Shared Charter – Cost for a shared charter is $330 per person. We take up to a maximum of 4 persons on shared charters.

Private Charter – Cost to book the boat exclusively is $1,320 per day. You can take up to 4 people on a private booking.

Multiple day package – For private bookings of 3 days or more Makaira will book out an additional 2 days at no extra cost. This gives you the freedom to pick the best days weather wise to fish, and have some lay-days in between. For example, If you book 3 private charters, we will book out a 5 day block, where we will pick the three best days to fish out of those 5 days.

Alcohol is on a BYO basis.


Pick up and drop off to your accommodation is also supplied. At the time of booking please notify where you will be staying in Broome.


For shared charters no deposit it required. For private charters $200 per day deposit is needed to hold bookings.

Cancellation outside or 2 weeks of booking will incur loss of deposit. Cancellation within 2 weeks of booking will incur loss of full charter cost.

If Makaira cancels for any reason, including bad weather, we will try to reschedule an alternative day. If an alternative day cannot be organised, there will be a refund of full amount paid.
