About Us

Perth Fishing Safaris is a fully licenced, insured and accredited professional fishing guide service that offers rock and beach fishing tours for small groups of anglers out of Perth. We'll take you to beaches and rock ledges that offer some of the best land based fishing opportunities in the world. Our goal is to put clients onto big fish that fight hard. Our specialties are tailor, mulloway, snapper, sharks, shovelnose and rays and on certain trips our clients can target samsonfish, spanish mackerel, cobia, tuna, sailfish, wahoo and more. While our safaris are predominantly based around fishing, four wheel driving and sightseeing are also on the agenda. It's not uncommon to see kangaroos, emus and reptiles on our safaris and if you're lucky you might see dolphins surfing the waves, seals snoozing on the beach or whales cruising the deep blue.

Our fishing trips cater for beginners right through to the most advanced. All of your gear, bait and tackle is provided and you're welcome to bring your own gear too. The gear we supply is top of the range from Shimano, Halco and other reputable brands. The fishing can be as much or as little hands on as you like. If you've got absolutely no idea what you're doing that's great, just relax, we'll do everything for you and teach you as we go, so that next time you go fishing you'll be a pro! On the other hand if you're a seasoned fisho who knows what your doing just let us know, we'll put you on the money and let you do your own thing.


We are proud supporters of catch and release fishing, however, if you choose to keep the fish you catch that's perfectly fine. We can even fillet your catch for you at your request.

The reason Robbie started Perth Fishing Safaris is to give locals and holiday makers an option to go fishing for large fish from the shore, with the added bonus of exploring the coastline and being taught the ins and outs of rock and beach fishing. On our guided fishing tours you'll have an entire expanse of coast to yourself, with a maximum of 4 anglers per vehicle/guide. Some of the mackerel, samsonfish, mulloway, sharks and guitarfish we catch are over 30kg in weight - captures that will absolutely blow your mind!

We also hold beach fishing lessons right here in Perth. We'll teach you everything you need to know to get started, including what tackle, bait, outfits to use as well as casting techniques, safety and how to read a beach. Large group classes for schools and corporations can also be accommodated, please enquire within for large group bookings.
