FishDive Charters - Kaya 2

Shingley Drive
Airlie Beach QL, Australia

Fishing the warm, tropical waters around the beautiful Whitsunday Islands from Airlie Beach is an angler’s dream come true. Located in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, the stunning coastlines and clear seas make the perfect backdrop to catching some of the most interesting fish in the ocean. Unspoiled, isolate bays, tropical fringing reefs, sea grass beds and coastal island areas attract a large and diverse variety of fish species, which can be fished for using a variety of techniques.

FishDive Charters and Eco Tours have been operating in the area for twenty years. With plenty of experience of diving and sportfishing under their belt and a passion for providing a great service to people from all over the globe, they aim to provide you with the experience of a lifetime aboard one of their two agile centre console skiffs.

The company’s new 5 metre (16’) sportfisher Kaya 2 is the smaller of the two boats. Designed to mainly run the lure casting and popper fishing trips, the vessel can accommodate up to 4 anglers and is equipped with a shade canopy to protect guests from the sun, a built-in ice box and the best available rods and reels. Powered by a 60HP four stroke engine, the boat will take you where you need to go quickly and ecologically.

On a lure casting trip aboard Kaya 2 you will learn to properly cast lures using 9kg braided outfits and soft plastic through hard boiled lures. Species targeted include salt water Barramundi, Golden Trevally, Mangrove Jacks, Cobia, Flat Head and more. Otherwise, you can decide to focus on catching the incredible Giant Trevally, pound-to-pound one of the greatest fighting fish, using a variety of poppers.

All half day tours include morning/ afternoon tea and refreshments, while the full day tours also include a tropical lunch. A portable toilet is available on request, and if you want to have your catch cooked for you at the end of the day this can be arranged at the excellent ‘Fish D’vine’ restaurant on Airlie Beach.

Equipment old and brittle.  No live bait supplied.  Boat was booked for 4 people only and on the day there was 5 people plus captain on boat.  Dealings with owner of the boat were difficult.
