Capt. Chris “Sharky” MilesCell Phone: 0427 572 684Website: Visit the website

Capt. Chris “Sharky” Miles has worked his way up through the ranks to become well known in the industry for his fishing abilities and consistencies, and has great expectations of continuing the same for many more years to come.

Sharky has driven game boats varying in size from 44’ to 65’ that are all fully equipped with the creature comforts for up to four persons that may be required at sea. Living aboard permits the boat to fish later and extends flexibility and mobility in chasing the fish to different parts of the reef reducing travel time is also an advantage and anchoring in the protected waters behind the reef at night gives anglers a prospective early morning swim and or snorkel.
