Fraser Island protects our fishing grounds from the prevailing wind and swells ensuring a comfortable fishing experience. Pickups are available from Hervey Bay through to Tin Can Bay. We are also licensed for whale watching for up to 30 people. You have the chance of spotting turtles, dugong and an array of birdlife on our trips. Bucks parties and cruise bookings welcome for up to 30 people.
The MV Princess II is a very large, stable 45ft vessel with creature comforts like standard household domestic toilet & washbasin; upper lounge area to kick back & relax; fully equipped galley with urn (not just a thermos) offering complimentary tea & coffee all trip; longest surviving owner/skipper local reef fishing charter operator in the Bay (must be doing something right?!); lower full walk around deck area for ease of playing that "big one". The day will include a delicious rib fillet BBQ lunch with fresh salads on a plate; complementary tea & coffee all trip; use of a Shimano reel & boat rod (for those without their own); hooks, swivels, sinkers & bait. Of course what you catch you keep as long as it's deemed legal &/or fit for human consumption.
