What is actually included in a fishing charter?

When you book a Fish n Crab Deep Sea Charter with Sunshine Coast Afloat, we supply all bait, quality fishing rods and reels, all tackle, Soft drink, Water, and full assistance from our expert crew.

As we are fully licensed all alcohol can be purchased on board from our bar facility.

For our fishing equipment we work closely with Okuma, Shimano and Penn in Particular. We also work with Finn Nor. These are the brands of reels we carry. Okuma is almost exclusively the only overhead reel we use on board. Extremely high end high quality reels with up to 50lb drag! For spin reels we use a range of Penn, Finn Nor and Shimano. All brands have high end reels with 25 to 30lbs drag designed purely for deep sea fishing conditions.

We carry Pilchards and squid – both frozen – as well as small lures (aka plastics) for use by all customers. When possible we will also  offer salted pilchards in addition to the frozen variety.

Please note that we no longer include food on our trips so we recommend you bring a lunch or snack pack with you, especially on longer trips.
