For the ultimate charter fishing excursion, join WA fishing for a remarkable 5, 7 or 10 day getaway on our Abrolhos Islands Fishing Charters. This fishing charters Abrolhos Islands experience gives you an up-close look at one of Western Australia's best fishing locations.
The islands and the coral reefs that surround them create a unique underwater ecosystem. that is perfect for a huge variety of fish species.
The Abrolhos Islands are located about sixty km off the coast of Western Australia and consist of one-hundred and twenty-two separate islands which extend across roughly one-hundred kilometers from north to south. The islands lie in the middle of the southward-flowing Leeuwin Current making it a congregating spot for sea life from the temperate and tropical climates. This ensures that the variety of fish will be superb.
The Abrolhos Islands are also home to over ninety species of seabirds, including great numbers of white breasted sea eagles. The beautiful reef, which surrounds the islands, has been the cause of many shipwrecks over time. The most famous wreck in the area is the ill-fated Dutch merchant ship Batavia in 1629. As fate would have it, this wreck and the bloody mutinous aftermath led to the discovery of more Western Australia coastline as well as the first two documented Europeans to live in Australia. It is easy to see why the beautiful Abrolhos Islands and their storied history draw thousands of tourists every year.
How We Operate

- MONDAY: The trip to the southern-most region of the islands takes roughly three hours. During this time, we will serve a hearty scrambled egg breakfast with biscuits, jams, and hot beverages.
