Welcome To Adventure fishing

Experience The Abrolhos Islands

The craggy, often windswept islands of the Abrolhos belie the dazzling kaleidoscope of life below the ocean’s surface.  While this archipelago of 122 islands, 45 nautical miles from Kalbarri, may appear barren on the surface, its unique mix of tropical and temperate waters results in an incredible number of different fish and coral species. In fact many say the fantasia of fish and corals rivals that of the Great Barrier Reef – without the hundreds of tourists and charter boats.

The Islands are also renowned as one of the country’s most important sea bird nesting habitats. And the fishing, well that has to be experienced to be believed.

Scuba Diving/Snorkelling

Descend below the ocean surface at the Abrolhos Islands and enter another world – a seemingly magical land of towering coral castles, dazzlingly bright reef fish and charming marine mammals like dolphins and seals.

Many of the Abrolhos’ coral gardens grow close to the surface, meaning you can experience its wonders with no more than a snorkel and mask. Also be sure to visit the dive sites known for their huge, tame Sampson fish – a close up encounter you’ll remember for life.

Fishing off the Kalbarri ExplorerFishing

The Abrolhos Islands are renowned as one of the state’s premier fishing destinations. Far away from the often overfished grounds of the coast, this more remote fishing wonderland is sure to impress. The Islands are particularly well renowned for baldchin groper. But you’ll also find dhufish, snapper, emperor and coral trout in numbers sure to astound. You may also like to troll for Spanish mackerel, yellowfin tuna or dolphin fish for an exhilarating fishing experience.

Kalbarri Explorer Ocean Charters will take you there...
Fully equipped with wide lower fishing/cruising deck and upper fly bridge, the Kalbarri Explorer provides passengers with high above waterline vantage points. An experienced skipper (with decades of experience as a professional fisherman in this region) controls the vessel with help from a friendly and efficient crew, all of whom offer exceptional knowledge of local waters and conditions.

Nature Watching

The pristine marine environment of the Abrolhos Islands offers a myriad of opportunities to experience the wonders of nature. Watch skies fill with the sound and colour of nesting seabirds. The islands are particularly well renowned for their habitats of terns, shearwaters, albatross, osprey, white breasted sea eagle, oyster catchers and noddy species.

You’ll also highly likely to see seals on your Islands trip – either lazing sprawled out on the beach or ducking and diving through the turquoise waters. Huge pods of dolphins are also a common sight, as are humpback whales during their annual migration from June to November.
