“Cancelled fishing charter.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Booked our fishing charter 2 mths. Got a call for the operator late the evening before, Charter cancelled due to weather for their type of boat. Was told we could possibly go on the next days charter, but there will be 5 people. Got a call again from the operator late the evening before the next charter and again cancelled due to the number of people. It was a shame as we came from Vic for a great experience. Next time we may make 2 bookings to cover our bases. Had we got a phone call earlier in the day we could have made other arrangements to go with someone else but it was too late. So please be weary when making a booking especially if travelling interstate because your may be cancelled at anytime due to numerous reasons. Have a back up plan.

I am sorry your fishing charter was cancelled due to weather conditions,
we do have a duty of care,we pride ourselves on making sure our customers have the best time on the water fishing,
this is why we only take 3 people on our boat sometimes 4 to the river,

“Not a memorable trip out”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

I have booked this guy twice over the years, the first time he was unable to take me out because the weather was to unpredictable for the size of his boat, the second time he claimed he had lacerated his hand whilst filleting a fish the day before my booked charter trip, I was informed by our coach driver that this is not the first time he had heard of these excuses used by this company

We are really sorry we had to cancel your trip due to WEATHER conditions previously , we don't like to cancel charters because we are a small family business and also we don't like to let people down.
For your second attempt at a fishing charter i would really question the bus driver ? to say that people use lacerated hands as an excuse, the day before your charter was a bit rough and Kerry was fixing a reel a wave hit the boat and put the knife straight thru his hand Kerry received 5 stiches and a week off work ,sorry for any inconvenience.

“Blown away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012 via mobile

Went out fishing with Kerry on my trip to cairns ,had planned on fishing out at the reef but 30 knot winds put a stop to that. We fished a local river system instead winds made it hard going . We caught our own bait and fished hard not much caught but still a great day out.Kerry provided a great lunch , he was a good guide and has a wonderful boat we also saw a croc on our travels topped off a good day
