Recreational Fishing Licences

A recreational fishing licence is required when fishing in Victorian waters. Please ensure you have one (exemptions: under 18 years; 70 years or over; holders of Vic Seniors Cards, veterans affairs pensioner cards etc). We recommend that you purchase of a recreational fishing licence from 'Fisheries' at Victorian Recreational Fishing Licences or you can get one from us on board Plover.

The Plover has the best, most substantial protection from inclement weather, but it still can get cool in the mornings or late afternoon, so we suggest you wear suitable clothes, comfortable shoes and bring a spray jacket/rain coat if showers are forecast and a hat on the hotter days. Sunscreen on board!

Terms and conditions: please read before booking your trip

Remember, we don't care how far we go to catch fish. Port Phillip Bay's size and time are our only boundaries. We cannot guarantee that you will catch fish but we can guarantee that we will do our very best for you on your charter given the conditions on the day. It's more than just a fishing charter ... it's a marine experience. We depart from and return to the Mornington Pier, Mornington which is located on the Mornington Peninsula (just over an hours drive from Melbourne's CBD).
