Booking Information

We offer two kinds of fishing trips; Bay/Ocean fishing trips or Specialty sport fishing trips. Read on for more information.


5 to 6 hour BAY/OCEAN FISHING TRIPS departing Sorrento (or Queenscliff on request)

$150-250 per head* for local Port Phillip Bay fishing trips targeting what’s biting. Contact Joe to tailor your trip to you

Trips are for up to 8 people or 6 outside the Heads. We try to keep them to 6 people unless you are a bigger group wanting to go together. Fishing trips are made up of various clientele until the boat is full OR you can book the full boat to yourselves for your fishing trip (and take home the cleaned, filleted catch between you!). These boat trips run for approximately 5 hours, which is plenty of time for most anglers. Sometimes they run a bit longer dependent on time of year, so ask Joe about this. If you’re specifically wanting a longer fishing charter (up to 8 hours) then this can be organised with Joe upon booking and will cost an extra fee per head.

Single person: $150-250* – Contact Joe to discuss what you are wanting to target and tailor your trip to you

Full boat booked to yourself: Call Joe for seasonal quotation on 0488229752

Want to stay out longer? Extra time on the day for groups who want to stay out (if available) is at an additional charge of $150.00 per hour divided among clients.

*A minimum of four people are required to justify trip departure and we go to every effort to fill the boat. If for some reason we don’t get the minimum numbers clients have the option to pay the difference between them and ensure departure, to reschedule or to receive full refund.


Contact Joe on 0488229752 for a quote and more information on specialty fishing trips for the seasonal yellowtail kingfish or bluefin tuna.

Departure: Sorrento, Mornington Peninsula (see map below)

Your Mornington Peninsula boat charter departs from:

Sorrento Boat Ramp, St Aubins Way, Sorrento, Victoria 3943 (see map below).

Free parking is available in the first right hand  side carpark after turning into St Aubins Way. You will need to cut across the park/playground and go down the path and a wooden staircase to get to the boat ramp. If this is full, paid parking is available at Sorrento Pier carpark (beachside at Hotham Rd/the pier). You can see the boat ramp from this carpark. You now need a smart phone to pay here and it’s a bit of a headache as you’ll also need a credit card, so see if you can park at the boat ramp carpark first.

Be at the boat ramp 15 mins prior to departure time and allow additional time to park and walk down or over to the ramp.
