|Travel and Accommodation Tips||
Sydney and the surrounding area is packed with betters to be found when you book ahead or take advantage of the many last minute deal websites in heavy competition. Unless there is spectacularly large event on in Sydney, there's always accommodation to suit all budget types available.
As there is limited time, a single location is normally arrange in advance so that we do lose any fishing charter time and make the most out of each half day charter. If time is lost, Adam does his best to make it up for you.
We're flexible where we can pick up from, allowing you a greater choice of accommodation knowing you're not far from Blue Reef Charters. We prefer to pick up from Watson Bay Ferry Wharf, Mosman Wharf, Rose Bay and the Casino Wharf as all of these provide convenient in and out access with the most safety - parking is also available under the Casino at relatively low rates however a pickup at Pyrmont Bay (Casino Wharf) will incur an extra charge of $35 as a result of NSW RMS fees.
Manly Wharf, Balmain Wharf, Lavender Bay and Balmoral Wharf are also not a problem if you are staying outside of the CBD. All of these locations are easy to find on Google Maps and we advise you be on location at least 15 minutes before your scheduled pickup time.
Once a booking is made, a deposit of $400 is to be made to confirm and secure the booking. We accept EFT transfers or direct bank deposits. The balance can be made EFT cleared prior to charter day or cash payments made on boarding the vessel prior to departure without exception.
If a charter is cancelled due to poor weather or unforeseen circumstances by Blue Reef Fishing Charters, a full refund of moneys paid, and will be processed within 24hrs. If cancellation occurs due to such reasons as you don't show up to the wharf, the $400 deposit not refunded as we lose a booked date.
