What to Expect
Travel reference:

Head out for an action-packed day of fishing with Cairns Reef Fishing in the surrounding waters of the Great Barrier Reef!

Departing in the early morning from Cairns, you will head to the outer reef on a comfortable, purpose built and fully equipped vessel. You may fish anywhere in a 25 nautical mile radius from Cairns depending on where the fish are biting, tide and weather conditions. The fishing vessel is fitted with the latest electronics, safety and fish finding equipment, undercover decking area, seating for all and full-size toilet facilities. A fully inclusive experience, you only need to bring your personal items, a delicious fresh lunch, snacks and refreshments are provided for your energy boost; and all charters permit BYO alcohol if you choose.

On board, the friendly and professional crew will show you the best techniques for catching making the trip suitable for beginners through to expert anglers. The waters are internationally renowned as some of the most prolific fishing grounds in the world, so get set for some of the best fishing ever! You'll have the chance to catch and bring home Coral Trout, large and small Mouth Nannygai, Red Emperor, Spanish Mackerel, Trevally and more. The crew will even clean and ice your fish and bag them up for you so you can return home with your 'catch of the day'.

If you wish to have an exclusive fishing and snorkelling experience with your family or friends, book the Private Charter. It gives you exclusive use of the vessel, allows for flexible departure times and pick-up services from Fitzroy Island or Green Island.
