A-One Fishing Charters

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. If it’s the drama of a chase you love, enjoy trolling offshore for Giant Trevalleys, Mahi Mahi, and Black Marlin, among others. You keep your catch, and Captain Oliver Galea will clean and fillet it for you.

A-One Fishing Charters includes courtesy pick-up from local destinations, soft drinks, snacks, and the option to have a BBQ meal right on board! Bring your own beer, or receive one complimentary drink when you book a sunset cruise.

Last but not least, bring your smile and a camera because you’re sure to make some memories!
