Laser Clay shooting: (optional extra, inner harbour only)

The Laser Clay Shooting is a really popular option, particularly as a team building exercise. Guests break into five groups, with each group allocated a shotgun (converted to laser). After a safety briefing and quick demo, the instructor fires plastic discs off the back of the boat, with guests taking turns to hit the moving targets before the discs land in the water. Hits are recorded on an electronic scoreboard, and there are sound effects for a bit of fun too. It’s a really popular activity with groups, as there’s no experience required and it can be as fun or competitive as each group wants to make it. 

Please note that these are actual shotguns and although rendered permanently inoperable, must be treated as if they were a real weapon. Pointing shotguns at passing boats, aircraft, other people or using them in an unsafe manner will result in both the activity and cruise being terminated. This activity is restricted to guests aged 18+.

Vessel features:

- twin deck catamaran with plenty of shelter from the elements 
- the only commercial fishing catamaran operating out of Sydney harbour
- the catamaran design means your trip will be a far more stable offshore experience compared to a conventional single-hull fishing boat
- capacity: we are licensed to carry a total of 23 guests (plus crew) offshore, however we carry double this in the harbour, so there is tons of room onboard for everyone
- we limit the numbers fishing to 18 at any given time
- Lowrance touch screen fish finder
- BBQ available (inner harbour only for health/safety reasons)
- fridge and esky available for food, but lots of room if you wanted to BYO esky 
- two bathrooms 
- friendly and experienced crew 
- wheelchair accessible


Beverages

Beverages available (after 10am) include a mix of both local and international brands, for example Corona, Crown Lager, Peroni, Super Dry, Extra Dry, Pure Blonde. Soft drinks and water are also available. Beverages can be purchased onboard via cash, prepaid drinks cards or a bar tab. Note that drinks service may be interrupted or slowed due to offshore conditions.


Postponement of trip:

Should the Bureau of Meteorology issue a strong wind warning and/or forecast high seas (or if there are other factors beyond our control), the skipper may deem an offshore trip unsuitable due to safety reasons. In the event that this may happen, you will be notified and advised how you can reschedule to an alternative date.  


Deposit requirements:

To secure the date, a non-refundable credit card deposit of 20% is required.  Your booking will only be confirmed upon receipt of the deposit.  Note that in paying the deposit, it is inferred that you have read and agreed to our terms and conditions.
