Great so are we!Fishing aboard Marlin Queen is the ultimate game fishing experience in Rarotonga, Cook Islands. A successful blend of Rarotonga's best known and most trusted Captain (Junior) with a purpose built deep sea boat means a day out on the ocean doesn't get any better! We work extra hard to make sure your fishing trip is an unforgettable experience! Rain, hail or shine - we go fishing! If it's your dream to catch big fish, you will not find a more dedicated team to help you do it! As soon as you leave the Avatiu Harbour the water gets very deep, very quickly so no time is wasted in getting those lures into the water to find the "Big Ones". Sit back, relax and enjoy the spectacular view of the island in a safe and relaxed atmosphere - unless of course you are on our "early bird" trip which leaves at 6am (and it's still dark) to the FAD's to meet the Yellow Fin Tuna when they rise for feeding. The early bird catches the worm - and so do we! The fishing in Rarotonga is great all year round and our well equipped boat has everything you will need. Whether you're a novice or experienced angler your enjoyment is guaranteed. We provide refreshments, snacks, comprehensive safety equipment, flush toilet and use the latest Shimano fishing gear. Captain Junior is famous for making his own lures - guaranteed to attract the Big Ones! Shared and private charters are available and you can choose whether you want to fish for a 1/2 day or full day. Our minimum is one person and for larger groups (over 10) we will organise your own "inter-boat" fishing competition, loads of fun for the competitive at heart. Want the "Ultimate Fishing Holiday"? We specialise in complete fishing, accommodation and transport packages, tailor-made to suit your individual or group requirements. We have a great range of accommodation and transport options to suit your every need and budget, so sit back, relax and let us organise your dream fishing holiday. Don't wait until you arrive in Rarotonga to book your trip as demand is high - avoid disappointed, book your trip now! « less

This charter was highly recommended by the front desk staff at Muri Beachcomber where we were staying. My son didn't baulk at the 5.30am pickup and had a wonderful time, catching 3 yellow fin tuna and bringing some home for the BBQ. A great morning out for him, and the pickup at our accommodation was a bonus.

A must do when you're at Rarotonga! We were on the boat with mostly inexperienced anglers, so the crew had a hard day with us :-) Eventually we headed back to the wharf with three beautiful fishes. Especially for people like me this was an amazing experience... Reading the other reviews, I think the experienced anglers should organize their own... More

I have done heaps of Big Game Fishing all over the world and The Marlin Queen, skippered by Junior and crewed by Tom is definitely up there with the "best of the best". Junior and Tom have been fishing all their lives, probably every day, they are super passionate about catching fish, and having a bit of fun along the... More

Booked prior to departing Auckland, Di and Junior provided plenty of options for the days we were available to fish, 1/2 day or full day, private charter or individual mixed party charter. My 15yr old Daughter and I chose a half day (morning charter), mixed party. We were advised to check in on arrival in Raro to keep abreast of... More

Captain Junior took us out with Teoni as deckhand. Diane met us at the wharf and I found that we had six anglers on board, which is too many, and as it turned out only two anglers got to feel the fun of landing a fish. In five hours it is difficult to get a turn with that many anglers,... More

My husband went out twice with Marlin queen, tried to get out a 3 rd time but it was cancelled due to weather. He could not fault it at all and he said it was the best fishing charter he has ever been on. The first trip he went on was part of a shared charter, he was picked up... More

We organized a half day trip with Marlin Queen via their web site, Dianne and Junior were nothing but professional and extremely accommodating with our enquiries, As Dianne had advised, we made contact with her upon arrival in Rarotonga to discuss our upcoming charter. After a lovely stroll around the Saturday Market we meet up with her at the wharf.... More

My son and I enjoyed a half day trip with the Marlin Queen in May 2014. We had a great trip catching several Yellow Fin Tuna which were cleaned, filleted and graciously provided to us to enjoy back at our room. We actually froze some and took on to Aitutaki for our next week in the Cook Islands. The Captain... More

My friend & I did a 5 hour trip on the Marlin Queen on 27th June. I was disappointed in the trip. This was because all the settings of the lines & deployment of lures was undertaken by the staff on the boat. Even the Skipper was able to sort his own lines etc. Fish were bought in by two... More
