The Black Marlin of the Pacific Ocean migrate to this 240km/150 mile section of the Great Barrier Reef annually to spawn. Beginning with the arrival of the first fish in early September, the marlin season extends through until late December.
During the beginning of the season, it is a great opportunity to board a vessel at Cooktown and fish this Northern Section of the Reef. During November to early December fishing charters can depart straight from Port Douglas or Cairns.
During the season our superb range of game boats and motherships are to be found on the outer edge of the Reef in the Coral Sea. This quest is for the biggest and most powerful of all the game fish – the legendary BLACK MARLIN!!
We have a variety of packages available to suit all budgets and time spans.
The Marlin season is Late September, October, November till early December
