Owner description: 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!

From pick up to the return to the hotel the trip was a great adventure. Starting early am my ride, Junior, was waiting to transport me to the boat. Lines were in the water pretty much as we set off. Brendan did a great job all morning as well as being good company. As ever, a fishing trip always seems... More

What a great day out on the water. There was a pretty big swell coming in, but we all felt super safe under the wing of Tom and Brendon. You can instantly tell that these two are at home out a sea. We spent the afternooon out on the boat and ended up catching a fish each - there were... More

The weather wasn't favourable but we are all used to rough seas and on this day we got just that! The crew were fantastic and looked after us with lunch and cold water available right through. Only thing we didn't like was lack of fish. One mahi mahi and two small tuna but a good couple of meals anyway.

During our recent holiday in Rarotonga we decided to try our hand at deep sea fishing. A couple of our group spent a few days “checking out” the various fishing charters that operate out of the Harbour in Rarotonga, basicly to who was catching what. After a week of deliberation we decided on Marlin Queen Fishing Charters. We originally booked... More

I took a fishing charter with my husband on our honeymoon and could not have been more pleased with the experience. We had signed up at the local Saturday market and unfortunately the tour had been overbooked. The owner however went out of her way to make sure we got out on a boat that day, which was great since... More

I booked about 3 weeks prior to our trip, as we were a large group (7) we had the boat to ourselves. Email corro with Dianne was prompt and efficient. Ended up bumping into her in our hotel foyer, she is so lovely and friendly! Can't do enough to help you! Our Captain Brendan and deckhand JJ were very professional... More
