Fishing in Westernport Bay is an exhilarating experience due to the stunning scenery and the wide variety of fish species living in the waters. T-Cat Charters offers various day packages to suit everyone. Whether you’re a first-timer, or a seasoned fisherman, Dave and his team can offer you a great day out for all aboard Wontama or T-Cat.
During October/November/December Dave offers half night (5 hour) trips.
The Wontama’s facilities are perfect for night fishing with a clean toilet, stove, kettle, good lighting, windbreak curtains and an engine-box lid perfectly placed if you need a mid-fishing nap! Dave will return you back to the port by 8am the next morning.
Disclaimer: No alcohol is permitted on night fishing boats.
As the world becomes more environmentally conscious, there’s nothing better than showing your children the wonders of the sea from the safety and comfort of the T-Cat Charter boats. Daves’s ‘kids fishing’ experience includes fishing tuition (including environmental information), a half hour boat ride, 1 hour fishing then a half hour return home. Dave’s passion for the sea is a great inspiration to younger generations, who will learn how to fish safely and wisely. Kid’s fishing is a fun day out for all.
Dave’s passion for wildlife means you will get up close and personal with a variety of amazing animals that dwell in, or pass seasonally through the waters of Westernport Bay. These trips can either circumnavigate Phillip Island, or be arranged and tailored to your requirements. In general, dolphin watching season takes place from October through to April each year. Daves’s local knowledge is unsurpassed, and he loves to share what he knows with all those who come to see the beautiful animals which inhabit the seas of Westernport.
Upon special request, T-Cat provides off-shore charters for marine ecology groups, professional dive companies, and marine parks and facilitates all aspects of commercial diving and hydrographic surveying. Dave will facilitate your trip and navigate the open seas to suit your groups’ needs. A deckhand is also available upon request. The T-Cat can be transported anywhere upon request meaning it can be brought to a location of your choice before the day begins. With years of experience in the open sea, Dave’s service is ideal for all commercial survey and dive trips.
When loved ones pass, many families choose to scatter their ashes in the sea. T-Cat Charters can facilitate this with sensitivity and care, and take your private charter to a specific location where you can pay your last respects. This service can include an organised memorial wreath, and provides a comfortable and quiet experience suited to the needs of your group.
