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!

We arrived in Rarotonga on monday morning early (6/17/2013) and gave Diane a call about our trip scheduled for the next day. We arranged for them to pick us up since we had no other means of travel to the boat. Diane arrived bright and early (0530) and took us out to the dock where we met Junior and Paul. I chartered the bat so it was just my family going out on the Marlin Queen. Once we had our safety lecture, we were off looking for fish. We got out to the FAD and discovered that it had broken loose and was nowhere to be found (oh well thats why its called fishing and not catching) so we were off looking for fish again! About an hour into the trip, we had a major hook up and I brought in a 25kg Wahoo! Then it was off looking for more fish. Unfortunatly that was the only fish we were able to catch that day but what a fish! We took as much as 6 people could reasonable eat and were offered more if we wanted it later in the week (fresh catch). Even though we only caught one fish, the crew and Diane were terrific and I will definitly be going out with them again next time we are out there!
