Off The Map Charters

Off The Map Charters have a simple ambition: to offer the best trips possible in the beautiful Tasman Sea, using the very best boat, tackle, and local knowledge to create an experience you will remember for the rest of your life.

Based out of Newport NSW, Off The Map Charters offers a selection of trips taking full advantage of the fantastic fishing the area offers. They offer anything from a half day inshore hitting local wrecks and reefs for tasty Snapper and Kingfish to take home for dinner, to full day blue water adventures battling big game monsters such as Bluefin and Yellowfin Tuna, Sailfish, Swordfish, Mahi Mahi, and basically every species of Marlin there is! They also offer amazing shared charters, including the chance to take part in world-famous Simrad Broken Bay Invitational - truly a life’s ambition for many an angler.

Quality is the cornerstone of Off The Map’s business, and nowhere is that more evident than on board their 38 ft Steber Sports Fisher. She is the pride and joy of the entire family and her spacious interior comes equipped with a deck-accessible toilet, galley, bed, flybridge, and multimedia system.

When it comes to the fishing things only get better and better, with state-of-the-art GPS, fishfinder, and sidescan sonar from Garmin and Furuno; top-of-the-line Penn International game reels and rods; and a wide variety of lures and quality live bait fresh from the tank. You won’t be disappointed with what you find on board!

Off The Map Charters is a family business run by Captain Graham Wilson, his wife Lauren, and their daughter Nadene. Captain Graham is a master mariner and yachtsman and seasoned angler who has fished his entire life, Nadene a world-class sailor and former NS14 national champion. They are all passionate about the water, and their love of fishing is plain to see. They will do all they can to make sure their clients go away with huge smiles and great memories, as well massive, delicious fish!
