Abrolhos Islands Fishing Charters
The stunning Abrolhos Islands lay approximately 40 nautical miles west of Geraldton, Western Australia. The word Abrolhos is thought to be derived from the Portuguese expression Abre os olhos, meaning “keep your eyes open”.
The reason being it’s made up of 122 islands broken into 3 main groups, this area is a haven for aquatic life and the ultimate playground to fulfil your fishing dreams.
Talking of spectacular catches, the Abrolhos boasts some of the best reef fishing action you are likely to encounter. Large coral formations and reef ledges are spread throughout the region and are host to some thumping bottom dwelling fish species. Dhufish, Baldchin Groper, Pink Snapper, Spangled Emperor, Coral Trout and Red Emperor are just some of the main species we encounter regularly.
With all styles of fishing, there is always that surprise catch that will etch in your memory, forever. Trying different techniques and strategies to get that prized catch can often lead to something spectacular. Why not try your luck at jigging with soft plastics or bring along some lighter gear?
Try a combination of bottom bouncing and jigging for all those deep dwellers and to get the adrenalin pumping, watch the action unfold as Yellowfin Tuna and Spanish Mackerel hit surface lures while trolling! Or for a change of pace you can drop a craypot or two.
This area is an Eco wonderland and is home to the Batavia wreck which struck a coral reef and sank in the Abrolhos Islands in June 1629. So, if the fishing seems hard work at the time, take a dip, have a snorkel or spearfish, explore the islands and its history or simply relax on board.
We will put you on the spots, the rest is up to you. 15 guests are our maximum; however, we find guests up to 12, works well.
