apache charters
deep sea fishing fremantle

December 16th to March 1st annually

We are based out of Fremantle and have a 70ft or 20 metre purpose built charter vessel called the Lady Grace which has the latest in fish finding electronics and a massive covered lower deck area with plenty of seating, which is just what you need on a deep sea fishing charter.

The skipper Matt Howard is the owner and started Apache Charters back in 1999. Apache charters is one of the very few charter operators which is still owned and operated by the original owner. Matt goes to great lengths to get you on the fish, he is probably the first to head out in the morning and the last one back to port at the end of the day, his catch rates are second to none. Not only does Matt charter fish from Fremantle from December to March 1st annually, he spends all year round fishing up and down the coast . From March 8th to November 20th annually, Matt and the crew on Lady Grace head up north and operate live aboard fishing charters at the Abrolhos, Shark Bay, Dirk Hartog, Steep Point, Exmouth, Onslow and the Montebellos – he knows the coast and he knows his fishing!

On the Fremantle charters we fish in depths of water from 45 to 200 metres and travel up to 65 KMS from Fremantle to find fish . So if it’s a real deep sea fishing charter targeting the dhufish and snapper than book your fishing trip with Apache.
Apache Charters has thousands of secret fishing spots off the metro coast. If you want to catch fish - come with us, we have the best catch rates in town.

We target species such as Dhufish, Pink Snapper, Red Snapper, Breaksea Cod, and Baldchin Groper on our standard fishing charters.


What sets us apart from everybody else? We catch more fish and we don't overcrowd. We have a 70ft vessel and we only fish a maximum of 18 persons with up to 20 on board.

Our start times are 7.00 am returning between 3.30 – 4.00 pm. Departing from Jetty Three, Capo Dorlando Drive Fremantle, the vessel name is Lady Grace. (please see our map on our website). Free parking at Capo Dorlando Drive car park .

Ever effort is made to make sure your day is an enjoyable success. Obviously weather conditions are critical to a successful day on the water. Apache Charters never have and never will take our clients out for a day’s fishing on the ocean when the conditions are unfavorable.

Our friendly office team will contact you on the day before your charter at approx 4.30pm to 5.00pm to confirm departure details once we have checked the weather report. If we cancel due to unsatisfactory weather conditions we will reschedule your booking.
