Cairns Reef Fishing
One of our top picks in Cairns. Cairns Reef Fishing is the longest established reef fishing company in Cairns and the only charter in the area permitted to fish the local waters all year round. They are friendly and warm to every guest who comes aboard their boat and will make sure you will have an unforgettable fishing experience in the crystal clear waters of the Great Barrier Reef. The crew is comprised of complete fish lovers including an ex Australian Navy guy, a super-yacht captain and all-round fishing enthusiasts with extensive marine knowledge and experience.
They have 2 boats: Aqua Cat and The Blue Whaler. Aqua Cat is a 50 feel long Randell fibreglass cruiser, which is powered by two 315 HP Cummins engines with a maximum cruising speed of 18 knots. This magnificent boat has a GPS and a fishfinder with over 2000 fishing spots marked on their GPS system which are sure to deliver. The boat has a full-size toilet onboard which is essential when taking family trips with children. It also comes equipped with life jackets. The second boat is a little smaller, carrying up to 13 anglers. It is called The Blue Whaler, and the captain decides which boat is being taken out depending on the number of guests booked for the shared trip and other factors.
The Cairns Reef Fishing crew is so familiar with the fish species in the area, they will be able to educate you and help you catch some of the best specimens in the 25-mile radius of Cairns. The species caught are various Trevallies, Coral Trout, Spanish Mackerel, Nannygai and Barracudas among others. You will be provided with live bait and lures, rods, reels, and tackle, fishing licences, and best of all you have a buffet lunch of cold meats, bread rolls, salads and cold drinks. A filleting service is available for a small extra fee.

A tough days fishing in 25kph winds. But we still had a great time. It was my wife’s first charter and she’s not a fisher person but she had fun and caught a Red Emperor and a Remora Shark. I caught 5 fish but none big enough to keep. The captain tried his best with probably 8-10 different locations tried but the fish just wouldn’t cooperate with only 4-5 keepers landed for the day. There were also sharks around which made it interesting. I would still recommend this trip however as it was a great days outing and an experience worth the money.
