A-One Fishing Charters welcomes you to the sparkling azure waters of Airlie Beach, Queensland! With more than 70 islands scattered throughout the Whitsundays, anglers can choose from a variety of fish and fishing techniques. Troll for big game or bottom fish for colorful surprises!

Step aboard a 29’ Young Craft boat, built in 2000 and powered by twin 150 HP Mercury engines. The boat is ready when you are, equipped with a fishing license, rods, reels, tackle, and live bait. There’s even a toilet on board to maximize your comfort.

All you have to do now is choose your adventure! Try bottom fishing for Coral Trout and Snappers, or fishing the flats for Queenfish and Emperors.
