Cairns Reef Fishing

Cairns Reef Fishing is a family owned and operated business with over 20 years experience in fishing in Cairns waters. They know where the fish are and they make sure everyone on board has a great and fun time at the Great Barrier Reef.

They have 2 vessels, Aqua Cat and Blue Whaler, both of them are large, comfortable and fully equipped for deep fishing. The vessels can take up to 20 passengers but to improve the capacity of each passenger to catch a fish they have reduced the maximum numbers to 11 people on Blue Whaler and 14 people on Aqua Cat.

Cairns is known internationally as one of the best areas for fishing in the world. The Skipper and Deck Hand are quite experienced and they are ready to help and assist anyone that needs a hand with fishing methods and technique.

Passengers don't have to worry about bringing anything on board as everything is provided by the tour operator including all fishing equipment and also drinks and meals. They give all passengers on board a bottle of water and a delicious lunch with selected meats, salads, bread rolls and fresh fruit.
