We were picked up at 6:15 at the base of Ives Steps. He was on time and we were off to our fishing adventure. Adam and I had emailed back and forth a couple of times to confirm the pickup and other details before arriving in Sydney from Seattle. I had asked about Groupon pricing and he honored it directly.

The fishing didn't turn out so well but I think everyone had a good time. There were 12 people on the boat and we fished off one side so the rods were side by side.

The group kept 15 fish with at least the same in throw backs. The weather was coming up and we were drifting at 5 knots he said. Dropping the line to bottom and waiting for a bite wasn't working too well in this weather.

There was some spray and people did get wet from waves. We were dropped off at the same place.

Thanks again Adam and crew.

Just been to Blue Reef Fishing Charters at Rose bay. Adam and his crew were great and know their fishing spots. They first took time to clean up their boat after the earlier fishing tour was over, and ensured that their sense of humour and friendliness was at its best while they took us some 11km from the shore in to the deep sea. We landed a 7Kilo Mako shark, which was our highlight of our day. Plenty of red snappers and flatties as well. I would certainly recommend this charter to everyone.

Went fishing with the boys last week, 5 of us had the best day out, so much fun. Shared the day with 8 other people but plenty of space to fish and kickback. Adam and his crew are just good blokes, very relaxed, very accommodating and knowledgeable. On time Pick up from Rose bay Wharf. We were out for 4 hours and caught enough to eat for days. All fishing gear was provided but for first timers or not strong stomach's would recommend a shorter trip. Whether your fishing in the harbour or way out too sea you will not be disappointed with Blue Reef Fishing Charters.

So took the boys out from work fishing and it was great!!! Adam and his crew are top fisherman, really relaxed and couldn't have been a better crew. We caught a ton of fish saw humpback whales dancing and splashing around. It was the best charter I've ever been on not just in Sydney I'm talking world wide I've been Fiji, Cook Islands, Great Barrier Reef, Thailand and Sydney Wollongong, Kiama, Merimbula. Blue reef charters by far the best!

Decided a day out fishing would be nice and glad I did. Picked up right on time at Rose Bay wharf and met a couple of other groups sharing the charter. Boat was well presented and fitted wit everything we needed. Good quality rods, reels etc and plenty of assistance from crew on board. As soon as we dropped our lins we had fish on - and a great variety of fish with very few undersized or not worth keeping.
