If you’re in need of some ‘Reel Therapy’, locally owned and operated Out n About Sportfishing offers the opportunity to get out on the water and enjoy the region’s beautiful surroundings while wetting a line. Their experienced guides offer personalised service with a maximum of only 6 guests per boat.
Affordable half day shared charters run from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily. The crew also offers private charters for full or half day fishing experiences.
The Out N About crew works hard to ensure you have a great time out on the water. With Port Douglas being such a versatile fishing region with so many choices of fishing grounds, they can adapt to the conditions and very rarely need to cancel charters due to unfavourable weather.
Be it fishing the outer reefs on a full day charger, fishing the inshore reefs on a half day, or spending some time in the estuary and the river mouths, they can cater a charter to suit you.
Fishing on the fringing coastal reefs you’ll get to target the famed Coral Trout, Nannygai, and pelagic fish, such as Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, Queenfish, and Trevally. If it is too windy for the reef, you’ll be fishing in the Port Douglas estuary and river systems targeting Mangrove Jack, Fingermark, Bream, Tarpon, and even the elusive Barramundi.
Your captain will provide your quality fishing equipment and live and locally sourced dead bait. There’s also complimentary water and soft drinks on the boat but feel free to bring your own drinks and snacks.
Out N About Sportfishing gives everyone a chance to get out on the water and enjoy the scenic nature while pulling in a line. The trips are family friendly and suitable for both novices and experienced anglers.
All tours depart from the public pontoon on Ashford Avenue behind St Mary’s church in Port Douglas.
