The Captain Cook Caravan Park is the home of Ol' Kid Fishing Charters. Chris has employed his many years experience in the fishing industry to equip a safe, specialised vessel so that all the delights of fishing the waters around Bruny are available to his customers.
There can never be any guarantees as any fisherman knows but your chances of a good haul will never be better than with Chris and Ol' Kid at your service. Not only can you fish with Rod and Reel but you can also try net fishing and even set a craypot and keep the catch providing you have the necessary Government Licences. Better still all equipment with some minor exceptions is provided by Ol' Kid. See Licences and Regulations for more details.
As well as a great time fishing you will see some of the spectacular views and hidden sights of Bruny only available from the sea!
$100 per person for a 3 hour charter (minimum 2 people)
> Please note: This price will be increasing to $110 per person from 1st October 2013.
Full day charters are available.

We also have a special rate for families who incorporate accommodation and a fishing charter into their holiday.
Regulations & Licences
All Government Rules and regulations in respect to Bag Limits and minimum sizes will be strictly adhered to. This means that if you wish to see Cray pots set and pulled you can certainly do so - but if you wish to keep your "share" of the catch then you must hold a current Cray Pot Licence and have a Pot Buoy with your Licence number on it. Ol' Kid will supply the pot and rope but you must have your own "Buoy". Similarly if you wish to set a net you must be licenced and have a Buoy with your Licence number on it to be attached to an Ol' Kid net.
We have so many photos of unforgettable days onboard Ol' Kid. Click to see some great catches on Ol' Kid fishing trips.
Please note: Charters will not be in operation again until 1st October 2013 as the boat is in dry dock over winter. If you would like to make a booking for a fishing charter, click to complete our booking form.
