What You'll Do
  • Fish for different species of tuna close to the coast of Cairns
  • Enjoy a safe, comfortable fishing charter with complimentary lunch
  • Sail the wrecks of the Cairns Inlet looking for cobia and large mouth nannygai
  • Jig for Spanish mackerel and golden trevally
Fish the stunning Bluewater Reef, just a short distance from Cairns, on an 8.5-hour adventure fishing tour. Climb aboard the 20-foot “Don’t Know” and sail in search of yellow fin tuna, Spanish mackerel, coral trout, large mouth nannygai, and more.
What to Expect
Set sail on a full-day fishing excursion from Cairns in the company of a captain with more than a decade of experience and an extensive knowledge of the area’s fish species.

The charter for 3-4 people on board the 20-foot (6.3-meter) “Don`t Know” can be tailored around your needs and wants. The boat is custom-fitted for maximum comfort and space, and powered by an efficient 4-stroke Yamaha 115hp engine to get you to your fishing locations fast and safe. Top quality rods and reels, all bait and tackle, jigs, lure, and poppers are provided, but you are also welcome to bring your own fishing gear. On board you will find bottles of water and complimentary tea and coffee, as well as a lunch served during the day.

Targeting fish species in the inshore reefs, you will discover wrecks and islands as you troll and fish with surface lures. Look for the many different tuna species, including yellow fin tuna, and fish for cobia and large mouth nannygai among the wrecks. Jig for Spanish mackerel and golden trevally, and fish the headlands for fingermark.

Search the harbor leads, fishing for school and doggie mackerel, bottom bounce for red emperor and coral trout, and fish the reef closer inshore for spangled emperor. Your captain will sail you back to the harbor at approximately 15:00, dropping you off at Marlin Marina in front of the Pier Shopping Centre and Shangri-La Hotel.
