Western Port Bay is a smaller bay than Port Phillip Bay on the other side of the Mornington Peninsula, featuring two large islands, French and Phillip.

Portland Fishing Charters

As one of Victoria’s fishing hot spots, the fertile seas in Portland and along the Discovery Coast offer a wealth of opportunities for keen fishers. There are two boat ramp launching sites in the harbour. Near the Yacht Club there are two ramps and 4 lanes in total.  It’s a wonderful fishing ground for Tuna & Sharks.

My 11-year-old son and I had a memorable day on the water today! With Captain Mal's expertise, we reeled in various species such as whiting, gummies, leather jackets, and flathead. The boat was well-maintained and safe for passengers of all ages. Looking forward to the next trip!

Great day on the water with Les. My 7 year old son had a great time and Les was really helpful with him and that allowed me some fishing time also. I highly recommend this charter.
