“B oth trips cancelled due to wind - one at 6.40 pm tjhe night beofre despite the forecast being bad for days”

Dragon Lady Fishing Tours
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Didn't actually get to go out but a friend recommended them and said they provided a great day out. The trips got cancelled due to bad weather which is fine but late notice when on holidays when the forecast had been bad for days was unfortunate when you want to play other activities. They need to do communication better. The counter at our resort did say when we were talking about fishing that this was the windiest time of the year here so those wanting offshore fishing need to bear that in mind.

Full day on DragonLady, good fishing (lots caught), well organised and good equipment. Steve (skipper) took us to several sites and we caught fish at them all.

Had a great time on this charter! I found all of the staff very helpful and friendly. Also went on two other charters in Port Douglas 2 years ago, and found Dragon Lady the best!
Rods and tackle all of excellent quality.
Boat comfortable.
Lunch was really delicious- best wraps I have ever eaten.
Would go with Dragon Lady again.

A tip to Dragon Lady and other travellers- ask the staff to descale your fish- as trying to do this in a hotel with limited equipment proved really annoying and difficult.

We booked a fishing trip to the outer reef for my Dad and son as a Christmas present. The trip was a disappointment. It was poorly run and not particularly friendly. The staff seemed to think that it was a bit of a chore to run the tour and could not wait to get back for "beer O'clock". The staff were unhelpful and impatient with my 17 year old son who was not an experienced fisherman. He lost fish he caught as he didn't know how to land them but was not given any helpful instruction and was criticised for doing the wrong thing. People were allocated a spot on the boat and then fished from there for the day - this meant that the best spots at the back of the boat were not shared by all. Would definitely recommend you try someone else.
