Airlie Beach Fishing Charters

Airlie Beach Fishing Charters sets the standard when it comes to fishing in the Whitsundays. Based out of beautiful Airlie Beach, the gateway to the Whitsunday Islands, they have access to some of the best fishing spots to be had on the east coast of Australia.

You’ll head on his 35’ Vision Craft aluminium fishing boat, accommodating up to 9 guests. The boat is powered by twin Mercruiser 300 HP engines, getting you to the best fishing spots in the blink of an eye. There’s a toilet on board for your convenience, as well as an icebox and a multimedia system.

Skipper Jason offers several types of fishing charters, so you’re sure to find the trip that suits you. The half day trips are very popular and you will be surprised how many fish you can catch in that time. Full day fishing trips include lunch, and you’ll cover a lot of ground moving to the best spots throughout the Islands.

The skipper can also introduce you to the most extreme surface lure fishing, mainly targeting the mighty GT. With this charter, you’ll head to the outer reefs for some explosive action using a variety of surface lures (poppers and stick baits), being cast from the Dance Floor – a unique elevated platform letting you see and cast further than ever before. This is setting the standard for sportfishing in the Whitsundays.

The fishing tackle provided on Airlie Beach Fishing Charters is top-notch. They use and are sponsored by Zeikel Australia and Shimano Australia. Having a 5-star rating from their customers is no accident as they strive to provide the best fishing experience they can.

Explore the prolific waters off the coast of Queensland with Airlie Beach Fishing Charters and get ready to have an unforgettable time!

My favorite species is Coral Trout, but we have so many species here—1500 different types to be exact—its hard to single out one. I love interaction with passengers and enjoy the pleasure people get when they catch a big fish!
