Welcome Cooktown Reef Charters are here to provide you with a full day or multi-day charter service departing from historic Cooktown to the world famous Great Barrier Reef.
Whether bottom fishing with handlines, trolling for giant Black Marlin or popping lures over the reef, our objective is to make your trip a memorable experience.
Working out of Cooktown since 1995 we offer years of fishing experience and local knowledge. By limiting client numbers we ensure you have a personalised and quality service – why fish elbow to elbow with the masses, when you can spread out aboard Hurricane.
You can also enjoy a relaxing snorkel, or just kick back and view the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef. Our location Situated between Cairns and Lizard Island, Cooktown is a 40 minute scenic flight from Cairns serviced by Skytrans Airlines with numerous daily flights. Cooktown is the most easterly point to the Great Barrier Reef and the closest town to the reef. Just 10 miles to Egret & Boulder which means much more fishing time.
The inland road from Cairns is now bitumen all the way, so why not drive on up and experience the best Cooktown has to offer.
