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.

Booked a 3 hour private charter for our family group including 5 young children.

Everyone had a blast. We were lucky enough to have perfect weather and lots of fish - mostly flathead.

Scott was super helpful given most of us had no clue about fishing and gave us all the assistance we needed!

A really wonderful morning out on the water.

We booked a 4 hour fishing charter for 2 adults, and 2 teenage boys.

Scott, the owner and captain of the boat was a great host. He was busy baiting hooks and untangling lines while taking us to various spots to try for different types of fish.

His approach is laid back, and is perfect for families, especially those who don't fish too often.

My boys are already talking about booking again next year!

Scott is a professional skipper who ensures his trips are well planned & his clients are taken care of. Husband & son went on a 3 hour trip where Scott shared his fishing tips & all gear was set up ready to go making the most of everyone's time. Safety was also ensured throughout the trip. Enjoyed it so much they did another 5 hour trip a week later & caught numerous different fish, some to keep, some put back. I highly recommend Fishpen Charters, we were really happy with the ease of booking, Scott's friendly manner & the way the trips are run. Have also hired SUP boards & kayaks from Fishpen over the last few years as they are well priced, easy to arrange & always met with friendly relaxed service. Great little local business that deserves the support they receive.

Mu son went on this fishing charter. He has medium experience of fishing.
The Booking experience was unorganized just like there other part of the business.
There is only one crew on board therefore if there are tangles or people catching fish you just have to sit and wait until we me person gets around to all of the guests.
At one stage my son caught a fish and was just waiting until one of the other guests onboard had to put everything down and help.
I would suggest many of the other more professionally run charters in Merimbula or Eden rather than this one.

Scott was fantastic. My three daughters loved it and proved this experience is for anyone. We all caught something and the highlight was my 12 year old catching one of the 3 Gummy Sharks we caught on the day. We can’t wait to do it again.

My husband and his mates used this service for fishing and my friend her daughter and I for whale watching.

Whale watching was amazing (as you can see by my photo). Our captain was awesome and we were lucky enough to only have three of us on the boat so we could jump from side to side with no issues. We saw three whales...nothing short of amazing!
