The Port Douglas region has numerous small creeks and rivers to explore, as well as coastal beaches, flats and inshore reefs. You can target Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, multiple Trevally species, Queenfish, Fingermark, Coral Trout and many many more.
Some of the lesser fished creeks outside of Port Douglas Inlet offer some of our region’s best fishing and pristine environments.

We are one of the few operators with a permit to fish the Daintree River. The Daintree is our region’s largest river with over 25 km of navigable water. It is surrounded by spectacular World Heritage Listed Rainforest and local farmland and is one of our most pristine fishing environments. It also boasts an amazing array of bird life and plenty of crocodiles.

Fishing the Daintree river offers the best chance in our region to hook a wild Barramundi at any time of the year, our warmer months (September to March) being the optimum time, but we have caught Barramundi on lure in this river in every month of the year.
The saltwater environment offers a vast array of bait fishing options if lure fishing is not your preference.
