Port Douglas River, Estuary and Coastal Fishing

This is a coastal, calm water experience in boats up to 8m designed for sportfishing on our local inlets, creeks, rivers and inshore reefs.

Half day and full day trips are offered and night trips available on request.

On the protected waters of the mangrove systems our guides often catch live bait and target species such as barramundi, queenfish, mangrove jack & trevally in the rivers & creeks. Specialised lure & fly trips are available by private charter. Sole charter trips can also include requested croc spotting, mud crabbing, bird watching and photography.

Coastal trips, weather providing can take you to our very productive inshore reefs, wrecks and very unique wonky holes (complex underwater rainforest river systems that release its water along the coast from the Daintree World Heritage Rainforest). Here you tangle with some bigger species including thumping nannygai, mackerel, coral trout, gold spot cod, cobia, trevally species and fingermark. Popper, jigging & soft plastic fishing available on private charters.

It is ideal for families, first time anglers and also the ultimate keen fisho. We are blessed to have a range of great fishing within a short distance from the moment of you stepping onboard our boats.
