Our Charter Options

Zulu Gamefishing Charters and Levante Fishing Charters are based out of The Reef Marina, Port Douglas.

Port Douglas is a unique town located 45 minutes drive north of Cairns and is scattered with luxurious resorts, quaint shops and endless exploring activities set amongst the tropical rainforest. Port Douglas is the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef.

We offer the most convenient private charter options to explore the wonders of the Coral Sea and the outer reef.

We can arrange a mother ship, additional fishing vessels and flight transfers if required. We currently have two game fishing vessels in our fleet, our own mother ship and a 40ft Assegai Express launching soon!

Zulu can accommodate up to seven anglers on day trips and up to five anglers for live-on-board charters. All charters are fully catered for and include non alcoholic beverages.

We can tailor your itinerary entirely around your fishing and leisure desires. From popper fishing on the reef’s edge in the morning, trolling the ocean depths and finishing off the day with a snorkel on the reef’s untouched surrounds, we are here to make your trip unforgettable. We cater for private day charters right through to extended trips. Our most popular charter option is private trips for up to four anglers over a 3-8 day trip.

Light Tackle &
Sports Fishing Charters
Light Tackle Fishing basically means you are matching the size/style of the tackle you are using to the fish you are attempting to catch.  Predominantly we use up to 15kg line on specially designed rods and reels.

Light tackle fishing is a fantastic starting point to try gamefishing due to the fact that the juvenile marlin weigh anything up to 20kg and you can therefor stand up and wind the fish in yourself without the need for more technical equipment and a fighting chair.  The light tackle is a popular choice from families and juniors to the keen fisherman that wants to experience the adrenalin rush of sports fishing.

Townsville and along the east coast up to Cairns.

Pricing ranges from $3300/day. Overnight live-on-board options available.

Heavy Tackle &
Giant Black Marlin Fishing
Heavy Tackle fishing or ‘Real Fishing’ as our skipper fondly quotes, is trolling with large bait/live bait or lures on 60kg main line, providing up to 40kg of drag using specially designed 130lb strength fishing rods and the infamous fighting chair.

The crew onboard Zulu thoroughly enjoy sharing their extensive knowledge of how to reel in a big girl and ensure that your catch is documented on film, so you can relive the experience anytime you like, this is also great for bragging rights back at home.
