Port Douglas Sportfishing offers a variety of trips to choose from. Their half day shared trip will see you fishing inshore or estuary waters. If you want to combine a fun day out on the waters and make new friends, this one is just what you need. If you want to share this experience with your friends and family, the private trip will be the best for you. Full day fishing trips will take you to estuary waters, inshore, or at the Outer Reef.

Go for Barramundi, Giant Trevally, Mangrove Jack when fishing the rivers, or target Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, Queenfish, Golden Trevally, Large Mouth Nannygai, Coral Trout, Longtail Tuna, and many more during your offshore, coastal, and reef adventures.
