Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had the best half day coastal fishing trip with Cairns Fishing Adventures. Chris has recently taken over the business and it 100% lived up to the great reviews I had previously read. I went with my 3 boys (10, 12 & 13) and Chris was so lovely, very patient helping the boys and keep us all baited up. We caught heaps of beautiful fish and the boat was perfect, great size and very comfy for the run out and back. Recommend Chris and Cairns Fishing Adventures to anyone.

Highly recommended for serious fishermen looking to connect with a charter company that knows the area, is professional and provides superior service.

Highly recommend Carlo for a full day out on the reef fishing ,17/12. Took my wife and three children out with little to no fishing experience. Carlo could not have been more helpful, baiting the rods and fishing tips. Plenty of big fish caught and a few bigger got away. Would definitely go again if up in cairns.

My self and 4 mates used cairns fishing adventures while we were on a fishing holiday in cairns. Will I can say is that if you want to catch fish this is the charter to use. The captain Carlo was amazing with his in-depth knowledge of the reefs and fishing spots. His ability to target certain species is fantastic. Not only did we catch some great fish but had a great time doing it.

Went out reef fishing with Captain Carlo and had an amazing time! He was friendly and knowledgeable; we caught way more fish than we anticipated! Originally we had not planned to keep any of the catch as we are here on Holiday without access to a kitchen, but luckily he recommended a fabulous restaurant that cooked up the catch as a three course dinner for a very reasonable price! Carlo even sliced up fresh sashimi right on the boat for us! Will definitely be booking with Captain Carlo again during our next visit to Cairns.

Carlo was an amazing captain and fishing guide! My husband and I don’t have the words to express what an awesome day it was and how grateful we are to have found him.

Carlo was super helpful throughout the day, expertly moving around to find new spots if the fish weren’t biting, re-baiting practically with his eyes closed and showing his boating experience while behind the wheel. When I missed a big Tuna hit, he was determined to get me another opportunity - helping me scout out and cast into Tuna boils late into the day. He went above and beyond in every way. By the end of the trip, we made a new friend.

From the time we made our first enquiry to the day we went out on the charter, Carlo went above and beyond to ensure our group of 4 had the best possible experience on the water. The weather wasn't look great so Carlo was happy to accommodate us for an early start to make the most of it and beat the wind. He took us to some really beautiful spots and put us on the fish, the rest was up to us. Had fun rising to the challenge although luck wasn't entirely on our side but it wasn't from Carlo's lack of trying. You could tell he wanted us to catch fish probably more than we did! He was professional yet relaxed at the same time, which made for good mood on the boat. We were lucky enough to see a whale and her calf which was an unexpected bonus. Overall we had a great day, can highly recommend Carlo and can happily say we will be back to do it all again next year.

Let me start out by saying that my husband and I have chartered fishing boats all over the world (Hawaii, Cabo, Thailand, New Jersey, Canada, etc.) And I highly recommend Cairns Fishing Adventures with Carlo.

From the very beginning of the process Carlo deserves an A+. We contacted Carlo to hopefully go juvenile black marlin fishing and he told us that it wasnt the season but gave us other suggestions for fish in season. Other boats could have said, sure let's take their money and go juvenile black marlin fishing, but Carlo really seemed to care about making sure we had a good and productive day fishing. Carlo was in constant communication prior to our fishing charter, answering any questions we had in a very timely manner.

Now, onto the day of fishing, we met Carlo at the Cairns marina at 8am. He was waiting for us as we arrived. He started out explaining the boat and his plan for the day. His boat is pristine! I have never seen a charter boat as well maintained as this one. It has a large casting platform off the front and lots of room in the back to fish from as well.

Prior to the day, Carlo emailed us to warn of rough conditions and asked if we wanted to cancel our charter. Since we were only in Cairns for a short period of time we decided to keep our charter and go river fishing instead of inshore. The storms hadn't kicked up as we got on the boat so we took a quick trip out the channel markers to fish for queen fish (which we caught). Carlo really seemed concerned about us having a good fishing day!.

In summary, if you want to do some fishing in Cairns I recommend booking Carlo and Cairns Fishing Adventures.

My Friends and I visited Cairns earlier this month. Went out with Carlo from Cairns Fishing Adventures. What a day. It was just full on. So many great fish with some whopper Finger Marks. But the best of the day was my 87cm Black Jewfish. Carlo is such a nice guy and so willing to help. Truely the best and friendliest charter I have been on. Thank you for such a great day.
