      Massive pod of 8 whales
      Booked tickets through red balloon and they didn’t disappoint! Brooke the marine biologist on board from Aqua was anazing , her knowledge and love for the whales was next level . She not only spoke about the massive Pod of male humpback whales we saw but how Killer whales were their biggest predators! I thought killer whales were whales , they are dolphins and they are vicious ! We had an amazing birthday for my daughter and saw a pod of 8 whales ! Well done Rottnest Fast ferries !

      Highly recommended fishing trip
      Spent the day fishing with my daughter and had a great time. Natasha, Mark and Mick are super friendly and helpful. We didn’t land a huge catch, but more than enough for dinner. The boat is well maintained and comfortable. Great food during the day too. Highly recommended.

      One off the Bucket list!
      Had a wonderful 3 hour Whale Watching trip today. Saw heaps of whales and learnt lots about them too. Brooke shared her Marine Biologist knowledge with us and kept us informed about the whales and where to spot them throughout the trip. Always wanted to do this and would recommend to anyone that loves nature and the ocean. Thanks Perth Whale Watching. Lisa Thomas

      Excellent customers service
      So impressed with Mills Charters, we had booked a whale watching cruise with them knowing that it was coming to the end of the whale migration. The got in touch to say sadly there seemed to be very few whales now and offered a different cruise or a refund. Such great service as they could have just taken us out and said seeing a whale wasn't a guarantee. Will definitely be booking with then next year. 10/10 for service and communication!

      Whale Watching Trip....just breathtaking
      Absolute fantastic experience! best day out on the Ocean, Sun 17th November...almost at Rottnest Island...when a solo whale surfaced for breath...thinking it was a humpback we watched on in excitement as it swam alongside the boat..as it came closer we were advised by the crew that it wasnt a Humpback ..but a Pygmy Blue Whale..it was truly breathtaking...just so majestic as it swam effortlessly alongside us... I feel truly blessed...so lucky to have experienced this amazing wild creature...almost couldn't believe my eyes.. and no more than 8 metres from the boat... completely overwhelming. I have nothing but admiration for the Crew of Mills Charters.. professional...friendly and so knowledgable..a very special thankyou..its an experience I will never forget 🐳

      Must do in WA
      Friendly, welcoming crew who made safey briefing priority before setting off. Out for 3 hours and found whales in about 30 minutes. At the mercy of the whales on what you see. We saw mother and calf. They came quite close, but not right up alongside. Crew followed and turned several times to give us the best viewing opportunities. Would recommend doing! Thank you for a great afternoon guys!!!

      Saw lots of whales and dolphins
      The crew were a friendly group of people, and knew just where to find the whales. We saw lots of them and my UK friend had a great experience. There were families aboard too, with ages 8 up, so it was an educational adventure for them too. Highly recommended.

      Great fishing for novice and expert.
      The fishing trip was a birthday present from my family. I love fishing but am not too good at it. All the staff were extremely helpful and made sure all visitors had the best opportunity to get 'that fish'. The amenities on the boat were great and there was plenty of food, snacks and drinks for everyone. I had a great time and to top it off I caught an 82cm snapper! Well worth taking this charter.

      Saw quite a few whales
      Good cruise with quite a few whale sightings did find that it was difficult to access the front deck but this was more because of the other passengers rather than the crew/boat. Good that we got out to the area quite fast so there was quite a bit of time near where the whales were.

      More than I ever expected - fantastic afternoon experience
      I can't recommend this experience enough, best Sunday afternoon out on the water. We saw at least one or two whales every half an hour over a 3 to 4 hour period it was amazing. From tail flipping, to flipper flapping to them rolling over in the water and even saw a whale breach, hearing them breath and seeing them glide in the water was incredible. The crew were great, and I take my hat off to the captain he gets close enough so you can see the whales but still respects their space and environment, often shutting off the engine so you are drifting on the water and can hear these graceful animals in their natural environment. I definitely recommend you go on a day when there isn't too much swell (makes spotting the whales easier and the ride a bit smoother) and travel calm or sea sickness tablets are a good idea too (you are out of the water for awhile). Such a memorable afternoon and very good value for the money.

    After a busy year I was happy to get out on the ocean for a day of fishing, from the minute I stepped onto the boat the crew were friendly and knowledgeable.
    These guys are experienced fishing charter operators and understand the importance of customer service. From the safety talk all the way through to the whole fishing experience I felt relaxed and really enjoyed my day.
    Walking off the boat with my fish was awesome.
    Thank You Mills Charters and your crew. See you again soon.

    Big shout out for Mills charters ! Myself & my son Jack (15) took this opportunity as was hish wish to catch a big fish. A decent haul was pulled in on the saturday by most, with some nice fish. Unfortunatly we were unable to get a hook _up The swell was large and the tide was drifting.... Huge thanks to Mick (decky) & the skipper. We had a great day ! And Mick even gave Jack a break sea cod, he caught off the back off the boat earlier. Thanks Mick & Mills charters Andrew. Tight lines peeps, We defo be back for the whale watching !

    Mills charters are certainly professionals when it comes to giving you a great day or half day ( or night) fishing trip. Everything is provided , all the gear as well as non alcoholic drinks and snacks.
    They cannot guarantee that everyone will catch a fish every time but the skipper certainly knows the ": hot spots" where the fish hang out.
    If you have ever suffered any kind of motion sickness I STRONGLY suggest you take medication before you leave. 10 minutes out of harbour the Indian Ocean is often rough as. You dont want to spend the whole trip in the toilet as some did.
    Overall a must do if you are a water baby of any description.

    Oh no! Seasickness can get the better of even the most enthusiastic customers and put an abrupt end to the ability to fish! We are sorry you felt ill all day and certainly recommend tablets before departure. Thank you for taking the time to review us favorably even though your own illness prevented you from fishing. Much appreciated.

    Cramming to many onto a boat made a day of mess. Spent most of the day in tangles with lines everywhere. 24 people on a boat. Felt sorry for the deckhands dealing with a tangle of mess. Spoke to a lot of customers and most weren’t happy. Don’t think I’ll be a returning customer to mills charters again.

    Sounds like a frustrating day on board and unfortunately sometimes when the winds are low the tangles can be a problem. Certainly is a busy time of year and we would love to see you out again with us for sure in the future on a not so busy day and hopefully with a bit more wind! Fishing can be very rewarding but also a challenge! Thanks for the feedback anyway and have a Happy New Year.

    Can not recommend this trip enough!!! It was such an awesome experience from start to finish. I went with my father, partner and father in-law. Staff were well organized for the day, so very helpful and super nice. Made sure everyone had the best experience equally! Almost everyone went home with a catch! The day was well thought out and knew the day was going to be great!
    Spots were hit and miss, some were catching and some unlucky. Fish weren’t probably biting as much for the day anyways. Ended up going home with the biggest catch of the day 👍🏽 Win win

    7 years ago I was a semi regular with Mills charters and skipper Anthony always put me on the fish, well seven years later, he’s still with them and put me on the fish again today, what a trip! My arms are so sore, Anthony and Mitch (deckie) were great, helpful, knowledgeable and made everyone feel welcome, I can’t recommend Mills charters highly enough, thanks for a fantastic and memorable day guys 👍

    Went on my 3rd trip with Mills and was disappointed yet again. Not sure I'll fish the waters off Perth ever again if this is what counts for fishing here. The day we went out, the conditions were poor (which is mother nature and excusable). However, the captain first tried to put us on fish at 90 meters with terrible gear provided for the fishers without their own. 90 meters with mono line, a direct drive reel and 25 knot winds meant the lines went out at 45 degree angles. Good luck feeling any fishbite with those conditions. So that meant we had to go to shallower waters, meaning essentially no fish since everything within 20 miles of Perth seems fished out. I understand poor conditions (mother nature) and cheap gear (since it is a Charter- but I would at least put braided line on if you want to fish that deep), however, the worst part was the poor crew. As a fairly experienced fisherman (and a former fishing guide who has fished all over the world), I know there are things your can do for people onboard to make their day better when things are not going great. The two young irishmen beside me got almost no help from the dekkies, they had no idea what they were doing and were essentially left alone (not excusable). While the boat was clean, the crew was really not interested in being out there on a winter day. But the worst part was that the captain put the drift only over the back of the boat, the front 6 people did not catch a single fish all day while the back of the boat, perhaps 15 small fish (including about 1/2 that were less than 12 inches and considered keepers?). The captain and the dekkies should keep track and work for everyone, not just the mates at the back (who they seemed to know). I would not spend good money again on a fishing trip with Mills, I am a forgiving sort and understand the vagaries of fishing, but 3 times unlucky is pretty tough to take.

    Got to say had one of the best days fishing ever with Mills Charter. Mark was excellent and dropped us on some pretty hot snapper spots, and had lots of fun with some sambo's. The whole day was a great experience and can't wait to do it again. Thanks Mark and the crew for making it an awesome day I will never forget.
