Whale watching!

Great trip. Thank you Steve and Anna. Loved the whales, the seals, the dolphins and finally, the pelicans! What a great way to start the day!

We have been out every year for many years with Scott and had a great all-round experience. We went out with the new skipper and were not very impressed as he yelled at my child when she was snagged, didn't seem that bothered that we didn't catch many fish, only had dried out squid for bait so if that was...

After 3 hours we had caught 42 fish (my daughter kept track). Right at the end we landed a nice gummy shark. All the kids loved it. Scott was really... More

Very slow boat, skipper not that involved, felt like we were along for the ride rather than on a charter. We were out to view whales, saw none, not their fault, but contributed to feeling used and unsatisfied. Have been told their fishing charters are better.

I went fishing yesterday with Scott Peverill and I really enjoyed it. I was a bit sea sick and I forgot a Jumper but that didn't really matter he was a great bloke and lended me his. I only caught one flathead but it didn't matter, I had great company there.

Fishpen charters is a very friendly and well run fishing charter package. The family atmosphere of the whole trip was so enjoyable. Everything was supplied, and advice was helpful and productive. Everyone on board enjoyed the outing, and everyone caught fish, some more than others to be sure, but all went home very pleased with their catch and with the... More

I became sea sick and is was no problem to be brought back before the boat went out again. Bill does not go out... More
