you should bring your own. Snacks are also a good idea so that nobody gets cranky on an empty belly!

Your day begins aboard a 43’ Stebercraft offshore sport fishing vessel with room for 8 passengers. It has outriggers and all the essentials no fishing machine can run without. There’s a toilet on board for your convenience. Your captain will provide rods and reels.

The charter boat covers your fishing license, so all you have to do is look forward to your trip! Have in mind that you may release some fish due to regulations. Simply ask and your captain can tell you more. Don’t forget to bring sunglasses, a hat, sunblock (non-spray), and bottled water. If you’d like to bring other drinks, just ask. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, but try to avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

Capt. Joe runs trips out of Sydney aboard a 43’ Stebercraft. These waters are known for Pink Snapper and different pelagics, and he will show you how to catch them, whether you're trolling or bottom fishing. With extensive 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!
