Great day, awesome price

We hired the boat for two people paying the great price of $199. We cruised along the whole river, which takes almost 2 1/2 and did around 4 or 5 stops for fishing. After all we caught one legal snapper, one legal bream as well as a couple of small fish. It's also possible to fish at the place where the commercial fishing charter fish, so you can save a lot of money in comparison to their offers.

Highly recommended

awesome pontoon, kept well cleaned. Very spacious for 7 100kg+ men. Aaron was very welcoming and took good care of us, phoned us to notify of incoming storm. Didnt have to pay for unopened bait, great business. Highly recommended. Will definitely be using again very soon only this time on the big Pontoon. Cheers Aaron and the team.

Great Experience

Had lots of fun and excitement being on the a boat esp. on your own the first time. Just follow the guidelines and local regulation, all was fun and safe, so long you are responsible and have safety in mind. Richard was friendly and helpful on getting you up to speed on what need to know and your possible needs if you are unprepared like me. Had an enjoyable great fun half day cos water rafting awaits in the afternoon. (Reluctant to stop though)

brilliant :)

despite being out in the blazing sun in the hot season, the breeze from the inlet worked some magic. the convienience of being able to ask for a bbq, esky, spare fishing rod, bait & ice meant we just had to bring our own food and water for the day. we had a barbie on the inlet while catching and releasing grunters and it was a fantastic, independent day out due to not needing a boat license to drive around. very much recommended!

Perfect day fishing the Inlet

Plenty of room and surprisingly comfortable pontoon that made the perfect fishing day for us. Cruising the inlet at an ideal pace and able to stop and view the wildlife whenever you choose. We opted for the fishing rod and tackle package that was amazing value and already rigged up to start fishing within ten minutes of navigating the marina. If you are lucky and get the correct time of day then the fish will bite a plenty. Very easy to drive, without a licence and extremely well introduced by the manager. We will be back next time we visit Cairns, for sure.
