Sunshine Coast Fishing Charters, from Mooloolaba & Noosa


Our new business name is Sunshine Coast Afloat.

Fish n Crab Deep Sea Fishing Charters is now the Fishing Charter component of Sunshine Coast Afloat.

As such, certain sections of this website – those not really related to Deep Sea Fishing – will eventually open in our main website – – to ensure consistency of the information required on this site, avoid confusions (the reason for the rebranding in the first place) and in general to make bookings, enquiries and advise on availability.

The Fish n Crab Charters product continues to focus on providing the ultimate in Sunshine Coast Fishing Charters with different offerings to suit all levels of experience.

Come see for yourself  why we were rated the best tourism experience available in 2014, and again a finalist for the same in 2015, for the entire Sunshine Coast. We were also awarded the Certificate of Excellence in 2017 by TripAdvisor!

We depart from beautiful Mooloolaba, the safest entry to the ocean on the Sunshine Coast.  Safety is paramount in everything we do!

Of course Fish n Crab Deep Sea Charters is totally aimed at making sure you have the best possible time out on the water!

Our entire focus is aimed at bringing fun and enjoyment back to Sunshine Coast Fishing charters, regardless of the conditions and results on the day!

For starters, you should never feel like a canned sardine just because you are Charter Fishing!  After all,  comfort and space are the key to enjoying yourself out on the water!


This is one of the reasons we say: SIZE DOES MATTER!

  • Crusader 1, our vessel,  provides more deck space than any other vessel and is able to accommodate up to 25 people in comfort and safety. We could carry many passengers, more but this would go against our very reason for operating! In fact we almost never even carry 25! (unless a single group requests it). Click here for more information on Crusader 1.
  • Our crew, who are nothing short of amazing., are another major factor We honestly don’t have a charter where our customers don’t return raving about them! Their focus is to make sure you have the maximum amount of fun and enjoyment during your time out with us. They are there to help, assist, guide and even instruct if so desired. 
  • Our fishing equipment is high end, modern and constantly updated (see here). High end Fin Nor Spins reels are our main weapon of choice, but for those wanting an overhead we also carry the top level Okuma reels. There are of course also a few lighter reels for the kids and ladies that feel they might enjoy that a bit more.

Try us and we are certain you will agree. This is how all fishing charters should be!

Allow us to provide you with an experience that is extremely memorable, enjoyable and rewarding in every aspect!


Simply the ultimate in Fishing Charters!
