About Marlin Queen Fishing Charters
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"?

I did a fishing charter with them few weeks ago and this experience really outperformed my expectations. We catched 5 beautiful yellow-fin tuna medium size and a big one about 60kg. Eveything from the organization to the return at the wharf has been perfect. I truly recommend this fishing charter, kind and experienced crew for an amazing fishing day. Thank you Ulisse

My son & husband paid $200 each with the expectation of casting a rod & with any luck catch a fish. They were out for nearly 5 hours, never got to touch a rod & no fish to be caught. The crew were good & did their best to find fish. Totally understand that there are days where no fish is caught but would of been good if they could if at least got to put a rod over the side. My son came home very disappointed.

Did the half day deep see fishing charter with 3 others. Whilst the boat wasn’t that comfortable, it was well equipped for fishing with a skilful captain. Caught 5 wahoo during the 5 hour trip, with a couple more that got away. All in all a good morning, worth the $200 NZD per person.

My two sons and their granddad had an excellent 1/2 day fishing with Nobby's crew. They got away promptly, told the boys it will be rough until they got around the other side of the island, and sure enough it was much more calm where they have picked to fish. The crew were informative and professional, helping the kids to haul in fish, when or if they needed it. They came back with 4 tuna. The crew then filleted and gave us a generous amount to feast on. The owner, Nobby was great with our kids (one who has special needs). They let him feed the local fish when back on shore (that was amazing to watch!) and was happy to take our fishing mad son, Fletcher, out another day if he was doing a shared charter and had a spare space. Thoroughly recommend Nobby and his team. We will certainly be back to see them!
