Mr Flathead

Cruises, Sailing and Water Tours

For a memorable fishing and sightseeing trip, join Mr Flathead at Dodges Ferry. Dodges Ferry is a 30-minute drive from Tasmania’s capital city, Hobart, and en route to historic Port Arthur.
With the majestic Mount Wellington as a backdrop, spend your morning cruising the pristine waterways of Frederick Henry Bay, Norfolk Bay and Storm Bay taking in the breathtaking unspoilt scenery.
Your qualified and experienced local guide knows all the “hot spots” and beautiful sights around Tasmania’s gorgeous southern beaches, one of Australia’s best-kept secrets. You only need to reel in the fish and take in the scenery while he does all the hard work – cleaning, filleting and putting your catch on ice.
You will often share this smooth and sheltered waterway with a playful pod of dolphins, a humpback or southern right whale, a shy fairy penguin, a mass of migrating shearwater or a visiting seal.
Whether you wish to experience a family-friendly fishing charter or a day away fishing with your mates, Mr Flathead will ensure a great day.
You will find Mr Flathead by travelling south-east of Hobart along the Port Arthur highway, turning right into Dodges Ferry and meeting at the Dodges Ferry boat ramp.

Let Mr Flathead do all the hard work as you reel in your catch – you’re sure to bag a good feed of “flatties”. The humble flathead is Tasmania’s most abundant species of fish but with a growing reputation as a top quality table fish, it never fails to satisfy, be it crumbed, battered, baked, or just pan-fried “nude”. Have your catch cleaned, filleted, and put straight on to ice as you continue to try for that “Big One”!!
So do yourself a favour and join Mr Flathead for an enjoyable and uniquely Tasmanian fishing tour.
