Cooktown Reef Charters is a locally owned charter fishing service and has been operating out of Cooktown since 1995.
With years of fishing experience and local knowledge, Cooktown Reef Charters offer a professional boating charter service, second to none. Limited client numbers enable us to offer a personalised and quality service – why fish elbow to elbow with the masses, when you can spread out aboard Hurricane.
Whether we are bottom fishing with handlines, trolling for giant Black Marlin or popping lures over the reef, the main objective is to make your trip a memorable experience.
You can also enjoy a relaxing snorkel, or just kick back and view the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef.
Situated between Cairns and Lizard Island, Cooktown is only a 40 min 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.
