Tropic Barra Adventures

Tropic Barra Adventures, is a premium Barramundi Sports Fishing Charter.

We work out of Cairns, Port Douglas, Daintree, Lake Tinaroo, and Mission Beach.

Being an outfitter charter we work around our guest’s needs and wants, meaning we do half-day, single-day, and multi-day extended fishing charters.

We offer Cairns’ best sports fishing in some of Australia’s most scenic, remote, and stunning river systems. October through to January we operate up at Lake Tinaroo targeting giant Barramundi.

We pick up our guests from their hotels, or from the airport, and provide all fishing gear and lunches on the vessel.

Looking forward to being your next guide and fishing with you,

Captain Brodie Quaas.

Gday guys captain Quaazie here, I’m a passionate fisherman loving everything from dry fly fishing for Brown Trout to chasing giant Black Marlin. But Barramundi are by far my favourite hard-hitting tight structure lure-destroying machines! Join the fun and jump on a charter for a ripping time today.
