Cooktown Fishing Charters


Cooktown Fishing Adventures is a locally owned business operating out of Cooktown just 3 ½ hours drive from Cairns on the east coast of Cape York Peninsula in Queensland. Our experienced skipper and energetic crew have been fishing the waters off Cooktown for over 20 years.

Whether you want to fish for the beautiful Coral Trout, the sought after Red Emperor, the sporting Spanish Mackerel or even the mighty Black Marlin, Cooktown Fishing Adventures will offer you the most unforgettable experience of a life-time!

Mr Bill is a 56' Randall with a Precision finish, powered by twin 900hp M.A.N. diesel engines. A stunning game fishing vessel which is fully appointed with all the creature comforts of home.

We offer bottom fishing, snorkelling, trolling, and popping lures or maybe you just want to relax, mix a drink and watch the sunset over Cooktown.

Our specialty is extended fishing charters to stunning places such as Lizard Island and The Famous Cod Hole and Princess Charlotte Bay.

Our competitive prices include all fishing equipment and tackle, meals and much more.


Dear Sel and Josh Wendt,

A belated email of thanks for a great fishing trip from 31/7 to 2/8/06, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The repartee, the jokes and general bonhommie was delightful as were our various discussions on life, love and the environment.

Sel, we were impressed with your professionalism, productive fishing locations, continuous filleting and your great cooking. Thanks for the rice crumbs cooking hint and the shasimi. Josh, we were grateful for your attention to detail, untangling our lines and your cheerful courtesies to aging landlubbers. We are all enjoying our coral trout, mackerel, mangrove jack etc as our containers of fish fillets arrived unscathed.

Thanks again for a trip of a lifetime and very happy memories.

Your grateful guests in order of age (I think), Sam, Ken, John, Peter, John, Case, Emmanuel and Orlando. See you hopefully next year, John Thannhauser.
