Great Day Out
, Jul 2021
Great experience. Darryl was an excellent host. We did not catch a lot of fish but it wasn’t from a lack of effort. It was a beautiful stretch of water and got to see a lot of the estuary system. We would come again if we are in Cairns.

Girlfriend's first fishing trip

Darryl is a friendly, accommodating and very knowledgeable fishing guide. All of our lines were baited and casted for us and he navigated the estuary with expertise. He provide mosquito repellent, sunscreen and took the time to ask us about our personal lives. Although we didn't have the best luck fishing that day, my girlfriend and I had a great time and would recommend.
