A Private Charter aboard our vessels’ is a great idea for corporate functions, birthdays, parties or anytime you want to get a group of friends, family or colleagues together to enjoy fishing and/or snorkelling amongst the wonderous surrounding of the Great Barrier Reef. Private Charter options give you exclusive use of vessel, allows for flexible departure times and itineraries.
Out at the reef we will be targeting Coral Trout, Red Emperor, Large and Small Mouth Nannygai, Sweet Lip, Cod, Trevally, GT’s and many other reef species. We will be generally fishing on the bottom or close to it and usually in 30 – 60 meters depth. We will also put out some surface baits targeting Mackeral or Cobia. Be warned that we expect to land fish up to 10kg or bigger so hang on!
We can also prepare your freshly caught Reef Fish BBQ style for you to try! (Cooking of fish is dependent on ideal weather conditions). On a BBQ, fish and snorkel day, we would normally do some fishing first up in the morning and then head over to one of the sand cay areas for everyone to hop into the water. Whilst you are in the water we prepare the BBQ and cook up some fish from the morning to have with lunch. After lunch you will have the option of moving to another snorkel location or have another fish before heading back into Cairns.
