FISH THE GREAT BARRIER REEF ABOARD M.V. Phoenix
The opportunity exists for you and or your clients to join us for a fishing charter to some of the best sites available, try dory fishing on bombies around the shallow reefs, or off the shelf in the deep-water for sport fishing for the prolific pelagic.
Fishing deck or Tenders
It’s your choice!
The M.V. Phoenix is large enough to go any where, but small enough to anchor over great fishing sites. With walk around decks and a large low level fishing deck you can pull Coral Trout or Red Emperor straight over the side. How about towing some lures? No problem, the crew are there to help and we just love it.
If you prefer, we can supply fishing dories that you can pop lures from, or fish the shallows.
Prepare to indulge!
