FishDive Charters – Kaya 1

Fishing the warm, tropical waters around the beautiful Whitsunday Islands from Airlie Beach is an angler’s dream come true. Join FishDive Charters to make yours come true! With over two decades of experience, the crew will make sure you have fun while reeling in some trophy fish.

You’ll enjoy your day on Kaya 1 – a 20’ center console boat built for comfort. With a helpful shady canopy, built-in icebox, and a live bait tank Kaya 1 was designed to offer a comfortable ride. Catering for up to 6 guests and powered by a 90 HP four-stroke motor, the vessel is mostly used for live bait and offshore tours.

The crew will provide you with quality Shimano equipment, as well as a range of artificial lures, so you’ll get straight to fishing. If you’re up for making a delicious meal upon your return, they’ll be happy to clean and fillet your catch for you to take home. You can also have it cooked at the excellent Fish D’vine restaurant on Airlie Beach.

Depending on the trip you chose, you can expect to target various species using a range of techniques. Target Barramundi, Queenfish, Trevally, Mangrove Jack, Cobia, and more using live bait or lures, or troll for Sailfish, Spanish Mackerel, Northern Bluefin Tuna, and the Juvenile Black Marlin.

Take your whole family out on a fishing adventure, as children are welcome on board. Spend some quality family time and make this a trip they’ll never forget. All half day tours include tea and refreshments, while the full day tours include a tropical lunch as well.

Explore some of the bluest waters around Whitsunday Islands with FishDive Charters and have a fishing trip of a lifetime!
