Boat Charters Warrnambool

Warrnambool's newest Fishing Charter and Pleasure Cruises


Let us introduce you to Reel Addiction

She is a Topaz sportfisher 37 built by fishermen for fishermen, a long time legend in U.S fishing circles.
This particular boat is a custom built G.R.P sportfisher powered by twin 10.5 litre caterpillar diesel engines giving a top speed of almost 30 knots.  Coupled to an impressive array of electronics including Furuno-simrad- lowrance and Garmin echo sounders with 1x1600w 2x1kw transducer and 1x3kw transducers, state of the art 7", 9" and 12" chartplotters 4G radar VHF, and H.F. She has a long history of raising fish in the U.S. with her deep throaty note... and WOW we have seen this trend continuing.
Radios as well as sat phone, charging points for mobile phones etc. all contribute to a great day on the water. She is the ultimate set up for the serious off shore fisherman. And if bashing your way to the continental shelf in a trailer boat doesn't appeal then this is the boat for you.
Try our cappuccino machine, Bose stereo, air conditioning, flat screen TV and DVD player, microwave, toilet, shower and lounge, or perhaps a snooze in the forward stateroom!
But if fishing is not your thing, a luxury cruise along the South West Coast or to Port Fairy for lunch with family or friends is a great way to spend the day.

Your Crew

Your crew is qualified, experienced and professional in their approach to your safety and comfort. Each of them is passionate about fishing and keen to give you your best ever fishing experience.

Captain Wayne Dalton

Wayne holds a Master Class 5 in Coastal Maritime Operations and a Marine Engine Driving Grade 3.

With over 40 years experience on the water (some of it in commercial fishing) Wayne ensures his passengers safety comes first.

His love of fishing has lead him all around Australia from Burmagui to Weipa from Darwin to Esperance but his passion is fishing in the Victorian and South Australian coast and has “chucked in his day job” to spend every day doing what he loves; fishing and boating.

Captain Lewis Holland

Skipper Lewis Holland

Lewis holds the same Master Class 5 and Marine Engine Driving Class 3 qualification as Wayne, without the same experience as Wayne (it’s not for the want of trying).

Lewis has grown up locally in Warrnambool (6th generation) and has a strong local knowledge and sea going family tradition. He has won, from a young age, many fishing comps and is eager to make sure you have as much excitement as possible looking for target fish.

Morgan Flook

Deckhand Morgan Flook

Another local lad of 5 generations and also with a long sea going family tradition in commercial fishing. Morgan is currently undertaking his Coxswain Ticket.

Morgan was born to fish and at every opportunity does so; with a longstanding and friendly rivalry with Lewis about who catches the most, best and biggest.

Any day on the water is a great day and Morgan will make sure you enjoy your time as he does.

Passenger Safety

Passenger safety and comfort is our priority.

We only operate when we believe you will enjoy the experience.

We will give you plenty of notice if we have to cancel your booking.

Supplied Equipment

We supply our guests with high quality rods, reels and lures.

We use only the best (in our opinion) fishing gear available. Your captain's favorite is the Fin Nor range of reels from 30w to 80w, Bent Butt offshore trolling rods and Miya Epoch electronics for finding the deep fish.

We want you to hook a monster.

Reeling in your best catch ever in the comfort of a Lee's fighting chair adds magic to your fishing experience.

With three huge outriggers, Reel Addiction is equipped to troll with 11 plus lines at the same time, creating maximum hook up rates, and creating maximum excitement.

All you need to bring along is your fishing license, wet weather gear, food and drinks

And remember to take your sea sickness tablets at least 20mins before departure.
