Mr Flathead

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.
