Blue Water Adventure Charters

Blue Water Adventure Charters offer custom liveaboard trips to the Abrolhos Islands from March to October. Whether you want to go fishing, diving, snorkelling or a combination of the three, this is the package for you. From November to March, the charter is located out of Hilarys, where they run day trips to Rottnest for groups of up to 40 people.

Your vessel will be the impressive Glenalan, a 65’ Aurora ship that can sleep up to 12 but carry up to 40 persons. With a fully air-conditioned cabin, a Sea Keeper Gyro Stabilizer to keep you comfortable even in the most trying of conditions, and an ice machine on board, you will be comfortable throughout your trip.

The boat also has a variety of entertainment options, including a TV and DVD player as well as an iPod dock. As far as fishing goes, there are 2 five-meter (16’) Haines Signature Tenders powered by Suzuki engines. There are Furuno electronics on board to get you to the huge variety of fish species that call these waters home.

You will be traveling with guides who have extensive knowledge of the local area. They will provide interesting snippets throughout the trip about the dark past of the Batavia shipwreck and the diverse and beautiful local wildlife.

You will be able to take part in a range of fishing trips. Do some trolling for Spanish Mackerel, Cobi, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Marlin. You can also bottom bash, jig, and fish the shallow waters for Dhufish, Snapper, Coral Trout, Spangled Emperor and many more.

Explore the vast ocean off the coast of Western Australia with Blue Water Adventure Charters, and have a fishing trip you’ll never forget!
