overview

Blend fishing and relaxation into one, for the ultimate 50/50 getaway.

If you’re after a holiday and a fishing trip in one, then our Stay & Fish package is for you. Not just about the fishing, we also show you around Noosa by water, give you free reign of the water sports equipment and plenty of time to enjoy the pool and bar back at the lodge. We also love to showcase some amazing local produce from the land and sea all prepared by our own private chef. You’ll leave feeling relaxed and reset with a few new fishing stories to tell.

With a choice between game, sport and reef fishing trips based on the season, our Fish & Stay package gets you on the water for half day sessions each day, allowing you to kick back for the other half. Our itineraries are designed to get you fishing all the optimal bite times at a multitude of different locations off the Sunshine Coast. 

Our 30′ Kevlacat, Good Company, was custom-built to fish this area and has all of the luxuries necessary to fish it effectively and comfortably. Yet, she is not only a luxury fishing vessel. She is also equipped for magnificent sunset cruises, dolphin and whale watching expeditions, beach outings and transportation to Hastings Street for a spot of shopping.

Our Fish & Stay package is available for private and shared stays.

For private bookings, we can completely tailor the trip itinerary to your preferences in terms of target species, techniques, destinations, activities, down time and cuisine.

Accommodating for up to 6 guests, our private stays are perfect for those family fishing vacations, a romantic weekend away, trips with friends or corporate stays.

Shared bookings are set on our prime dates around the moon to target specific species that frequent our waters at different times of the year. We offer stays for reef and inshore sport fishing. Itineraries are created to fish the bites times in half day sessions, allowing time for you to relax and enjoy the sights and natural wonders that we have here in Noosa.

Our shared stays are available for single anglers, couples, friends or small groups and we have a maximum capacity of 4 guests for these dates.
