  • “Would definitely do the trip again”: “I could either go to lunch with the ladies and spend maybe $70 for a couple of hours of social time, or spend a little more and have an amazing day on the beautiful Gold Coast waterways, learn a little more about fishing, and catch some delicious fish to have for lunch the next day.
    Of course I picked fishing and with Bec and her crew helping I’ve had two wonderful days out – one offshore and one inshore and would definitely do the trip again.”

  • “Will Definitely Be Back”: Had an awesome day out on the water caught heaps of fish. Very professional will definitely be back. Thank you.

  • “Action Packed Value For Money”: We were out on the reefs within 15 minutes and straight into the action – the Cobia were biting and the floating baits worked a treat . We moved around to other reefs when things slowed down and had plenty of action . The crew was friendly , helpful and professional and the 5 hour morning charter was definitely value for money . I would definitely recommend this charter company.

  • “Another great day out with BKs”: This Saturday 24/9 did the 6Am trip. Another great day out with BKs and my first time with Bec skippering. She did a great job finding some fish few days after some stormy weather on the Gold Coast. Some Big Fish were caught including a tuna, a few bonito, a 70cm snapper and quite a few big teraglin. And we saw a whale (bonus). We also caught a few fish that were too small so went back. I used to own a 5 metre half cabin. Now I use Bks. and try to get out at least one a month. It is excellent value compared to owning a boat . The gear they provide works and the crew works hard to actively help people especially fishing newbies with baiting , tangles, snags etc. A max of 12 fishers is good for a charter boat. I’ve been on trips with them where I’ve caught nothing and others a lot, but that is just fishing. We (2 of us) took home 1 trag and 2 bonito for a 5 hour outing; a nice feed.

  • “Had a wonderful time fishing on Bk charters”: The skipper Kaleb and the deckie are awesome guys. So far bk charters are the best. Have tried other charters before, but bk stood out from the rest. Thanks team Bk, keep up the good work. Will be back again sometimes,for sure.

  • “Amazing!!!”: I have a goal of taking part in as many fishing charters across Aus when I travel – this one is the best value for money and the team really know their stuff.
    I have told my family and friends about the great day out and have recommended them all to come for a fish next time we travel to the GC!
    Wish I did the full day instead of half day (that’s how good it was!)
    Everyone on board caught a fish (well plenty of them!).

  • “Literally The Ultimate Experience – Private Charter Session”: Normally I am not a big “leave a review” type person, but I really wanted to for BK’s.
    Earlier this week I had the supreme pleasure of booking BKs for a private charter as a gift for my father and a bit of a treat for myself. Right from the beginning in trying to book the (5hr) Private session, they were wonderful to deal with and very patient. I wanted a day where the swell as going to be pretty good. I know no one has a crystal ball on this but we exchanged messages for literally weeks trying to pick/plan the ideal day to be out there. Not all charters will be this transparent with you about how nice the swell is at the moment.
    Amongst all the dodgy weather we have been having lately, the person I was speaking with suggested Tuesday this week and they somehow managed to pick an absolute gem of a morning during this weird weather – maybe they did have a crystal ball after all. The crew on the day told me this was likely Bec at the other end of the phone helping me out with this planning.
    I went out with (I believe their names were Kaleb and Luke) and they were not only extremely professional but just really genuine guys to have the pleasure of spending the morning with on the boat and very patient at that. These guys really worked hard to find the fish. We tried different techniques, and moved the boat around numerous times to re-drift over patches we had success on but also to try different reefs off the coast.
    They kept a very watchful eye all morning as well to make sure everything we were doing was safe, keeping us hydrated, and as other reviews I read below mentioned, constantly keeping all the lines re-rigged and in the water with new baits as needed etc. There was a patch there where I think the poor deckhand tried for about 20 minutes to get a bite out of his sandwhich because he was constantly on his feet keeping us fishing.
    They explained the theory of why we were doing what we were doing as well which was really enjoyable. What a rush of a morning and just the ultimate experience. I kept sitting down just to let the lactic acid feeling in my arms to settle as we had ~15 connections with fish that had the reels screaming and I felt like my arms were going to fall off by the end of it. We went home with an esky full of mackeral and while we had no expectations of “filling the freezer”, it is well and truely full. The boat was comfy and it was a pleasure to cruise along the coast line between the reefs. As we were their last charter for the day they even helped us carry the catch to the car and gave us ice and tips for cooking them.
    At the final reef we went out to one of the sharks that had been chasing our fish came along side the boat – and sat there about 6 feet down right beside the boat. I had never seen a shark that big so close. Wow.
    I would say a huge thanks to Kaleb, Luke and if that was Bec as I think it was liaising with me trying to pick the perfect morning for us to be out there, a big thanks to her too. It really was the ultimate trip and I would say if you want to treat yourself, book a Private charter. I live locally and will definitely be back again. If I could rate them more than 5 stars I would.
