Terms and conditions


To make a booking or enquiry, just give us a call or contact us online. Once you have secured a date, a $250.00 deposit is required within 7 days. We will email the account details to you.

While we are happy to have children along on sightseeing trips, our fishing trips do not cater for children, unless they have a considerable amount of boat fishing experience. If you wish to bring children, you will be expected to supervise and keep a safe watch on them at all times. The skipper’s priorities are safe operation of the boat and maximising the fishing opportunities for all on board. The skipper is unable to provide one on one supervision of children and their safe use of equipment.

Furthermore, the skipper reserves the right to withdraw equipment hired to children who are not showing due care and safety.

Life jackets

We carry a wide range of life jacket up to XXL. We will ask for approximate sizes before your trip to make sure we can accommodate everyone safely. Life jackets are compulsory for bar crossings.

Fishing for sport

Fishmeister considers fishing to be a sport. We do not use long lines or other catch devices. While it is extremely unlikely, we cannot guarantee that you will return home with fish.

Weather and safety

Safety is paramount to Fishmeister, particularly when a bar crossing is involved.

If Fishmeister cancels any trip due to unsafe weather conditions or other circumstances beyond our control, we will liaise with you to arrange another suitable date.

If a trip is cut short due to unexpected weather conditions, we may refund a portion of the trip, depending on the circumstances involved.

If you cancel

If you cancel more than 3 weeks before your scheduled charter, we will refund your deposit in full.

Cancellation between 1 and 3 weeks before your scheduled charter will result in a refund of your deposit less $50 administration fee.

No refund will be given if you cancel with less than 7 days notice.
