Nepean River Tours

Cruises, Sailing and Water Tours

Nepean River Tours offers fishing charters and river tours of the Nepean River and Warragamba River Gorges. The gorges are a true hidden gem of Sydney with high sandstone cliffs, an abundance of wildlife including resident sea eagles, kingfishers and bell birds, and of course wonderful freshwater fishing.

Nepean River Tours is a freshwater lure fishing specialist, using quality fishing equipment and a custom built Bass boat. You will be escorted by a local fishing guide, targeting Bass, Mullet, Carp, Herring and more. All equipment is supplied, including a fishing licence and light refreshments and snacks; all you need to bring is a hat and don’t forget your camera.

Your guide is Steve Defina, who lives locally and has been fishing locally for many years.


From $249 to $498

Set out from the wharf at Tench Reserve, Penrith and head up river deep into the Nepean Gorge. The most popular tour is half day (approximately 4.5 hours) at anytime that suits you.

The custom built boat allows passage to places where few people, let alone fishing people, get to go.

Truly the catching of fish is a bonus as you are in an amazing natural wonderland, sheer sandstone gorge walls, huge gums, clear clean water, sea eagles flying overhead, fish leaping from the water – a true hidden treasure.

All the equipment you will need is supplied. All you need to bring is a hat and jacket, and your fishing licence for the day is included. Water, drinks and snacks is available on board.
