About the Charter Operator

Black & Blue Marlin Charters
Exmouth, Western Australia, Australia
Member since December 2016
Started out as a deckhand in 1997 on family owned and operated charter and fishing boats out of Darwin, Northern Territory of Australia. Recently made the move to Exmouth, Western Australia to set up Black & Blue Marlin Charters with our new custom built 30 ft vessel. The Black & Blue team enjoys trolling lures or skip baits as well as pitch or switch baiting to our target species. We have a variety of pelagics off the West Australian coast and in the Gulf of Exmouth, targeting all species of Marlin (blue, black and striped) which are prevalent throughout the year. Sailfish are another target species and depending on the season can be located either off the west coast or a short run from the Exmouth Marina in to the gulf grounds.
