About Top Gun Charters

Since 1989, Top Gun Charters has been providing live-aboard fishing charters along the northern coastline of Western Australia, and day charters of out Perth. Not only have we chalked up an immeasurable amount of experience during this time, but we’ve also worked out how to deliver the most unforgettable fishing getaway, or day charter, WA has to offer.

Top Gun Charters is proudly West Australian and we have built our reputation as the masters of fishing boat charters in WA. The majority of our clients are return customers – a testament to how dedicated we are at what we do.

More than fishing charters

Whether you love fishing, snorkelling, or are just keen for a drink on the water, Top Gun Charters truly offers something for everyone.

Based in Fremantle during the summer months, we offer day charters on the stunning Swan River and waters around Rottnest Island and Carnac Island. From birthdays, to corporate functions, engagement parties, hen’s and buck’s parties, a venue like Top Gun II will make your event unforgettable.

The rest of the year we are fishing in some of the best spot available in Australia, including the Abrolhos Islands, Cape Cuvier and Carnarvon Islands, the Montebello Islands, and the Mackerel Islands.

Professionalism and passion

At Top Gun Charters, our professionalism is second to none. We’re committed to delivering an experience that you’ll not only talk about for years to come, but one that is in a safe and comfortable environment. To be able to achieve this, our crew are handpicked not just for their experience, but also for their passion for the industry.

We pride ourselves on the fact that fishing isn’t just a business, it’s our passion.

About me – Andy de Petra

Hi, my name’s Andy de Petra, and I’m the owner of Top Gun Charters. I bought the business back in 2008 from the amazing husband and wife team – the Kirkwoods, after nearly 20 years in the WA Police Force. I was craving a sea change, and I definitely got it!

My Dad used to fish with his friends on the original Top Gun. When I got older I followed in his footsteps and booked a fishing trip holiday every year with a group of friends. I loved it, and never dreamed I’d be lucky enough to one day be the owner of Top Gun Charters.

I have a lifelong love for the ocean, boats and fishing. I feel my most relaxed on the water and I love the unpredictability and excitement of that tug on my line knowing I’m about to land an awesome fish. I look forward to welcoming you aboard soon.

Giving back to the community

Top Gun Charters is a proud sponsor of Fishability – a non-for-profit organisation that assists children and adults requiring support to experience the joy of fishing. Twice every summer we donate a full day fishing charter, including food, drinks, rods, and bait, for people with disability and their carers and volunteers.

We’ve also invested in making Top Gun II wheelchair accessible all year round, including a ramp for embarking and disembarking, and an accessible bathroom. If you use a wheelchair, or require accessible facilities, please don’t hesitate to get in touch to book an event or charter. At Top Gun Charters, we believe the joy of fishing should be experienced by everyone.
