Ningaloo Sportfishing Charters

Ningaloo Sportfishing Charters is your go-to charter service for high-end lure and fly fishing charters in Exmouth. Offering a uniquely-designed boat and expert instruction from an experienced guide, this is your chance to experience what it is like to fish in some of the most diverse and rewarding waters in the world. Fish with the best – you won’t regret it.

Picture yourself aboard a highly customized Sea Fox 220 Viper, the only boat of its class in Australia. An unrestricted 2C survey vessel, it can access waters that no other boat of its class can reach. On top of that, it is highly-tuned for lure and fly fishing, with two large casting platforms, a Minn Kota trolling motor, and the latest Raymarine electronics.

That is not to say that it isn’t built for comfort too – the boat comes complete with ample storage space and fold-down seating for your enjoyment while traveling between fishing spots. Tell your skipper your target species and he will do what’s needed to help you catch them.

The local fishery is unique – it has realms of opportunities for fly and light tackle anglers alike. Skim silently across the Exmouth gulf flats and Ningaloo for Bonefish, Permit, Golden Trevally, Queenfish, and more. Cast poppers and stick baits for GTs and other reef bruisers. Otherwise, head offshore to chase Marlin, Wahoo, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi and other pelagic species.

Join Ningaloo Sportfishing Charters and explore some of the most beautiful waters off the coast of Australia!
