Noosa Charters – Wild Thing 2

Noosa Charters offers trips of various lengths out among the many reefs off Noosa, Queensland. Head out from the so-called "Sunshine Coast" and discover a paradise of beautiful beaches and bountiful seas, with a huge selection of species to target.

You’ll be fishing from the "Wild Thing 2", a 33’ Cougar Cat catamaran with room aboard for 12 anglers. Powered by twin 300 HP Yamaha engines, and boasting an ultra-stable twin-hull design, she offers both speed and stability. She comes equipped with GPS and fishfinder to track down the best catch, and also boasts outriggers, a head for extra convenience on those longer trips, and everything you need for your day on the water.

Head to the deep waters offshore and the productive coral reefs, as you go after the catch of a lifetime. The crew will make sure you are properly set up for whatever style of fishing you go for – be it trolling the reef for some great Snapper, Perch, and Trag Jew, or heading further out to target Mahi Mahi or Tuna.

All trips come with drinks and lunch provided, so you’ll be full of energy throughout your trip. Settle in for a fishing trip like never before, as you discover the rich waters of the Pacific Ocean and get your hands on some prized fish.

You really can’t ask for more than a great day in some beautiful waters catching some truly awesome fish. Climb aboard with Noosa Charters for a trip you’ll never forget!
