Gavin Solly – Owner & Operator


Gavin Solly has been professionally fishing for 35 years: starting on prawn trawlers and eventually working as the marine engineer on a privately-owned yacht in Europe and the Caribbean. When moving to Kangaroo Island in 1999, he decided to start his own fishing operation and has been successful ever since. Gavin has an extensive marine knowledge of the local area to provide the ultimate experience.

Dylan Solly


Dylan is a qualified diesel mechanic and has been helping Gavin on the boat since he can walk. If he doesn’t work on heavy machinery chances are high that he is fishing.

Alex Solly


Alex is fairly new to the operation and still developing sea legs on the rough days but loves fishing and is a great addition to the team.

Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island (or as we call it “KI”) is the third largest island in Australia and lies 112kms southwest of Adelaide. The island is accessible by a 45-min ride with the SeaLink ferries or regular flights from Adelaide.

With 509km of coastline and a horizontal span of 155kms, it is bigger than one might think. An abundance of bushland, wildlife and adventures is awaiting!

The west of the island, our very own backyard, was recently hit by severe bushfires but is in good recovery and on the best way to its former beauty.
