The elusive 1000lb black marlin
This region hosts the most productive black marlin grounds in the world producing the biggest strike rate of 1000lb fish and then complements this by producing over another possible 225 recognised sport fish and table fish from our closest coastal neighbour the Great Barrier Reef.
SECOND TO NONE
Port Douglas is situated near reefs and shelf options including Linden Bank, Opal Ridge and Ribbon Reefs up to Lizard Island are second to none when it comes to landing the biggest of fish in the southern hemisphere. It is achievable by sole charter only including overnight extended trips and mothership options for larger groups. Unfortunately, there are no shared charters on offer in the region. There is a variety of quality game fishing boats on offer varying in price from the affordable work horse to the ultimate luxury fishing vessel.
