Great character. Quietest day of the four time I have been out with Phippsy but a fun day none the less. A must do for those that want to learn the art of lure fishing! Terrific sandwiches too!

Phippsy's Noosa River fishing adventures is a "must do" when you come to the beautiful Noosa Region. What Andy does not know about fishing and the Noosa River is not worth knowing. He is a fantastic skipper, knowledgeable fisherman and a great story teller!!! Plus...More

We went fishing on the Noosa River with Phippsy's Smooth Water Charters. I think I caught the biggest fish in the river! A Giant Trevally according to Phippsy. We released it to fight another day... Awesome!

My now teenage boys grew up watching ‘Phippsy’ on TV, and were ‘stoked’ to be on board his charter!! Best idea ever for an educational and entertaining day out on the beautiful Noosa River. Phippsy is obviously passionate about both his fishing, and the environment,...More

From the moment you hop on the boat the fun starts. Phippsy is a real character who knows the local "scene" and knows how to entertain. He has so much knowledge about the Noosa River and how to fish it, you just can't miss out,...More
