      Half Day Fishing Trip
      We had a great morning on the water with Dale, he was really friendly, had a great sense of humour & helped us set up our rods. He was extremely knowledgeable about the reef & different species of fish & we had a brilliant ride over the waves, haven't had so much fun in ages!😁

      No GT’s but great day out
      Thanks Matt, my son and I had a great day at with Skipper Adam. Adam was great our main target was the GT’s he tried hard moving from reef to reef but they did appear, But we managed to get a number of good size coral trout and other species conditions could not have been better. Adam knew his stuff hopefully on my next trip we will get the GT’s thanks for a great day. Cheers Silvio

    The first day we went out was a VERY wet day, so we were taken up the river. About 90 minutes into the trip the owner of the business rang the captain and offered all customers a FULL refund. This was such a good customer-focussed attitude everyone was super appreciative, putting people and their experiences above just $. Can’t recommend their attitude highly enough - the owner then personally called later that day also.

    We rebooked, and had a beautiful half-day out on the reef. Caught a total of 11 fish between two of us. Water was beautiful, captain worked so hard finding good places for us to try. Also helped in all aspects, including technique, baits, snags, dehooking fish etc. Highly recommend ! Thanks to Paul ((captain on both trips) and Ash (owner)

    Thanks David, we really appreciate you making a positive out of a pretty tropical situation! Although it has been a tough couple of years for small business such as ours, there is nothing more important to us than guest satisfaction. We are really glad the weather came good and we got you out onto the reef and you were able to enjoy your experience. Again we can't thank-you enough for the review it really helps and we would love to see you again in the future. Cheers from all the crew at Out n About Sportfishing.

    Did a private charter with out and about and skipper a Paul. What an excellent day on the water with over 10 species caught and five legal fish to take home.
    Paul amazed us with his ability and knowledge of each fish we caught and facts about the fish.
    Would recommend a private charter as really able to catch a great deal of fish and get the expert knowledge
    We had such an excellent half day with Paul and to be able to cook fresh fish from the reef is excellent.
    Paul is very easy going and such a pleasant day to be out on the reef
    Heaps of bait and helped hook some excellent fish.
    What an excellent day!
    Thanks out and about
    We will be back in the future for another great day fishing :)

    Mal was a great skipper and host, he was relaxed and made the fishing experience feel more like you were out with a small group of mates fishing at her than just a number on a commercial fishing charter. Even though we didn’t manage to take home any large keepers ourselves, others got a couple and we came close a number of times. I’m saying that, just about every time we’d drop our lines down we’d have bites or a fish, so it was great fishing!

    Very very well operated outfit.
    From speaking to Ash with a last minute desire for a private trip for 1 to getting on board the next day with Paul I can't fault them whatsoever.
    On the outset Paul was incredibly accommodating of my desire to simply catch and release and put me right on the fish straight away.
    As with all nature based experiences you can't control what wild animals decide to do. Pulled up plenty of small rubbish in super challenging conditions.
    It was hot and humid, water temp over 31°C and often enough the big ones don't bite with such conditions.
    Paul demonstrated an incredible breadth of experience and wisdom and made the challenging conditions look easy.

    They had another charter depart on a second boat at the same time as me and the safety and courtesy for all at the boarding point was impressive.

    I've chartered many boats across the country and these guys are top notch.

    Highly recommended and ask for Paul because he's easy going, hassle free and straight to task making it easy for you.

    Plenty of fish caught, all released with some excellent stories and education given which made my time in PD more enjoyable especially a great recommendation for a restaurant off the beaten track after mentioning I'd had horrible experiences this far.
    Best feed of my trip up here recommended by Paul. Legendary stuff!

    My 11 yo son and I had a great morning fishing on the inshore reefs with Paul the Skipper. My wife came too but elected to soak in the spirit of the fun we were having rather than cast in herself. Another gentleman named Shane also participated in this shared charter.

    We visited a multitude of inshore reefs, enjoying lots of bites and glorious weather. My son and I reeled in 10 each and Shane was probably a few more ahead of us. My son scored the only keeper of the day, but Shane regrettably missed something that appeared to be really big. One of my son's fish would have been another keeper if a shark didn't intervene and enjoy half the fish on the way out of the water.

    Paul didn't hesitate to move on when the fish weren't biting and it was obvious he had a valuable insight into knowing where to find the fish. If we visit Port again we will be sure to book again with Out 'n' About.

    We had a great morning on the inner reef. Our skipper was Paul and he was very friendly and knowledgable. He did his best to find us the best spots to catch as many fish as possible. We were very happy with our experience and would recommend Out n About Fishing if you are visiting Port Douglas.

    My partner, a friend and I went out on Out n About Sportfishing shared charter and loved the experience. Paul our Skipper was polite, professional and knowledgeable.
    He took his time in finding spots with fish and also showed us how he finds them on the sounder. We have been on a few charters out of cairns for full day charters and had a better experience on half a day with Paul then any other. We will definitely be back for more charters, hopefully really soon! :)

    Myself & my wife , where fortune to head out today with Paul as our skipper on out n about charters. Due to high winds we had to hit the Estuary , with very little action and all of Paul's
    ( special spots ) we had no luck , fortunately about an hour and a half in the wind dropped down and Paul made the decision to head out off shore and we hit a couple of gravel patches , Paul's number one priority was our safety on the water but once it was agreed things are all go , we hit the hot spots and pulled a few fish nothing over sized but still a great afternoon.
    I would like to make special thanks to Paul and the effort he made to get us hooked up & the fact he made it his priority that a little young bloke on board got a few on as well , that's going over and beyond.

    Thanks Paul

    Had a great time doing the 1/2 day reef fishing trip. Caught a few including a Coral Trout but unfortunately all to small, although a legal size fish was caught by one of my fellow fisherman. Paul tried hard and we did get a lot of bites and all on board caught fish, but the big ones eluded us this time.
