Overview

We are the Sportfishing Specialists. We know the where, when, why and how of sportfishing. But what is it exactly that we do? We hunt the biggest meanest fish in the Coral Sea by casting surface lures, jigging and light tackle trolling. We take you to destinations where few have the capacity to venture and the fish are big and bold. Most importantly we provide you with the knowledge required to hook, fight and land those bucket list fish. “We do the miles so you get the smiles” is a slogan we have embraced. We definitely do the miles on our “Escape Day Trips” on the Great Barrier Reef; we travel that little bit further than the rest getting away from major population centers in order to get you bending on as many big fish as possible. This slogan reflects our service as well; our staff will go that little bit further to create the adventure of a lifetime for you.

Had a great trip with the boys. Harry knew his stuff and we caught a few decent sized GTs. He went above and beyond to ensure we all had the best opportunity to catch something. Would definitely use him again on our next fishing trip.
