The Great Barrier Reef is a fishing / spearing paradise and Cairns is the closest mainland port, meaning you’ll spend more time fishing and less time travelling, when you book one of our Cairns private fishing charters.
The Great Barrier Reef is made up of more than 2,000 individual reefs, stretching over 1,500km along Queensland’s eastern coastline.
It’s home to tropical islands, isolated sand cays, diverse mangrove systems and lots and lots and lots of fish! We’re talking Coral Trout, Red Emperor, Tuna, Mackerel, Trevally and much, much more.
The water is crystal clear and generally calm, being sheltered by the reef system. The weather is warm and sunny. The fishing can happen day or night, you’re only limited by your own energy.
We’ll pick the best Great Barrier Reef locations to maximize your catch and interests, pending the weather and conditions, on your Reel Deep Charters Cairns private fishing charter. Contact us today to discuss your wish list.
