Charter fishing, bird watching, parties or simply just taking in the sights that this amazing location has to offer are the main attractions for clients. Each trip includes fresh seafood prepared in our licenced accredited onboard kitchen, and served on the vessel. It's not hard to impress, with the harbour, the mangrove forests, the endless tributaries, crabbing and history of the region. This magnificent tropical tidal estuary is home to over 40 species of fish which are readily encountered, and is only 2 minutes away from the heart of Cairns.
This waterway is primarily a huge tidal basin with no actual river flowing into it, and offers almost year-round action. It is also a Fish Habitat Reserve, having been recognised for its unique quality and importance in the natural scheme of things. It is a prime fish breeding and nursery area and is the reason why so many juvenile fish are caught in its waters.
The tours attract clients from a wide diversity. Due COVID, overseas visitor numbers have obviously fallen significantly but locals and back backers as well as regulars who arrange parties continue to enjoy the service, which is currently operating when required rather than regularly. Normally, we operate all year round, with spikes around Chinese New year for example.
