Exceed Sportfishing Port Douglas - River, Estuary and Coastal

Our 25ft Haines Hunter centre console vessel offers river & coastal reef charters for half, 3/4 and full day charters.

Personally guided by our experienced skipper with 10 years experience on local waters you are well and truly on your way to having a wonderful fishing experience. The service, equipment and your want of a great fishing experience is at a premium.

Actual sportfishing is this boat’s speciality using a variety of techniques including jigging, surface lures, poppers, trolling and also bottom fishing. Target species along the coast  include coral trout, red emperor, nannygai, trevally species to name just a few. In the rivers the tenacious mangrove jack are our bread and butter, we simply have the best reputation. This is alongside the barramundi, grunter javelin fish, fingermark, trevally, mud crab and host of others. Upon application we can offer night tours, croc spotting, mud crabbing or any tailor made trip.

The boat has twin 220hp Yamaha 4 stroke engines so it moves at around 30 knots reaching destinations in short time if required. The hull design offers a really comfortable ride on the water and being a centre console it has a full walk around deck custom made for sportfishing. The boat has all the latest Penn fishing gear onboard and the size of the vessel offers a lot of room and comfort for small personal groups – ideal for families as well. The vessel is equipped with the latest technology including a state of the art Simrad fish finder/ plotter which finds the fish even whilst travelling at speed. It does have a private marine toilet. It is a lot of boat for a great rate.
