Tasmanian Wilderness & Fishing Adventures offer a totally unique experience. Explore and fish in and around Tasmania 's extremely isolated and rugged SouthWest coast and World Heritage Area onboard the 65 foot, fast boat, RUMOURS. We will get you to the best places quickly to maximise your fishing and wilderness experience time. East Coast Wilderness & Fishing Adventures also available.
Tasmanian Wilderness & Fishing Adventures is as much about the Wilderness Adventure as it is about the Charter Fishing and we can tailor the trip to concentrate on as much of either activity that suits your group during the 6 day Live Aboard Cruise.
No roads, no houses, nothing but pristine clean and green wilderness and some of the most jaw dropping spectacular coastal cliffs and bays in the world. Port Davey and Bathurst Harbour are untouched and combined are two and a half times bigger than Sydney Harbour. There are a multitude of rivers to explore with beautiful gorges and rare Huon Pine trees not to be seen anywhere else on the planet.
The fishing is also spectacular with the prize being the 6 star deep water Tasmanian Striped Trumpeter . There are a multitude of other species also to be caught in season including Pelagics such as the Southern Bluefin Tuna. Huge Southern Rock Lobster and Abalone are a certainty on the menu and RUMOURS has a special live viewing tank to keep your catch fresh for you to choose which ones we cook for dinner.
Whether its a visit to Maatsuyker Island lighthouse or monster waves off Pedra Branca rock in the Southern Ocean , or the flat calm peaceful reaches of Bathurst Harbour , Rumours can get you there and then back fast to the flat comfortable moorings of the multitude of ultra protected bays along the South, East and West Coast of Tasmania. Two deck mounted dinghies enable you to fully explore some of the most inaccessible reaches in the world.
Our 2 crew are fully qualified (masters 5) skippers and professional fishermen with a combined total of 44 years experience in and around these waters, we have the highest quality fishing gear utilising Australian made “Wilson” rods fitted with “Fin Nor” Reels, we provide everyone with a deep sea rig, a light tackle rig, a big game rig and a Cray Pot and the crew are there to assist and guide you, not to fish themselves.
We are offering an extreme adventure in one of the most inhospitable remote places in the World. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience first hand the rugged beauty of this famous yet virtually unexplored region in the comfort and safety of a vessel designed for these conditions. We operate in an Eco friendly way with the conservation of Tasmania's World Heritage Area as a priority.
