Highlights

Apollo Bay Fishing & Adventure Tours

With 30 years of professional fishing knowledge, the skipper knows the best spots. Apollo Bay Fishing & Adventure Tours generally travel 15-20 mins south of Apollo Bay Harbor, about half to 1km offshore. The area is surrounded by spectacular rugged coastline of the Otway rangers and the beauty of the waters of Bass Strait and the Southern Ocean. Apollo Bay Fishing & Adventure Tours cater for the inexperienced to the professional fisherman. From baiting up for you and taking your fish off your hooks, to teaching you how to fish. You will fish in 20 fathoms of water using heavy gear, targeting bottom feeding fish, such as flathead or gummy shark, barracouta and snapper. Trips vary from two hours for families to eight hours for the more keen fisherman. The most popular trip is four hours long. This trip usually runs twice a day starting at 7am or 8am in the morning and again at 2pm or 3pm in the afternoon. Apollo Bay Fishing & Adventure Tours supply all the best fishing gear, rod, bait and tackle; Ice for your fishing and to keep your drinks cold; bags to take your catch home. The crew is trained and helpful. The skipper is an expert operator with all the necessary local knowledge.

Apollo Bay Fishing

There are loads of great fishing spots in and around Apollo Bay. Try near the harbour, from the beach or just beyond the point towards Marengo. There are also freshwater streams nearby worth a try.

Apollo Bay Foreshore

The sheltered, sandy Apollo Bay main beach is a great place to swim or bodysurf. Just behind the sand dunes, the Apollo Bay foreshore area has a terrific playground, skate park, lots of open space for games and picnic and BBQ facilities. Right opposite the main street food outlets and ice-creameries, it’s perfect for grabbing an al fresco bite to eat.

Apollo Bay Harbour

The Apollo Bay Fishing Fleet is moored at the harbour, sheltered by a large breakwater. As a working harbour it is an interesting site to wander through and see the professional fishermen either unloading their catch or preparing to depart on another voyage to sea. Apollo Bay is renowned for crayfish, and the stacks of lobster pots stacked up on the wharves make an interesting spectacle. The daily catch is available fresh from the boat at the local fishermens cooperative.

Apollo Bay Fisherman's Co-op

Apollo Bay Fisherman's Co-op is located along Great Ocean Road past Torquay, south of Melbourne and Geelong, in the Otway wine region, in South Western Victoria. Apollo Bay Fisherman's Co-op is the perfect one stop seafood shop and an excellent way to purchase the local seafood. The local fishing fleet of Apollo Bay ensures a fresh supply of seafood throughout the region, especially known for the excellent supply of flake and crayfish (available live from the tank or freshly cooked). Locally caught fish includes flathead, grenadier, king george whiting, couta, sea bream and (in season) snapper. Apollo Bay Fisherman's Co-op also stocks the best available fish from wholesale markets, to supplement the excellent local catches (and inclement weather) so there is an abundance of salmon, oysters, prawns, the list goes on.
