Postponement of a tour by EGS due to bad weather is rare as we are an estuary tour with plenty of sheltered options available. In the event of poor weather (heavy rain, thunderstorms or strong winds) we will contact you to discuss. We will offer you the option of continuing as long as we deem it is safe to do so.
If the tour is postponed due to bad weather the booking fee can be re-scheduled or be refunded. Our vessel is an open boat with no shade or shelter, with this in mind it is advised to bring appropriate clothing and be prepared for inclement weather.
WHAT WE SUPPLY
We supply all safety equipment along with quality fishing rods and reels on a replace if lost or broken basis. Clients are welcome to bring your own fishing rods (limited to one rod per angler) and you must advise us beforehand.
We use Squidgy, Berkely, Zman & Munroes soft plastics as well as Diawa, Bassday, OSP & Atomic hard body lures.
We also supply sunscreen, hand sanitiser, disinfectant wipes and bottled water.
WHAT TO BRING
Hat and/or face buff to protect you from glare and sunlight.
Sunglasses (polarised being the best) are strongly recommended to protect your eyes from glare and sunlight and from any stray lures!
Protective clothing and a spray jacket in case the weather turns inclement.
Appropriate footwear to be worn at all times (no bare feet).
Food, snacks & drinks.
Camera and spare batteries (USB charging ports are on board).
EXTENDING A TOUR
Additional times on the water is available at a rate of $50 per hour if the boat is not already booked.
Anglers who would like to book the boat for competitions are also welcome, however approval from the competition organiser must be provided.
