This was, hands down, the highlight of our holiday. Despite a few early showers (and someone slipping a banana on board), we managed to pull in a variety of big fish and had an absolute blast doing it. The guys were helpful, totally hilarious and knowledgeable. Lunch was awesome, the guys were brilliant and the fishing was spot on. We'll... More

Would like to thank Dan and Deano for an incredible day of fishing I had with my dad last week. Heaps of fish were caught ranging from Red and spangled emperor to Nannygai and coral trout, everyone on board went home with a bag of beautiful eating fish. The crew looked after us with a yummy lunch and fresh sashimi... More

Bugger!! Unfortunately, the sharks like to play a little 'dirty' sometimes.... 'We hook em, they eat em'... Very frustrating for all involved... Especially old Skip! Thank you for taking the time to review Cairns Reef Fishing, hope to see you again one day soon. :) More

10 points for your creative heading!!!! This time of the year most defiantly plays host to a little more wet weather... But, you haven't really experienced 'Topical North Queensland' until its been raining...Especially Raining FISH :-) It makes for an even better experience when you can leave with a little more knowledge then when you came, and its great to...
