Multiple day packages

For private bookings of 3 days or more Makaira can 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.

Departure/Return Times

Due to Broome’s massive tides (can be up to 10 Metres) our departure/return times can vary a little from day to day. Estuary charters run for approximately 7 hours and Bluewater charters are approximately 8 hours.

Food and Drinks

Morning tea and lunch are provided and are included in the cost, along with water and soft drinks.

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 there is no deposit needed, but credit card details are required to hold the booking. For private charters a $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.

Liability Conditions

However, due to the nature of the environment we are often fishing in, at times there may be some level of risk. It is expected that each customer understands and accepts the risks involved when booking onto a charter and accepts ultimate responsibility for any loss or damage to their personal property, or any personal illness or injury.

Loss or damage of gear
