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.

    Shawry was super nice and was a good laugh. Very helpful with his tips and tricks and even cut up our fish into fillets for us to cook later that day. Was an awesome day and would defiantly recommend!!

    We loved every minute of this experience/adventure. Booked because our friends have gone before and were highly recommending. And it was even better than we expected. Peter ( owner's father ) has had so many stories to tell about the river, the histroy of this area and the local aboriginal culture. Will do it again

    Great day fishing with a few mates. The skipper and crew tried many spots to get us the best catch. We had an awesome day out and the crew couldn’t do enough to help and fix hooks, sinkers, prepare bate etc. the boat was constantly cleaned each time we would move spots. Plenty of water and soft drinks. Would have loved some bigger fish though it was great to catch what we did. Thanks Derek and crew. Keep up the great work.

    Perfect day! Jake’s knowledge of the area and his fishing spots gave us the fishing experience catching big Nannygai! Highly recommend to my mates and to all coming up to Port Douglas.

    My husband and I went out fishing yesterday and had a brilliant day. We were supposed to go early and got out to sea a bit and storms came in so turned back and weather cleared and out we went again. We had just the 2 of us on the 7metre sports boat. Kevin, our captain and fish guide was so great. Found the fish and advised us on what was there and how to catch them. We both caught a good haul of fish but the highlight of the day was the 85cm Nannygai that my husband landed. Had the best fun and loved everything about the experience. If we’re ever back, we’ll do it again and maybe try their bigger boat.

    I had an amazing day with Captain Matt out of Port Douglas on the 32 foot center console. Matt was very knowledgeable and was a fun guy to chat with. He put me on some awesome fish and we had some great luck with 2 GTs, one barracuda, one Spanish mackerel and a queen fish at the end of the day. The boat was clean and perfect for the type of fishing that we were doing. Highly recommend Matt and East Coast Angling for any of you Port Douglas fishing needs. Hopefully next time I can head out on the mothership for a few days!

    What a fantastic day out. The lunch was superb, and there was plenty of it. The fishing was top notch!

    Ryan, the deckhand could not do much more to help us out. Nothing was too much trouble. Skipper just seem to know where the fish were.

    So much fun!! There's heaps of information, the people who run the show are so chill and look after you. The fish are actually wild which is insane. I would definitely do it again and was the highlight of my trip

    Fishing was epic, crew was excellent, scenery around reefs was unbelievable, food was awesome. Trip of a lifetime. Only reason I rated this trip a 4 was the boat we stayed on was abit out dated and in bad need of maintenance

    Dean was great with the kids - more patient than I would have been anyway😊 No keepers this time but that’s fishing. The brief was to keep the kids busy catching fish & that box was ticked👍

    Very poor experience . Only one type of bait used soft "pilchards" and only one style of fishing aloud "bottom bashing", we are very experienced in and only caught to just legal trout . I would never use Norseman charters again or recommend to any traveling friends or family
