Cairns Estuary Fishing Tours
Cairns Estuary Fishing Tours
Half day or full day fishing tours on the Trinity Inlet are extremely popular Cairns fishing options. Fishing in the Cairns Inlet ensures you will be well well protected by the extensive mangrove system, so even if the wind comes up you will have a calm days fishing. There are small numbers on John's 7.5 m vessel so you have lots of room to fish and mingle. You also have a good chance of spotting crocodiles... so keep your eyes peeled out for them on the riverbanks and near the boat. Cairns Trinity Inlet is surrounded by beautiful rainforest mountains - a stunning backdrop for a great day fishing.

Half day and full day estuary fishing tours in the Cairns Trinity Inlet
Choose a morning fishing tour (fishing is always better in the morning) starting at 7:30am from B finger wharf in Cairns and fish till about lunch time, 12:00noon.
For the keen fishermen out there why not book a full day fishing experience: 7:30am to 12:00noon then 12:30pm to 5:00pm.More fishing time means more fish to bring back to your resort for dinner that night.
The fishing boat is a 7.5 metre custom build boat that has an on board toilet and it is powered by a 130 horse power Honda four stroke engine.
There is a large covered roof area to protect you from the overhead sun and any other inclement weather.
The boat is perfect for the parents to take their children out for their first taste of fishing or for the family of anglers that like to throw a line in every destination they have a holiday.
Once everyone is on board you are introduced to each other and then the fun begins.
Your fishing guide throws a cast net catching live bait just off the Marlin Marina namely herring, prawns and mullet and this is then quickly placed in the live bait tank for the days use.
Then you will venture down the Trinity inlet to catch Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, Queen Fish, Trevally, Salmon and many more hard fighting tropical species.
There are shipwrecks along the way in which you will drop a line as the many varieties of fish do like these areas as their habitats.
Dependant on your success and the size of your catch it can be released after a photo or we are happy to clean and ice it on board so you can introduce it to the BBQ that evening or maybe even ask your resort chef to prepare it for you.
All charters include quality tackle and bait and for a small cost you can purchase a nice cold soft drink or water from John, your friendly skipper or one of his associates.
There is a nice big esky with lots of ice on board so if you wish you bring along a few beers (in cans) and your fishing guide can play butler!
When fishing in a new destination shared charters are a great way to meet other anglers from around the world all after a common goal. You can sit there for hours on end exchanging fishing stories and talk about your intended travel plans in Cairns and Tropical North Queensland.
The owner of this boat has an excellent record in the fishing and tourism services industry in Cairns and can always be relied upon to supply a good days adventure out on the water fishing in all the right places
What Will You Catch

Excellent operation, from the greet and meet, throughout the entire charter. The Captain was very pleasant and helpful. Introduced everyone on the Boat, and did all the re-baiting.
Moved positions depending on what was happening.
A very good tour operater.
