Getting fully involved with the whole process allows you to enjoy your day on the water to the full, and the fully trained staff will make sure you have a better fishing experience.

You will be fishing aboard a spacious Devil Cat boat whose dual hulls give a stable and comfortable ride. At 36 ft, the boat has ample space for up to 12 passengers, making it the ideal platform both for live groups and for smaller parties who will enjoy having the boat to themselves. The boat is fully equipped with safety and navigation equipment, and it also has a private toilet on board.

Better Fishing target a variety of species and, fishing from Carrum, they allow you to experience the notorious Port Phillip Bay Snapper Fishing fun. Easily accessible from the bustling centre of Melbourne, they give you the chance to sample one of the highlights of fishing in Australia as you bait the hook, cast out, and hook your fish yourself for a truly rewarding experience. The knowledgeable team is always close to hand for help.
