Black Magic 40ft Game Boat

If you’re going to cast a line in Port Douglas, look no further than Black Magic. The professional guides are experts across all modern sportfishing techniques, from popping and jigging to trolling and soft plastics to saltwater fly.

These waters are known for Coral Trout, Giant Trevally, Spanish Mackerel, Red Emperor Snapper, Tuna, Barramundi, Mangrove Snapper, Threadfin Salmon, Black Jewfish, Mahi Mahi, and more. On these trips, it’s common to troll and bottom fish using light tackle. Whether your passion is popping, jigging, trolling, fly, or reef fishing, Black Magic has it covered.

Come aboard the "Black Magic," a 40’ Offshore game boat that can carry up to 6 guests. Black Magic is fully equipped with state-of-the-art fishing tackle, from custom-built rods to the best in Shimano reels. It comes with outriggers, and all the essentials no fishing machine can run without. There’s a toilet on board. Kids are welcome.

A First Mate will be there to make sure everything is running smoothly. There’s no need to buy a fishing license, just show up ready for some fishing! Be mindful that some species may have special rules or limited seasons. Your captain will help you follow regulations while you fish.

Any fish within the legal limit is yours to keep. Plus, you can have your catch cleaned. Now that’s dinner! It’s always wise to bring sunblock (non-spray), and sunglasses. Drinks, snacks and lunch are included, free of charge. Black Magic is fully licensed with a selection of wine and beer available.
