Aquis Fishing Charters

Aquis Fishing Charters is a very family friendly charter service that offers fun and individual reef fishing adventures around Port Douglas, Queensland. This small charter business offers years of experience and a relaxed yet professional attitude to make fishing and snorkeling trips that their customers want to participate in time and again.

With Skipper Blake Alexander at the helm, Aquis Fishing Charters run reef fishing trips aboard a 30’ Seatamer boat that gives a comfortable ride for up to seven people. Powered by a Cummins engine to get you to the fish fast, this boat has everything you need for your reef fishing adventure, including a GPS, fishfinder, and outriggers. It also offers convenient protection from the elements, and there is a toilet, kitchen, and shower inside the boat.

During your trip, you will be fishing for a range of species, such as the stunning and delicious Coral Trout, huge Mackerel, Cobia, Snappers, Giant Trevally, and maybe even a Black Marlin. Choose what you would most like to target, and Blake will pull out all the stops to help you achieve your dreams, as long as the fish is in season. Whether you want to troll or bottom fish, to try jigging or popping, to fish with light tackle, or even to try spearfishing or handline fishing, Aquis Fishing Charters will be able to meet your requirements.

Snorkeling equipment is also included in the price to add an extra dimension to your adventure on the reef. Design your perfect day!
