The 18Hr OVERNIGHT deep sea fishing charter.
Our 18-hour charters are a true overnight fishing trip, and a great way to experience a very different true Deep Sea Fishing adventure! Aside from the massive amount of time spent actually fishing, these charters are designed around a number of key elements.
- Making sure we get as close as we can to the best Moon cycle!
- Getting to the first fishing location to het the Sunset period.
- Getting to reefs known to work well for true late night fishing.
- Getting to another reef for true Sunrise fishing.
- And of course making the best use of the tide changes!
We recommend this length of trip to those highly experienced with Deep Sea Charter Fishing, or those wanting to get such experience. In general we travel up to 35nm offshore on this charter.
Overnight charters include a dinner, breakfast (Both commonly prepared on our BBQ aboard) as well as snacks, soups and nibbles.
There is sleeping accommodation for up to 6 people at once. (This charter is not designed for a lot of sleeping! 😉 ), so we recommend doing this trip with a friend or family member so that you can each work out who gets to have a nap when. (This is known as “hot-bunking”). Its also not uncommon for people to bring a sleeping bag or swag as they prefer to sleep as close to their rod as possible!
With just 12 passengers on a boat, designed to be comfortable with 23, you have a massive amount of room. All designed to provide a really special experience!
Please note- These charters are a winter option only, and available a max of 6 x per year. No Spanner Crabbing on these trips!

We depart from the “Coast Guard & Boat Ramp” Pontoon. (Pontoon is located between the 2 boat ramps).
For a GPS use 51 Parkyn Parade Mooloolaba Qld. These are the units across the road from the ramp.
Please DO NOT park your car in the Boat trailer areas here but rather find a park along Parkyn Parade where parking is free and unlimited in time. Cars parked incorrectly in the Boat ramp car park are likely to be towed.
Once parked please wait at the top of the ramp to the pontoon until instructed by the crew that it is safe to come down the ramp and board the vessel.
Ensure you have enough time to find a car park if needed.
Please DO NOT bring empty eskies aboard. The crew will bag and ice your fish and your crabs (separately) for you so that you can take them to your can and easily place them in a waiting esky there.
Please do not wait on the pontoon itself as the crew will be mooring the vessel on its arrival and we safety is paramount for all.
