Bluey’s have reopened as COVID restrictions have eased sufficiently to enable us to operate safely and effectively. Personal safety vests, hire equipment and boats are shared between groups therefore we have made a decision that all people 16+ years of age are required to be COVID vaccinated, must scan the QR-Code and present their COVID certificate prior to boarding the boat or utilising our facilities. All boats, hire equipment and personal safety vests (life jackets) will be cleaned and sanitised after each use. The health and welfare of our customers and staff is our absolute priority and we thank you for your support.

Get on the water as soon as possible if you want to experience fishing at it’s finest. We are the Snapper Season Specialists and Mordialloc is the home of the Big Reds!.
