WELCOME TO MARLIN QUEEN FISHING CHARTERS!Serious about Big Game Fishing?...

WELCOME TO MARLIN QUEEN FISHING CHARTERS!Serious about Big Game Fishing? 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!

I was picked up early taken straight to the boat, boarded and off we went straight away, no mucking around with George and Brendon. My mornings fish was made just so easy with a great skipper George whom explains things well and a brilliant deck hand. We caught many great fish up to 40kg tuna that morning. I will be... More

First time game fishing for both of us, so it helped that they were so knowledgable and helpful. We thought it was great value for money and... More

Very well organised trip that my partner thoroughly enjoyed. The crew knew their stuff, had good gear and the boat handled the swells like a pro. He'll be booking again on our next trip!

I got given the Charter as a present and its probably one of the best gifts I have been given. It was an awesome day out fishing, very relaxed, but professional when we were on. The Skip (Brendon) was great ensuring everyone knew what to do no matter what your knowledge of game fishing was. He was more than happy... More
