If you’re visiting Sydney, whether from abroad or cross country, you’ll likely have a number of plans already. For example: there are so many things to see and try, like the Sydney Opera House, Bondi Beach, and Darling Harbour (to name a few). But, for those of you who are looking to try something a little more adventurous, then we would recommend hiring a charter fishing company for a day!

But why? Fishing is boring right? Wrong! Charter fishing can offer some of the most exciting and memorable experiences that you can have in Sydney (or rather, off the coast of). So, if you’re the adventurous type, then this is almost certainly for you. Here’s why:

1 – Learn some incredible new skills

A deep-sea fishing tripis more than just about having fun! You can pick up some amazing tricks of the trade when out on a charter with some skilled and experienced fishermen to guide you. Even if you’re a complete newbie to the game, you’ll be certain to improve your craft and pick up some skills that you’ll be able to apply to your hobby back home.

2 – You don’t need to lug around any gear

Any fisherman will be able to tell you just how much gear you’ll need to pack with you for an average day out on the lake or jetty. Well, the best thing about a deep-sea fishing charter experience is that you won’t need to bring any gear at all! Your charter comes fully equipped with absolutely everything that you’ll need to catch some beautiful beasts while out on the water!

3 – It’s new territory for most people

How many people can say that they’ve been out in the open ocean off the coast of Sydney, fishing up Mahi Mahi, or Swordfish, or giant Mackerel? Not many! It’s a new experience that can be enjoyed with your closest friends and family members, enjoying a bonding exercise that you’ll remember for the rest of your life. We couldn’t recommend this trip enough!

4 – All the guidance you’ll need

The best thing about these experiences, is that you’ll have expert guidance when out on the water. Often, it’s a lack of experience or knowledge that would prevent people from being able to enjoy such an experience. It would be dangerous to venture out on your own with a rented boat and no knowledge of how or what you’re likely to catch. As such, an expert guided charter with some of the most experienced skippers in the world will make the trip all the more worth it.

5 – You can relax!

There’s a big difference between “boring” and “relaxing”, and there’s absolutely nothing boring about a chartered fishing trip off the cost of Australia. Sure, it’s not going to be a fish a minute, but that means that there’s plenty of time to enjoy the gentle movements of the ocean, the fresh sea breeze, and some excellent company.

If this is something that you are keen to experience yourself, then we would recommend seeking out an established company such as Blue Reef Fishing Charters! In any case, do your research and find a company which jumps out at you. You shouldn’t rush into the first company that you come across.
