About Ulladulla Fishing Charters
Ulladulla Fishing Charters offers daily reef fishing charters from the safe, easily accessible port of Ulladulla Harbour.
We take up to 8 passengers on a half-day fishing trip suitable for novice and experienced anglers. We supply and take care of all the preparations for fishing, so customers can sit back, relax and enjoy the fishing experience.
We also offer sight-seeing/whale watching trips for up to 10 passengers taking in the local landmarks and marine life and allowing our customers to feel up close to the marine animals we encounter.
We appreciate good customer service and we strive to offer the same to our customers from the point of enquiry and booking to the loading of the vessel and throughout their entire adventure.
Our vessel “Rokn Robyn” is a beautiful survey built 34ft fibreglass Steber, immaculate inside and out and recently fitted with the latest technology and facilities. With twin Yanmar 315hp engines she cruises to our fishing grounds at a good pace of 16-18 knots giving us less travel time and more fishing time. She is steady and comfortable while travelling and also at rest which makes for a nice solid fishing platform.
Ulladulla Fishing Charters purchased her in November 2021 and renamed her “Rokn Robyn” She was AMSA surveyed in May 2022 and is now approved to carry 10 passengers and 2 crew under 2C survey and also holds 2D survey. In June 2022 we had her fitted out with the latest Garmin sounder and radar equipment along with an ultrasonic Airmar Transducer.
Survey built in the Steber manufacturing plant on the Mid North Coast of NSW, she was first commissioned in 2000 as a Marine Rescue Vessel Crown Rescue One based in Port Macquarie.
In 2015-2016 she was sold and relocated to Port Stephens. Her new owners returned her to the Steber factory for an interior refurbishment which included extending the cab, adding a kitchenette and dining area with indoor seating for 6, a toilet and shower and outdoor seating for 8. Known as Crown Mary Ellen 111, she spent most of this time running transfers between Nelson Bay and Broughton Island.
Ulladulla Fishing Charters is a family affair, owned and operated by Daniel Cockroft and his wife Laura Cockroft.
Daniel’s lifetime love of fishing and being on the ocean inspired him to run his own fishing charter and he took over Ulladulla Fishing Charters early in 2017. Daniel holds his Master 5 Skipper license and is well know for his friendly and professional approach onboard, always striving to make his customers feel welcome and have a great experience while chasing the fish.
Laura takes care of customer enquiries and administration for the business. Laura’s friendly service provides customers with detailed and prompt responses to their enquiries and ensures an efficient and simple booking process. Laura loves fishing and grabs any chance she can to come along on a fishing charter.
