Merimbula Marina Fishing Charters

Spend an unforgettable day with family and friends aboard “Merimbula Marina Fishing Charters”! You’ll explore the productive Tasman Sea with a fun and welcoming crew. This charter is run by a family of passionate anglers and whale watchers who look forward to sharing the experience with you!

Skippers Simon and Glenn operate a large, 60’ Catamaran that can accommodate up to 20 guests. She gets you out to the local reefs quickly and in comfort! You’ll enjoy the stable deck, which makes for a great fishing platform for both novice and experienced anglers.

On top of that, she features separate female and male toilets, a fighting chair, a flybridge, a kitchen with a fridge, as well as a multimedia system for your entertainment. To improve the quality of your fishing adventure, you can use outriggers when trolling, store live bait in the live well, and use the icebox to keep your catch fresh.

Merimbula offers great fishing for a variety of reef species such as Snapper, Bream, Flathead, Morwong, Trevally, Nannygai, Leatherjacket, Wrasse and Grouper. This huge variety of fish is what makes the half-day reef fishing trip one of the most popular!

Admirers of offshore fishing, you’re covered to and will go after the likes of Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Bluefin and Yellowfin Tuna, Kingfish, and large Pink Snapper on full day trips. These are ideal for between 6–8 anglers.

Skippers Simon and Glenn provide all the rods, reels, and tackle you need for a successful day. They also bring along drinks and snacks to keep you going and are happy to clean and bag your catch at the end of the day. The first mate will help you reel in your fish, and the whole crew will make sure you are having an amazing time onboard!

Explore the beautiful waters in New South Wales with a talented crew aboard Merimbula Marina Fishing Charters!
