The Tidemaster is a 12 metre cruise boat licensed to carry 40 passengers, and operates exclusively for fishing charters and cruises.

The Tidemaster has recently been refurbished and now has wheelchair access.


The Tidemaster departs from Sawtellis Inlet in Tooradin Victoria, and cruises the top end of Western Port.

Tidemaster Charters and Cruises cater for a wide variety of cruises including fully catered cruises, fishing trips, sightseeing trips, birthday partys, afternoon tea cruises, lunch cruises and environmental and educational cruises.

The Tidemaster boat is now owned and operated by Brett Kendell, a local who has lived in the area for the past 15 years.

Brett holds a current Coxswain Certificate with Marine Safety Transport Victoria, which enables him to take passengers up to 15 nautical miles offshore.

With Bretts extensive expertise in fishing Western Port, you can be assured that when you undertake a charted fishing expedition with us, the best fishing spots will be reached, and fish will be caught.
