Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Driving in early in the morning and coming in over the last hill to western River Cove the view was stunning. We were met by lovely Alex who escorted us in our cars through their very scenic property to the marina . We then boarded the boat and met Gavin the friendly boat owner. The boat is huge, very well equipped, lots of shade , toilet, great table with seating and plenty of room to fish.
The fishing rods and equipment was of a high standard and well maintained. Lots of bait.
Alex was always running around helping people baiting up,getting their fish in and even taking them off for you. We caught heaps of fish. Large Nannygai, whiting, trevally, and lots more. Everyone had a full esky. . We have been on quite a few fishing charters but this has been by far the best charter ever! We had so much fun. Both Gavin and Alex are very informative on all aspects of fishing, marine life and land knowledge. The whole operation is very professionally run with lots of fun. I can’t wait to come back and do it again. Thank you.
Kind regards Sue and Norm Scott

A big thank you to Gavin and Alex for an awesome day on the water for our school excursion. As part of our school excusrion we booked a full day charter spilt over an am and pm trip.
Gavin and Alex were fantastic, our students had no experience with offshore fishing and they tutored the kids on correct techniques. All the students caught fish on the day and had a fantastic time.
The weather wasn't as cooperative as we all would like. But Gavin had a plan on how to accommodate the kids and fished a little closer to land for the pm session.
The whole experience was simple to plan and the operation is highly professional, friendly and organised.
I can highly recommend this business if you are looking for a fishing experience for kids of any age.

I've fished on charters from Fiji to Margaret River and this boat is a no compromise purpose built fishing boat for groups. You cannot go wrong.

We are ever appreciative of our great KI fishing experience.

It all started with the amazing view as you come over the hill. Gavin and Alex look after you and have some great chats and tips. Great boat and equipment to use.
