My husband and I booked this half day charter with Daniel directly. He was helpful and informative from the time we made the booking. He advised us of what we needed to bring, water, sunscreen hat etc so there were no surprises on the day. Firstly we met Daniel and he was very friendly and eager to get out there... More

Myself and my husband had a great morning fishing with Jim. It was great seeing how the live bait was caught. I caught a fish which Jim cleaned and we had it for dinner that same night. Delicious. We enjoyed our fishing trip.

We went fishing with jim. He was great, helped me out as I'm very inexperienced. We all caught a fish, unfortunately no keepers, but that's fishing. Got to see a beautiful white bellied sea eagle. Jim is knowledgable about the area, not only fishing, but can answer questions about the region.

Myself and my family had an awesome day fishing last Friday with this Company. Our guide Daniel was great! He was really knowledgeable and helpful and had lots of funny stories. Cant wait to go again and would highly recommend them. Cheers, Michelle

I was out with Gone Fishing Cairns on Sunday 25/9/16 - having gone with 6 fishing charters during my time in Cairns- I would rate this particular charter amongst the best. Very friendly and knowledgeable guide who is super organized. He genuinely wants to get you onto fish and takes the time and effort to source quality live bait, moves... More

Went for half day with no expectations. Caught couple of Blue Salmon, Jew fish and the odd baby Shark :D. Guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. Will be back for full day next time! :)

Booked weeks in advance as was trying to add some activities onto the end of a conference. Had a confirmation email and fully paid. Turned up on time to find the boat had been double booked so the sole charter group of 6 got preference over the 3 of us as a share charter. Did get a full refund. But... More

We did a half day charter with Daniel as our guide, and thought it was great. Everyone caught something by the end of the day. Only down points were wasting time catching bait (probably couldve/shouldve been done before we got on the boat) and wouldve liked to have gone a bit further out than we did. Other than that, good...
