Timings & Location

You should receive an email prior to your trip confirming timings & location however, you will be contacted the day before the trip to confirm. All of our fishing charters begin @ 7am unless advised otherwise. We ask that you arrive 5-10 mins prior to departure, to ensure we leave on time and you get the most out of the day.

Departure location is Dungeness Boat Ramp, Lucinda unless advised otherwise. Sometimes we do launch from alternative locations for our Hinchinbrook Channel Adventures & we will advise this the day prior.

Lunch & Refreshments

We supply a crib lunch & will have water, soft drinks and complimentary 6 pack of beer onboard for your consumption. Further alcohol can be brought onboard however, we have a CAN'S ONLY policy for safety purposes.

A Great Attitude

All of our vessels are no stress environments. We aim to create the best possible experience, however, Ben is not a magician. There maybe periods throughout the day where fishing may be quiet and that is fishing. But, Ben will work his backside off to produce. Keep smiling, enjoy the experience and things will turn.


We pride ourselves on capturing every moment in high quality images taken from our iPhone onboard so you can concentrate on enjoying every moment. At the completion of the trip, we will either Airdrop, email or send via messenger the images in full resolution.

Sunscreen & Repellant

North Queensland is a harsh environment. It can be hot, humid and the estuaries full of mozzies and sandflies. We provide sunscreen and RID onboard all of our vessels. However, if you prefer to supply their own we will not be offended.


Upon return if we have any fish that you want to take for consumption we recommend an esky, particularly if you are travelling shortly after your trip. If you are participating in one of our Great Barrier Reef Adventures, we advise an esky 100lts or larger. Ice can be purchased from Lucinda Cove Resort at the ramp.

Fish Filleting Service

We understand that its a big job filleting your catch after a big day on the briny. We unfortunately can not process your fish for consumption due to health and hygiene regulations. So, in partnership with Wild Local, Ingham they can provide a professional filleting service where they will fillet, potion, cry-vac, snap freeze and package your catch for collection the next day.

Please contact us if you require this service and we will confirm pricing and inform Wild Local prior to your trip.

Fishing Equipment

We provide all fishing rod & reels, bait & lures. Our gear is of high quality however, if you would like to bring your own favourite rod, we are ok with that. Just confirm with the skipper prior to departure it will be fit for purpose. *NOTE: We do not supply fly fishing, jigging or heavy surface equipment.
