Lizard Island is a secluded paradise unlike anywhere else is the world. The island, also known as “The Rock”, is formed by granite rock which is now a national park covering 1,013 hectares with 24 sandy beaches, a lagoon and an exclusive resort.
The island can be accessed via boat out of Cooktown or by air departing Cairns airport.
Over 7 days in October every year, Lizard Island is host to an international tournament run by The Lizard Island Gamefishing Club chasing giant black marlin which have recorded weights of over 1000lb. We have a few clients fortunate enough to be recognised as part of the prestigious ‘1000lb tag & release Club’. The Australian Game Fishing Association Club has a panel of judges that review submitted tag and release videos and induct anglers to the club based on a unanimous agreement to approximate weight. Do you want to join them?
The Ribbon Reefs are a long narrow winding series of reefs that are located about 60miles north of Cairns. These reefs are remote, majestic and thriving with sea life, they can only be accessed by predominantly larger vessels with the knowledge to navigate these exclusive areas. These series of reefs are the Jurassic Park of fishing, containing the largest and most densely populated areas of reef, sports and gamefish.
Fishing the Ribbon Reefs is something tick off the bucket list. This is the mecca of gamefishing locations! Contact us for more information.
