Shared Fishing Charters

Half-Day Charters Available

This popular charter fishing option can only be booked on the vessel The Pirate.

Half-day shared fishing charters are a traditional method of bottom reef fishing using Shimano Taipan 15-24kg rods and Shimano Saragosa 14000 reels. This tackle is combined with fresh bait to target tasty table fish like small/large mouth nannygai, coral trout, red/grassy emperors, a variety of snapper/sweetlip and many more.

Four-hour shared fishing charters are an ideal fishing experience duration especially for those who are new to fishing.

Travelling distances may vary due to the weather conditions, but generally, it is 15 mins to 45 mins journey to the fishing grounds.

All shared charters fish in and around the many picturesque Whitsunday Islands.

Private Fishing Charters

This charter option is a whole boat private booking. Private charters are ideal for keen anglers wanting to target a specific type of fish species or for a small group of friends/family wanting a more exclusive fishing experience together. These charters are more covid friendly and tailored to suit the client’s fishing needs.

All-inclusive Fishing Charters

All Hamilton Island fishing charters include bait and high-quality tackle. Our passionate, experienced staff professionally crews them. BYO your favourite alcohol, please note Brilliant Company only does private charters (whole boat bookings), and The Pirate is available for shared charters and private full/half-day charters options. Furthermore, inquire how the Topnotch Game Fishing team can create your most extraordinary Hamilton Island fishing experience.
