Our customers range from 9 year old boys n girls to 81 year old adventurers, all with varying skills and abilities, so if you want the best light tackle game fishing experience in Broome, Contact Us.

Specialists in light tackle game fishing and tournaments

Billfish Charters specialise in full day game fishing, targeting mainly Sailfish, Marlin, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia & Longtail Tuna.. We’ve been chartering out of Broome for over 20 years and are the best at what we do.We are 3 time winners of the Billfish Classic tournament held in July by the Broome Fishing Club, Winners of the A.I.B.T. and for more achievements have a look at our Highlights page.

Your fishing experience

Sail fishing is likened to sight fishing at its best, in other words you get to see the sailfish when your dropping a bait back to it. On the trip out to the grounds you’ll be shown how, when & why to drop a switch bait back to hungry sailfish and a bit of the terminology we use as well. Our experienced & helpful deckie Shannon and myself are there to give assistance as the both of us ‘love catching sailfish’ and expect a full hands on day. Have a look at our Facebook page to see what we catch.


Our season starts in March and goes thru to November weather dependant. Around mid June the Humpback whales and bait schools start appearing in numbers. 'Where there’s Whales there’s Sailfish. Contact us for a price on multiple day charters.

We also offer the option of reef fishing for full day private charter bookings. We target blue bone, coral trout, red emperor and many more.

We also offer barra charters through the wet season (November to March). We have a custom 6 metre centre colsole custom designed boat for Broome rivers and creeks. We target Threadfin, Barramundi, blue nose and triple tail etc.

Wildlife we come across

The wildlife out there is amazing, humpback whales, pilot whales, turtles, dolphins, sea snakes, frigates, turns, jesus birds, budgerigars just to name a few.

What to bring

Bring your polarised sunnies (to see the fish) and a peaked cap, better suited for hearing the skipper when spotting Sailfish in the spread. Make sure you have "slip on shoes" as we leave from the beach and if you like a couple of beers or a wine at the end of the day feel free to bring them along.
