Black Label is a stunning 40FT Game Fisher operating out of Cairns Australia for both light tackle juvenile Black Marlin and Sailfish and heavy tackle for 1000lbs+ giant Black Marlin. During the year we also offer reef fishing charters as well as jigging and popper fishing on the remote areas of the Great Barrier Reef.

Mark has been in the guiding and charter industry for 25 years now and has a great fishing background from his father. His fishing sense involves everything from Barramundi right up to heavy tackle Black Marlin on the Great Barrier Reef. He owns a custom-built 8.1 metre plate boat as well as a stunning 40ft Black Watch sportfisher, ‘The Black Label’, running out of Cairns.

Our fishing charters range from a one-day light tackle trip to a 3-to-10 day liveaboard and mothership reef charters, and Giant Black Marlin excursions. Black Label is available for all tournaments in and out of Cairns. These and other packages are highly customizable and prone to modifications due to personal preference, so let Mark and Steff organise your ultimate trip to the best light and heavy tackle fishing in Australia, if not the world.

About the Company

Mark (Parko) Parkinson
Cairns, Queensland, Australia
Member since December 2014
I have been passionate about angling since i was able to hold a fishing rod and target everything from Bass to Billfish.I moved to the Northern Territory late teens and started my guiding career for another operator learning what we call the old school way of running a charter company and learning people skills and learning better fishing techniques.I started up my own charter company and made a good name and reputation in the Top End.After 25 years of guiding guests to monster barramundi to Sailfish and Black Marlin my Partner and i decided to sell up in the NT and move to Cairns to pursue a new venture with our game boat Black Label and our transition has been good one targeting light tackle Marlin and then putting clients onto Grander Black Marlin of the Great Barrier reef.I have a great crew on board and still learning as we do in the art of Game fishing.
