Cairns Fishing Tours
On the 25th September 1966, Captain George Bransford landed his first thousand pound marlin, caught by his deckhand Richard Obach off Cairns. Australia's first 'grander' and the many 'thousand pound plus' fish caught in the few years following, established Cairns internationally as home of the Giant Black Marlin.
Whether you like marlin fishing, game fishing, reef fishing, sport fishing, fly fishing, estuary fishing or just sinking a line into the water somewhere then Cairns is one of the best places in the world to get hooked. There's a range of fishing tours that take you from estuary to deep sea with all the fun in between. It's a fantastic day out with mates and a great way to not only see the beauty of the area but have a little fun while you're at it too.
Fishing Tours and Experiences
The open waters, creeks and deep channels of the Cairns Estuary System are a paradise for anglers and fishermen alike. Common species of fish caught are Fingermark, Mangrove Jack, Estuary Cod and every fisherman's dream, The Barramundi!
Take a spectacular fishing adventure to the most pristine of Far North Queensland's waterways by helicopter. Fly their tributaries from the Coral Sea coastline before challenging local crocodiles for the catch of the day.
