Estuary & River Fishing

Join a shared charter or have your own private charter fishing tour in Cairns & Port Douglas

Estuary & River Fishing

With estuary fishing you can spend a half day or a full day exploring all the sink holes, mangroves and secret hiding places looking for that highly prized Barramundi, Grunter or Trevally and by booking a guided fishing tour you can be taken directly to the known hideouts of these fish and not be sitting and wasting time. Most of the estuary and river fishing boats have basic toilet facilities and offer a cup of tea or coffee for your afternoon or morning fishing tour. Estuary fishing is a great half day activity for you and the kids or you and your mates.

Blue Water Fly Fishing

The ultimate in reef fishing is Blue Water Fly fishing - Shared or sole charters Great Barrier Reef Australia

Blue Water Fly Fishing

Blue water fly fishing sounds like a kids game but it is far from being a child’s game as you are tangling with a very powerful Sailfish or Billfish on the end of your flimsy fishing pole as they shoot downwards to the depths of the ocean and take you for a ride for a few hours. You will be strapped into your chair and begin the fight between you and that big fish on the end of your fishing rod. You can chase these big fish on charter boats from both Cairns and Port Douglas but you will need to be prepared to book your berth in advance.
