Experience six Magical days at the Montebello Islands ...

Living aboard our fully appointed houseboat, Full Monte using our charter boat, Kylin eco tour boat Nemo and dinghies for fishing and other activities.

During the summer months we return to Perth where we can help you celebrate your special occasion in style.


April - October (ex Exmouth)

Experience six nights and five magical days at the Montebello Islands living aboard our fully appointed houseboat and using our charter boat the ‘Kylin’, eco tour boat ‘Nemo’ and dinghies for activities.

The Montebello’s are comprised of over 100 islands which are surrounded by magnificent virgin coral reefs. The area’s panoramic seascapes, abundance of wildlife and wilderness feeling ensure that those who join us on one of our weekly safaris enjoy a unique experience. Everyone is invited to participate in activities such as fishing, diving, wildlife viewing, island exploration (The Montebello Islands also have a degree of notoriety as a result of British atomic weapons testing in the 1950s.) and surfing. Excellent recreational fishing opportunities exist in the reserves, with a variety of finfish and invertebrate species in abundance. Our boat the 'Kylin' takes you away from the islands out into the general use zones where a variety of fish can be caught.

More information on the Montebello Safaris


Montebello Island Safaris (from here on referred to as MIS) changed ownership in December 2006.

New owners Byron, Liz, Jim & Julie Bungey are passionate about this additional business venture. The owners currently run a mixed farming property in the south of the State, and taking on MIS has been seen as a very pleasurable adjunct to this. The marine lifestyle has always been a passion.

Byron, Liz, Jim & Julie and all of the Montebello staff are keen to offer customers a memorable experience. They take particular care to regularly survey customers on their MIS charters to ascertain how they can continually improve on the quality of experiences already offered their customers.

Improvements to facilities have already been made, and further improvements are continually happening.

All of the staff working in the business are there because they are passionate about what they are doing.

Our aim is for every customer to enjoy a memorable experience, whether it be on Safari at the Montebello islands, or on a charter in Perth.


Thank you to Montebello Island Safaris for an amazing trip!

Being a female and a fishing novice, I wasnít sure what to expect.

The crew made me feel comfortable and accommodated my special dietary requirements. Nothing was too much for them, which made our experience as memorable as possible. Special Thank you goes out to Brad, Dale & Leon.

The facilities on the house boat made me feel at home with the privacy of a cabin with 2 bunks for my partner and I. Great spacious house boat was a great balance to come home to every night after a day out on the Kylin, the dinghies or snorkeling.

Brad the skipper- Thank you for making the trip out there and back a safe and fun adventure. Was great to explore the Islands and the bomb sites.

Leon the cook- Thank you for checking in on me with every meal to make sure I had what I needed and looking after my special dietary requirements. Great food and you should be commended for the meals you produced every day. I really appreciate your conscious effort to ensure I was catered for.

Dale the deckie - Thank you for helping me retrieve the largest fish I have every caught! When every I needed you, there you were to assist me and making sure I didnít fall over board and bring the fish onboard.

Always happy to oblige and help whenever you could, making fishing a truly memorable experience.
