Great experience in April 2018 with Darren. Excellent boat with top notch skipper. Really knew where the fish were and as an ardent fisher I had a remarkable time along with the others on the charter. - "The ringer from the top end"

Yes you can certainly take your own fishing gear to Norfolk Island - that will also give you the opportunity to fish from the rocks as well as a day out with Advance Fishing. Hope you have a great time.
