My family recently spent a day aboard the Billfish and it was a great experience. Rick, Margie and Simon are a great team and it is obvious that they love what they do and are very knowledgeable about the reef and the fishing. Rick contacted us a few days prior to our planned departure to discuss the weather forecast and update us on the recent fishing conditions. The day ended up being a combination of fishing, educational reef tour and snorkeling, which worked out well for us and kept everyone happy. We managed to land a couple of nice spanish mackerel, one of which was expertly prepared for our lunch by the Captain himself. Whether you want to charter a fishing trip or snorkeling trip, Billfish has the crew, boat and equipment to make your day on the water fun and informative.

First of all, Bellfish has an incredible boat. It is massive in size which leaves plenty of room to relax as you wait for the fish to bite. There is an upper deck with seating, tons of space to reel in your fish, a comfortable inside room, and a legit kitchen for the great lunch that they supply. We couldnt stop catching fish. Captain Richard is very experienced and he knows what he is doing. The crew is super friendly and helpful. Overall, I would definitely recommend and I believe it is worth ever penny.

This was My 4th time on Billfish and the clubs 2nd. Our captain Rick was not only as funny as a fart in an elevator, but also very knowledgeable in finding the fish as they were very elusive at the start. Our poor decky Simon had his work cut out for the day dealing with bust offs, birdnest's and bad mannered sharks, but he is very experienced and did a great job looking after us for the day ( I hope Rick gave you a bonus mate!!) Overall it was a great days fishing with a great crew, great food, no one threw up they're cookies and a tonne of Spaniard fillets to bring home. I highly recommend jumping on-board Ricks Billfish for a great day out!!

We chartered Billfish for a day snorkeling on the reef, no fishing. Rick really knows his way around, and they had great snorkeling equipment. The catering was great too (thanks Marg). Conditions were good, he took us to a beautiful reef with lots of fish and food coral. We had two boats, all up 11 people, and he kept an eye on all of us as we snorkeled. A great day.

Admittedly this isn't the newest boat you could charter but the team know what their about. They are professional and above all knowledgable. The skipper can talk for Australia but he knows where the fish are and can handle the boat to bring in large Marlin. We wanted Marlin and got two, roughly 200lb and 700lb. Great day.
