Another new video uploaded to our YouTube channel. I’m currently making good use of internet while I can before our next charter in the Whitsundays. It’s not often we see manta rays while we are out fishing but these guys were super friendly & very playful around the boat much to the delight of our America guests.

P.s don’t forget to watch in HD for best quality picture & please give us a 👍🏻 if you liked the video.

Charter Options

We operate year-round from Port Of Airlie, Airlie Beach. Our most popular charters are overnight live aboard Escape To Paradise stay & plays at some of the picturesque Whitsunday islands & the Great Barrier Reef. This provides opportunity to maximise your day/night fishing at our best secret spots & explore all the Whitsunday Islands have to offer. Enjoy a day cruising, swimming, snorkelling and relaxing on a private beach and throw a line in if you feel like it.


During October through to November, we specialise in giant black marlin fishing charters in Cairns/Cooktown/Lizard Island. Fascination is also available to charter for billfish tournaments like Lizard Island Black Marlin Classic. If you haven’t experienced marlin fishing, our experienced crew will guide you through your trip of a lifetime!
