The vessel usually departs from O'Connell Wharf located on Flinders Parade near the Yacht Club. Between 4-5pm for Swain Reefs Charters and 1-2pm for Coral Sea Trips.

The vessel usually returns to port between 5-6 am unless requested otherwise for early flights etc.

Departure times from the reef are determined by the area in which you are fishing, i.e. if you are fishing further north, you will depart the reef earlier in the afternoon to return to port in the necessary time.


For fishing charters, you should supply your own rods, reels, tackle, knife, dehooker etc.
If you would like any advice on types of fishing equipment most commonly used, don't hesitate to visit Pat's Tackle World for further details or ring Pat at 07 4972 3692

A small esky comes in handy in the dinghy to carry any refreshments with you & keep them cool. Most importantly a good hat, sunscreen, spray jacket, and sunproof clothing (long sleeve shirts / pants) are recommended.
