About Us

Tessa and Syd have lived and breathed boats, the ocean and fishing their whole lives.

Both are qualified skippers and keen fishermen/women and this business has given them the platform to do what they love every day.

They now get to share their local knowledge and passion for fishing and boating with visitors to the region.

Although Tessa still loves to get a line wet, since having their daughter Pearl, she runs the logistical side of the business while Syd is hands on pulling in the big ones.

The custom-built vessel Reel Therapy is designed for speed, comfort and stability to get you to your desired destination fast for maximum fishing time.

Whether it’s the inshore reefs, a quick trip to the Low Isles or cruising the estuary systems, parents can relax while on-board the Stabicraft 609 Frontier designed with high sides to keep the little ones safe.
