Come and fish the remote Montebello Islands with Apache Charters on the fully equipped 20-metre charter vessel the Lady Grace. The Montebello islands are situated 240 km north of Exmouth and the waters surrounding the islands are full of fish and a diverse range of marine life.
Our vessel is a true Bluewater fishing machine.
Being a full live aboard charter vessel means we can go where we want, when we want at the Monties, which means you get to anchor and explore different areas of the island group every day. So you get to see all of the Montebello Islands with us in comfort and style.
So whether it's fishing the offshore reefs or fishing inside the island group, you are going to have a fantastic fishing experience for your Montebello Island Fishing Charter.
