Reel Affair Charters offers a personal service on fishing charters out of Merimbula, New South Wales. With a crew of two as well as the skipper, there is plenty of help on hand for everyone from novice to the most experienced anglers. And with a wide variety of fishing and boating options available, they assure you will have the best possible experience aboard their boat.

The Reel Affair is an attractive 38 ft Mariner boat with a flybridge for fantastic views of the surrounding ocean. The boat comes complete with all the creature comforts you will need for an enjoyable day on the water, including a bathroom, a shower, a kitchen with a refrigerator, and plenty of covered seating. On top of that, there are also all the necessary sporting and safety additions for a successful day fishing the offshore waters or the local reefs.

Depending on your experience, budget, and appetite, you can choose from a variety of fishing charters aboard the Reel Affair. You could bottom fish the reefs for species such as pink Snapper, Leatherjacket, and Morwong, as well as hooking predatory Sharks and tasty Kingfish. Otherwise, passionate anglers might enjoy some light tackle jigging or heavy tackle offshore trolling. Whatever you prefer, all the gear and helping hands you will need will be provided in the cost of the trip.

Whale watching charters are also available; take an unforgettable trip and catch the annual Humpback Whale migration between mid September and mid November. There’s nothing quite like seeing these gentle giants up close in their own habitat!

All keeper fish will be cleaned and packaged for you by the friendly crew on return to the dock.
