About us
The Boat

Come and fish on a purpose built sportfishing boat and experience the difference.

We operate a custom built 5.5m Galeforce fibreglass centre console with 90hp Suzuki four stroke outboard motor.

Galeforce are well renowned for their strength and stability as well as their great handling at sea and their incredibly soft ride. The boat cruises at 22 knots and can get you to your fishing spot quickly and comfortably.

Equipped with a large front deck casting platform (with safety rail) it is probably one of the ultimate all-round sport fishing boats. A built in esky helps keep your drinks and catch cold.

The boat is fitted with modern electronics - the Humminbird Helix sounder with side scan and GPS plotter and 80lb bow-mounted Minn Kota electric motor with “Spot lock” maximises your time in the fishing zone. For our light tackle days the boat is fitted with outriggers to help you raise and catch that fish of a lifetime.

We are surveyed to carry 4 passengers and a guide, but we suggest for serious sportfishing no more than 3 passengers. All quality tackle supplied, but you are more than welcome to bring your own.

Please note quality lures, rods and reels are supplied by Sublime Sportfishing on a ‘replacement cost if lost or broken’ basis, while hooks, bait and leader are available at no cost.


Your Guide

At Sublime Sportfishing Adventures we have the experience to take you out on a fun 1/2 day Port Douglas estuary charter, Barramundi fishing on the Daintree, light tackle reef fishing, right through to organising a week long Cape York mothership sportfishing adventure.

Owner operator Damon Gruzdev has lived and fished in the local Port Douglas and Daintree area for over 20 years and has a passion for all things fishing that started as a small child.

Damon's enthusiasm for charter fishing started when he began working as a deckhand on north Queensland sportfishing charter boats in the late 1990s and slowly developed his skills as an experienced deckhand on charter boats chasing giant Black Marlin on the Great Barrier Reef. In 2010 Damon acquired his Master V captain’s ticket and Marine Engine Drivers II certification and started driving sport and game fishing boats on the East Coast of Australia.

Damon has spent his off-seasons as an estuary fishing guide in destinations such as Weipa, Cape York, Princess Charlotte Bay, Port Douglas and Cairns and when not at work spends all his spare time fishing for Barramundi, anywhere from the Kimberleys to the Daintree to Mackay for fun.

It was a natural progression to purchase his own charter boat (2016) and offer his skills, advice and experience to people wanting to fish the Port Douglas, Daintree and Great Barrier Reef region.
