If you want to charter a boat in Melbourne, there are various companies offering charters, and it can be a relaxing way to spend a day or longer. Although many boat charters simply take you around Port Phillip Bay and out to sea to enjoy the scenery, others allow you to experience the area’s great fishing. Fishing charters vary, although you can expect to have knowledgeable staff on board who know the best fishing spots, as well as all the equipment you’ll need. That includes rods and reels, tackle and bait, and often the chance to cook your freshly caught fish on board before eating it. Most charter boats also serve drinks and have a proper toilet. Prices vary, based on the season, the size of boat, the length of your trip and the number in your party, but it’s a great way to see the area.
