Fishing Charters
Port Douglas Fishing - local creeks and estuaries

The Port Douglas region has numerous small creeks and rivers to explore, as well as coastal beaches, flats and inshore reefs. You can target Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, multiple Trevally species, Queenfish, Fingermark, Coral Trout and many many more.

Some of the lesser fished creeks outside of Port Douglas Inlet offer some of our region’s best fishing and pristine environments.

Perfect for families looking for a fun and easy 1/2 day on the water or it can be tailored to the keen fisho who wants to lure or fly fish for some of our iconic, hard fighting coastal fish species.

Half Day - cost $450: Times - 7.00am - 12.00pm or 12.30pm - 5.30pm
3/4 Day - cost $650: Time - 7.00am - 3.00pm
Full Day - cost $800: Time - 7.00am - 5.00pm

Prices are for full boat private charter, maximum 4 persons.

 

Daintree River Fishing

We are one of the few operators with a permit to fish the Daintree river. The Daintree is our region’s largest river with over 25 km of navigable water. It is surrounded by spectacular World Heritage Listed Rainforest and local farmland and is one of our most pristine fishing environments. It also boasts an amazing array of bird life and plenty of crocodiles.

Fishing the Daintree river offers the best chance in our region to hook a wild Barramundi at any time of the year, our warmer months (September to March) being the optimum time, but we have caught Barramundi on lure in this river in every month of the year.

The saltwater environment offers a vast array of bait fishing options if lure fishing is not your preference.

A Daintree River fishing charter can also enable an opportunity to fish coastal islands, wrecks and inshore reefs, just at the mouth of the river. This, combined with estuary fishing, can make for a great full or 3/4 day adventure if the weather allows.

We do recommend either a 3/4 or full day charter on the Daintree, but 1/2 day option is also available.

Half Day (river only) - cost $450: Times - 7.00am - 12.00pm
or 12.30pm - 5.30pm
3/4 Day - cost $650: Time - 7.00am - 3.00pm
Full Day - cost $800: Time - 7.00am - 5.00pm

Prices are for full boat private charter, maximum 4 persons.

Offshore Reef and Wreck Fishing

The Great Barrier Reef off Port Douglas offers some of the best reef fishing anywhere in the world, whether you want to target GT on poppers, catch billfish, mackerel and tuna on light tackle, catch a feed of reef fish, or jig plastics and knife jigs over the wrecks; the options are endless. Sublime Sportfishing Adventures can customise your day to your choice of fishing style.

Please note reef and wreck fishing is subject to weather conditions, with a back-up option being either Daintree or Port Douglas river options above.
