Inshore Fishing Private Charter

Time to reel in the good vibes aboard Quick Cat II! Grab your fishing buddies or round up the family and friends for an epic fishing trip on your own Private Fishing Charter!


Step aboard and discover the magic of our Inshore Fishing Trip. Relax as you drift along the local island reefs, casting a line and hoping to catch that elusive first fish. Whether you're a seasoned angler or a first-timer, our expert crew is on hand to provide guidance and teach you new skills. And with our catch and release/sustainable fishing philosophy, you can enjoy your day on the water without harming the environment.

Fishing the inshore local island reefs, gutters and rock ledges, this charter is aimed towards those looking to get out for the morning, relax on the water, explore new areas, drift along and hopefully catch a fish or two!

We don’t aim to focus on keeping everything caught as we like to promote catch and release/sustainable fishing, unless of course it really is a keeper!

Our fishing areas range from only 1m deep up to 15m deep depending on weather and tide conditions.

We see a variety of different reef & pelagic species caught on board Quick Cat II including Monocle Bream, Grass Emperor, Tusk Fish, Cod, Bream, Queen Fish, Mackerel, Shark, Black All, Moses Perch and the occasional Coral Trout.

The team at Hervey Bay Whale Watch have been doing this for a long time and know the bay and the conditions well.

We will never take Quick Cat II out if conditions are dangerous and we will advise you of the expected conditions before departure.

Different people have different expectations, some people aren’t bothered by rough days, but we want you to enjoy your experience with us so if it’s a rough day we are happy to re book your cruise for a calmer day.

If the day is too rough to be enjoyable, we will advise you as soon as possible that the cruise will be cancelled. You have the choice of a refund or to book for another cruise.

Occasionally there can be unexpected swell even on the calmest of days, The captain will assess the conditions and if found to be unsafe or unworkable the tour will unfortunately be cancelled, we understand this last minute cancellation can be disruptive to your day but some times swell and it's height/direction can be unpredictable.
