The Great Barrier Reef and it’s close proximity to the coast is why Cairns has become one of the world’s greatest fishing destinations. So why choose Cairns Fishing Adventures? Because they are serious fishermen. They are not the charter that finds the closest location with an overcrowded boat and waits until your fishing time is up - they do whatever it takes to catch fish!
Their purpose built sportfishing boat has raised casting platform, twin-engine and forward trolling motor. She also boasts the latest electronics with GPS, Echo sounder, down imaging, and side scanning. She is licensed to carry 7 people but Capt. Carlo limits the trips to 4 passengers, which equates to more fishing action per angler.
The species you’ll target vary depending on where you choose to fish, but can include Mackerel, Red Emperor, Nannygai, Cobia, Giant Trevally, Tuna, Coral Trout, Jobfish, Barramundi, Threadfin Salmon, and many more. The captain will let you know which fish can be kept and which should be returned.
Capt. Carlo offers a range of trips to cover everyone. There are shared trips for people traveling alone, as well as private trips for your family or friends.
Included in the price of the trip are top quality rods and reels from Shimano. These won’t let you down when reeling in your next trophy catch. Live bait is also used and included in the price. This can be caught before the trip, or the captain will cast a net for it during the trip. It won’t take long but can be a fun experience for the kids. Your fishing license is provided, too.
You’ll need to bring your own food and drinks along. Don’t forget your sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat. Wear light layers of clothing and deck shoes and you’re good to go.
The only thing left to do is book a trip with Cairns Fishing Adventures today. Capt. Carlo is looking forward to welcoming you on board and making some awesome memories together.
