Where is it?

We fish out of Portland which is one of Victoria’s oldest towns located 5 hours drive West from Melbourne. The map on this page gives you a rough idea of the location.

We fish from here because it’s one of the closest entry points to the sea from the continental shelf. The Bluefin are a deep water fish and tend to stick near where this shelf runs along the southern coast of Australia.

How Much Does Tuna Fishing Cost?

All our tuna fishing charters run over a full day. For a full price guide visit this page.

What to expect?

We do need to travel quite far off-shore in order to get to the area where the tuna are. Additionally, when catching tuna you need to troll for them, meaning the boat is constantly on the move throughout the trip. Luckily there are two experienced skippers on board! Heavy duty, high quality tuna fishing gear is provided.

What do i bring on the charter?

Everything for your day of tuna fishing is included except the following items

  • Transport to and from Portland
  • Wet weather gear including warm clothes
  • Food
  • Drinks
  • Sunscreen and sunglasses to protect from the sun
  • Victorian fishing license
  • Esky to put your fish in at the end of the day
About the boat.

The boat is a custom built Powercraft from Tasmania especially built for fishing charters.

  • Easily fits 10 people but 6 person maximum capacity for tuna fishing (weight of the fish you catch limits the load)
  • Qualified to travel up to 30 nautical miles offshore in search of the best tuna – Master 5 and Med 3 onboard
  • Twin 150HP ETEC engines
  • All necessary safety equipment – Radio 27meg VHF, HF, flares, life jackets, first aid etc.
  • Lowrance GPS sounder to find the fish quickly and easily
  • Fully decked out with a range of light and heavy rods and tackle
  • Esky and live bait tank
After you catch your tuna.

After you catch the big one, your fish is immediately bled and then filleted back at the cleaning table by our staff. Then its yours to store in your own personal esky or take home for the missus to cook up.

Remember it’s illegal to sell your Bluefin Tuna without a licence. Also bag limits of 2 tuna per person apply because we need to protect this fish for generations.

Getting There and Meeting Points.

All tuna fishing charters leave from the Portland boat ramp near the centre of town. Below is a map of where we meet before heading out in the early morning:

Booking Terms & Conditions
  • All our fishing charters require you to obtain a Victorian Fishing License. More information is provided here:


  • We strictly do not offer refunds based on a change of mind or situations out of our control such as bad weather conditions. Instead, we provide alternative dates for your charter or a voucher for a charter that can be redeemed at a suitable date in the future. Please understand that this isn’t a hobby for me this is a business. Big businesses don’t accept it so why should small businesses? We look forward to having you onboard.


  • Please note that group bookings will take priority over individual bookings due to boat capacity.
