Yamba Fishing and Charters

Yamba Fishing and Charters would like to share their passion with you. You can participate and experience a quality Deep Sea Adventure!

With over 30+ years in the fishing charter industry Julie and Glynn have opened their business, Yamba Fishing and Charters. They excitedly relocated from Barwon Heads Victoria 15 years ago with their family to Yamba. While Glynn is your enthusiastic skipper onboard the vessel, Julie is behind the scenes running the business. If you’ve every talked to someone on the phone, sent a message or made an enquiry you’ve probably talked to Julie.

Yamba’s Clarence Valley has a beautiful coastline and Julie and Glynn would love to show it to you in their 3100 NoosaCat. Glynn, your skipper will take you on an unforgettable journey deep sea fishing, whale watching or sightseeing.

We also offer customised group trips for women, please contact us for a more personalised service.

Onboard you will be given a safety briefing and instructions of procedures for the day. The trip includes departure from the agreed location at approximately 6:00am motoring out to the some of the most exclusive fishing hotspots on the North Coast and returning approximately 1:30pm. The time for departure and return can change depending on individual or private bookings.

Provided for you is all fishing gear, fishing licenses, bait, and bottled water, safety equipment so you can sit back and relax. Glynn’s bad jokes come at no extra cost. When you return all fish caught will be cleaned by Glynn before you depart home, bonus.

Q Where are your pickup points?

We have a range of pickup and drop off points in Yamba and Iluka for both group and individual bookings. To find your closest option call, email, message or check out our Pickup Points page on Yamba Fishing and Charters website.

Q What are some of the Charter Types

Offshore Reef and Bottom Fishing - Morning Trip (7 Hours) Available 7 days a week, all seasons - this is the most popular trip, suitable for experienced anglers as well as first timers, social and corporate groups, birthdays, etc. People relax, do some fishing and usually catch a feed of fine table fish.

We usually fish 5 to 10 km offshore, over a selection of the productive reefs and fish feeding grounds within easy reach of Yamba. Depending on conditions, up to 9 people can fish at the same time. In most social groups this works out well, because several people are happy to relax, socialise, take photos and take turns fishing. If you are all die-hard fishos, however, we suggest limiting your numbers.​

Includes the boat and crew, top quality fishing tackle and bait, instruction and assistance when necessary.

Time: usually 5:45/6:00am to around 1:00 pm. For exclusive charters, pickup times can be negotiated to suit your party.

Offshore Reef and Bottom Fishing - Twilight Trip (1 PM till Sundown)

Similar to the morning trip listed above but in the evening. Includes the boat and crew, top quality fishing tackle and bait, instruction and assistance when necessary.
Time: 1:00pm to sunset. For exclusive charters, pickup times can be negotiated to suit your party.

Note: times for departure and arrival can be changed to suit groups

Q Do we need Licenses?

Yamba Fishing & Charters owns a block of Charter fishing licenses so you don’t need one.

Q How many people can I take on the charter?

We allow 9 maximum passengers.

Q Do we need to bring our own Rods?

The vessel is kitted out with sufficient gear and spares for all. You are welcome to use your own if you wish.

Q What happens if I feel sea sick? Do you provide sea-sick medicine?

We recommend you consult your doctor or pharmacist before your trip. We are not able to provide any medication as it is unlawful. If you think you might get seasick take pills as instructed on packet but take prior to boarding the vessel. Once we are at sea it is too late. Bring plenty of fluids, we will be in a salty environment. Have a good night’s sleep the night before your trip. As other customers will be on board, we will be unable to come back into the harbour early unless there is a medical emergency.

Q What happens if my charter is cancelled?

Should you charter be cancelled due to weather or unforeseen circumstances, in the case of bad weather cancellation we offer a full refund or 12 months to rebook.

Q What happens if there is bad weather on my booked date?

We use a range of forecasting tools to try and predict what the weather will be doing and to provide you the most notice in the case that we cancel a charter. Generally, we will make the decision by 8pm the day before a charter as to whether we will be going out. Since the weather in Yamba can be unpredictable we do prefer however for you to meet the boat in case the weather forecast has changed. If we have to cancel we will call, text or email you to let you know.

Q Is there a toilet on board?

The vessel has full toilet facilities on board.

Q What time do you pick up?

Catering to individuals, we try to stick to the schedule since we have Pick up Points in several locations around the area. Usually leaving by 6am but this time can differ. For Group Bookings we give you a choice of time and place. The boat is at your disposal.
