Port Macquarie Cruise Adventures





Port Macquarie Cruise Adventures has conducted fishing charters for 11 years. Our Charter Boat Licence (13188) is for 22 people fishing in the river and 14 at sea.

Discovery is a 12 metre long, 4 metre wide fast catamaran.


Catches are usually plentiful and include a variety of coastal reef fish mainly Snapper, Pearl Perch, Pigfish, Morwong and Flathead.


Coastal reef fishing costs

$110 per person for 4 hours,

$130 per person for 5 hours,

$150 per person for 6 hours.

These costs include all fishing gear*, bait and tackle.

* We use Penn Spinfisher 850 reels but have a variety of overheads or light rods to suit all ages and experience.

Discounts are available for groups and frequent fishers


Departure is at first light (before sunrise) each morning

subject to minimum numbers and weather.



Why are we different? Discovery is the only charter boat in Port Macquarie with a full walk-around fishing deck with 28 metres of hand rail space and rod holders every metre around the handrails . Other charter boats usually only have a back deck to fish from. On Discovery you can spread out and minimise tangles. Comfortable chairs are available for you to sit, fish and put your feet up..


If you are not experienced on the ocean we strongly advise you get seasick prevention.


River fishing goes on demand. $45 per person for 3 hours includes rod hire & bait.

This is the best option for large family groups with young children.
