Phillip Island is a ripper spot for boaties with easy port access and a gateway to Bass Strait. There are many chances to fish off the local jetties, surf beaches, and coastline.

If you want to join sea cruises or fish on Phillip Island, you have the chance. Book a Phillip Island Tour; these optional tours will be a nice bonus for you on this trip.

Phillip Island and San Remo have fishing and boating

Why not book a spot on a local charter for adventure with a mate or pop down to one of the many jetties and piers to have a crack at fishing yourself? Local fishing charters include Reel Obsession and Fishing Charters. And for all your fishing gear, swing by Jim's Bait and Tackle in San Remo.

Right now, you'll need a licence to fish for fun in Western Port, and there are a fair few rules about the minimum size of fish you can keep, how you can collect bait and the right way to catch different species. Plus, if you're out on the water, there are strict rules about getting too close to wildlife like whales. Best to brush up on these rules to avoid copping a fine.

When it comes to boating on Victorian waters, there are a bunch of specific regulations you need to know about. These cover boat licences, safety gear, life jackets, flares, and drinking while on board. It's a good idea to have a yarn with the Marine Safety Board of Victoria or grab a copy of the Victorian Boating Guide from the local police station or fishing shop.
