Head off for the day from Cairns on a 6.5-metre custom built fishing boat for some amazing fishing on the Great Barrier Reef. Your private charter group of maximum 6 people will enjoy fishing for those famous reds and other fighting fish the region is known for.

Heading off from Cairns Marlin Marina at 6.30am and returning at 3.00pm, your group of 5 fishermen/women are on their way to places with names like Oyster Reef and Stagg Patches (near Sudbury Reef) for a day of fishing to remember.

Your vessel `don't know` is a 6.5 metre Cairns Custom Craft `Northwind` that is powered by a 140 horsepower Suzuki 4-stroke outboard that gets you to where you need to be in good time. She is fitted with a fish finder, GPS and all safety equipment.

The maximum number of fishermen the boat can carry is 5 passengers and based on a total combined weight of 550 kilograms (Queensland law).

The boat goes fishing out on the Great Barrier Reef based on the winds being 15 knots and under. Should it be too rough and windy we could change your private charter fishing tour to explore some of the wild river systems of Cairns and southern Cairns for other types of popular table and fighting fish such as Barramundi, Queenfish, Trevally and more or move your fishing trip booking to another day if available.   

What will you expect to catch when fishing on the Great Barrier Reef?

Well, be prepared for some beautiful reds like the Coral Trout, Red Emperor, Fingermark, Spanish Mackerel which are a good fighting fish, Trevally, Nannygai and some of the real tough fighting fish such as Tuna and Sailfish.

The fishing tackle we use is:

  • Bottom fishing its Penn gear
  • Trolling is Shimano
  • Popper fishing for GT is Shimano
  • You are welcome to bring along your own tackle if you require 

Popper fishing on the Reef for Giant Trevally:

  • Up to 2 people maximum
  • All bait/tackle/poppers and lures supplied
  • Dates to be verified by fishing guide as well as tides and weather conditions


Catering For The Day

Fishing and being out on the Great Barrier Reef can make you very hungry so we provide morning and afternoon tea and a luncheon of cold meats and salads that you can combine to make a wrap sandwich of your own designer choice.

Any special dietary restrictions need to be addressed at the time of booking your private charter fishing boat.

You are welcome to bring along a few beverages of your own but they must not be in glass containers.
