Game Fishing Broome for Sailfish
Our Broome game boat is owned and operated by fishing enthusiasts who are committed to providing an all round experience that results in full customer satisfaction. Whilst specialising in Billfish, they are happy to customise your trip to suit your needs. Fishing is done in some of the most spectacular destinations in Western Australia; the region is also rich in marine diversity. While fishing is foremost, a comfortable boat, friendly and knowledgeable crew and good food are all part of a great day on the water. Every one is welcome as the skipper gets just as much enjoyment from fishing with experienced anglers as he does guiding a novice through their first Billfish.
Broome is situated in Western Australia’s North West, some 2200km from Perth and is the gateway to the spectacular Kimberley region.

What You Can Catch
Being one of Australia’s leading light tackle Game Fishing destinations, anglers are blessed with phenomenal numbers of Sailfish. All fishing for these high-speed predators is done through switch baiting on 10kg tackle. This provides the advantage of multiple hook ups as well as a much higher hook up to landing ratio when compared to other methods.
Broome’s rich tropical waters are not only home to abundant Sailfish numbers, but are also frequented by Black Marlin, Spanish Mackerel, Longtail Tuna, Cobia, GT’s and Queenfish to name a few. As well as fish species, on a daily basis you may also encounter migrating Hump Back Whales, Dolphins, Sea Turtles, Sea Snakes and a variety of bird life.
When You Can Catch
Our Game Fishing Vessel operate full day charters from May to October. Peak Sailfish months are June through to October.
Broome is a very tidal destination, with tides reaching 10 metres at times. As a result, advanced bookings are essential as you will only fish the neap tides to ensure better fishing for you.
Domestic Airlines of Qantas and Virgin Australia fly to Broome daily from most capital cities (either directly or via connections). Airnorth and Skywest also operate regionally into Broome.
