Here’s why you will love fishing with the Whitsunday Fishing Charters Half and Full Day Tours

Charters depart daily from Coral Sea Marina in custom built vessels designed for the tropical waters of the Whitsundays. Choose from a half or full day option both offering fast and comfortable rides through the best fishing grounds of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.

Half Day - Step aboard the Reel Deal, a 7.5m custom charter for a half day in the outer island area. Target fish such as Golden and Giant Trevally, Cobia, Mackerel, Coral Trout, and the delicious Sweet Lip plus many other varieties.

Full Day - The 12m Reef Adventurer will take you to the outer Great Barrier Reef for a full day of fishing. You can catch similar fish to the half day, such as the Coral Trout and Trevally species, however there are many more including Red Emperor, Spangled Emperor, Nannygai, and Spanish Mackerel. Both trips also come with the opportunity for your catch to be cooked fresh that day at FISH D’VINE the local fish and rum bar for the low cost of $8.50 - the perfect end to your day in the stunning Whitsunday Islands.
