Home About Us
Doongara Fishing and Charters is based at Eaglehawk Neck, located on the beautiful Tasman Peninsula in South East Tasmania, Australia.
The area is renowned as one of Tasmania's premier game and sport fishing locations.

We offer a great Tasmanian fishing charter experience with a wide variety of charter fishing options to suit all types of saltwater angling, or you can sit back and enjoy the amazing coastal scenery and marine life the area has to offer.

Large Bluefin, Yellowfin, Albacore, Mako sharks, Swordfish and the occasional Striped Marlin and Kingfish are available in these productive waters, which are a rich feeding ground for big predators.

"The fishing is world class, the action is exciting, and the coastline is breathtaking."

This region has produced many record gamefish, and currently holds over a dozen Australian records in different categories for Southern Bluefin Tuna alone, including the all tackle record.

The crew is highly experienced, with a life time background in game and sportfishing, including many years professionally, and has won tournaments, Club events, and held many Club, State and Australian Records. The crew are members of the "Tuna Club of Tasmania", and fish under "Game Fishing Association of Australia" rules and regulations. All Crew members hold the required qualifications, licenses, and certificates, and we operate under a "Safety Management Plan"
