Double Threat Charters – Yeppoon. By Dom Fry

Double Threat Charters operates a 2012 Leisurecat 8000 out of Yeppoon on Queensland’s beautiful Capricorn Coast.

The boat was originally built to chase marlin off the Western Australian coast. This vessel is built tough and with a full cab it’s a dry ride no matter the weather conditions. They have all of the essentials on board including a fridge, stereo, the latest electronics to find fish and for everyone’s comfort – a toilet! Pushed along by two Suzuki 200 hp four strokes, the run out to the fishing grounds is quick and comfortable.

Charters available include spearfishing, line fishing, cruising and the team can also organise PADI Freedivers Courses. Tim and Jessica Price have been the owner/operators for two years and they pride themselves in quality service, great fishing and diving experiences to be remembered. Many of their punters are returning loyal customers – a great testimonial in itself!


Catering is all part of the deal with cold water and soft drinks supplied along with a great selection of home-made goodies! Live Fibre rods and ATC reels are the quality combos provided for clients to catch their fish of a lifetime, or of course you can bring your own! Coral trout, red emperor, various trevally and mackerel species and a large range of reef fish are regular catches with Double Threat Charters.

Keppel Bay and beyond provide a plethora of fishing, diving, snorkelling and exploring options! You won’t be disappointed! Visit for lots more info or give Skipper Tim a call on 0447 210 099 to create your trip of a lifetime!
