“Barrier Reef snorkeling”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

Wow and Wow!
My wife, myself and our 4 kids spent a month in Australia this Nov/Dec 2013 and this trip with Jason was without a doubt the high-light of our vacation.
Jason was an awesome tour guide and his partner Bec makes an awesome lunch!
You 2 are an example of how to make a vacation in a beautiful country like Australia totally worthwhile and having 4 kids wanting to return!
Thank you so much,
Sam, Tracy, Sydney, Sophie, Jake and Izzy

We'd love to see you all again someday...may 2014 bring you all the best of everything.
Take care of each other, and keep boogaloo-ing Izzy! You ROCK!

“Fish for Boxing day”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

Excellent fishing and touring around magnificent Family Islands off Mission Beach on Boxing Day. Professional, friendly and comfortable morning aboard Brahminy with plenty of good biting fish some of which were keepers. Great opportunity for the novice and the more experienced fishers to experience the beautiful tropical waters of FNQ. Many thanks to hosts Bec and Jason.

Thank you Stephen - you are more than welcome! Glad to hear you went home with some tasty keepers too. The weather 'played the game' that day, which is always half the battle as you know...
We look forward to getting you both out on the water again someday soon.
Cheers for now

“Damaged boat transport from mangrove creek- 100% perfect job!”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

I am a boat owner, and recently a trawler dragged anchor and collided with my 30ft alloy boat, causing some damage. Following the accident, the boat had been moored up a narrow mangrove creek waiting to be repaired.
When it came time to move the boat to have it hauled out and repaired, I wanted to be sure it would be moved without risk or worry- and Jason from Mission Beach Charters was asked to manage the operation.
I am very, very impressed by his work. He timed the move perfectly with both tide and weather working in his favour. He has years of experience as a professional tug boat operator so understood the need for control over the situation. He had all the gear required, knew exactly how to lash the boats together, and was able to pilot the boat out of the creek without raising a sweat! He makes every aspect of boat management look easy, and had the job done in less time than I thought possible.
If I am ever in need of on-water help, or transport to the islands, I will be calling Jason and Bec at Mission Beach Charters.
Cheers and Thanks,
Phil

Thank you Phil!
Yes, Jason has worked quite a few years as a Master of tugs! (it keeps him on the ball doing jobs like yours every now and then!) LOL
Glad to hear that everything went well - hopefully your boat will be repaired in next-to-no-time, and you'll be back in the water with your family for some sailing adventures on the high seas!
Good luck with the next step - may it be as painless as possible...
Cheers for now,
Warm regards

“Amazing trip”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Wanting to camp somewhere different, I stumbled upon Coombe Island and Mission Beach Charters. Best thing I could have done. After a prompt reply to my e-mail, Bec and Jason were helpful in every way possible. From booking the site for us when I had trouble with the National Park website, to rescheduling when our plans were delayed, to storing our car while we were away, nothing was too much trouble. Jason's knowledge of the area and weather was a great help also, and meant that even with some bad weather, we had an amazing time. I can only hope we are able to head back to this beautiful region soon. We would highly recommend Mission Beach Charters.

Thanks Leah - it's always a pleasure to help! Coombe Island really is a gem, Jason and I have snuck away to escape there on quite a few occasions ourselves! Happy to hear that you and Miles enjoyed your stay and endured the first electrical storm of the season out there - well done!!! (obviously a good choice of tent , hey Leah??? )
It'll be a good tale to tell the grand kids about how you spent your wedding anniversary in 2013!
Take care over Christmas, and all the best for the new year...
Cheers for now

Ha Ha - yes, the dreaded banana curse was SHATTERED that day! - I heard Anthony copped a bit of flack over that...nevermind....obviously the fishing gods overlooked the yellow stowaway that day for whatever reason - PHEW!!
Glad to hear that you and Geoff had a great day out - we look forward to seeing you again for some more fishing adventures soon.
Take care in the mean time.
Warm regards
