Private Boat Charters

Want to experience the Great Barrier Reef, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World in exclusive privacy? Then sole chartering a vessel is the answer for you. Custom designed vessels will get you to the reef in comfort, where you can dive and snorkel the Outer Reef in splendid isolation. A variety of charter boats ranging from sailing vessels, motor vessels and liveaboards depart Cairns or Port Douglas. We also have luxury vessels to suit VIP guests or honeymooners.

Also available are dedicated fishing charters. Reef fishing allows you to chase species such as red emperor, snapper or coral trout. Light and heavy tackle charters on Game Fishing vessels can be arranged if you are hunting for species such as tuna, sailfish and marlin.

Private exclusive charters provide the ultimate reef or sport fishing experience. Please contact us today with your preferences so we can assist you to book the most appropriate boat charter for your group.
