Captains Log

One of the longest running fishing charter businesses and boat, the "jillian" 

is now reluctantly up for grabs.

This is an opportunity to buy a walk in start to a well established, fantastic business in the ever-growing tourism market of the mornington peninsula.

All the hard work has been done. The vessel is in great condition with a fresh coat of paint ready for the busy holiday season and we can assist with any training that you may need to get you started.

Dont miss this rare opportunity for the ultimate "sea change" experience.

If your interested give me a call on 0418148426 or 0408033319

The 2016/17 summer fishing season has so far been a cracker with many magical days out on Port Phillip Bay. Punters of all ages continue to enjoy the excitement of hooking a fish and the ambience of being adrift aboard the good old Jillian!

Some words from our happy customers...

‘Thank you so much for Dec’s fishing birthday today. The boys had a ball! Word on the street is best birthday ever! You guys have it all over Laser Tag, Paint Ball and all the other party stuff. Jon and Mark couldn’t have been more accommodating.’

‘Thanks for such a great day out. We thoroughly enjoyed it!’

‘Jon and Mark are superstars. Thanks for making our fishing experience a great one.’

‘My kids were thrilled at their first catch on the Jillian. Jon made sure we were well looked after. The kids had a ball. Great activity to cure some school holiday boredom.’

Just as in times gone by when Jack Pompei was famously known for his Port Phillip Bay rescues,

our heroic Captain Jon went to the rescue of a dingy in distress on Christmas Eve.

He sucessfully towed the stricken dingy to safety averting a possible Christmas disaster

Old Jack would be proud
