Zulu Charters

Zulu Gamefishing Charters is based in beautiful Port Douglas at the Crystalbrook Superyacht Marina.

Port Douglas is a unique and popular tourist town located a scenic 50 minute 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 Great Barrier ReefCoral Sea.

We can tailor your trip entirely including transfers, accomodation and external tours so all you need to do is kick back and enjoy the ride. We currently have three multi-purpose luxury game boats in our fleet as well as a stunningly appointed 114ft mother ship. Our vessels can be mixed and matched to suit your charter requirements.

Perhaps some popper fishing on the reef’s edge in the morning, trolling the ocean depths over lunch and finishing off the day with a snorkel on the reef to get up close and personal with the creatures that lie beneath? We are here to make your trip unforgettable.

Zulu can accommodate up to seven guests on day trips and up to four guests for multi-day charters. All charters are fully catered for including refreshments and all bait and tackle.

We cater for private day charters and extended live-aboard trips. Our most popular charter option is for multi-day live-aboard trips over a 3-8 day period. Contact us to start planning your trip now!

Charter Options

Light Tackle & Sports Fishing Charters

We offer light tackle fishing for black marlin, sailfish and other pelagic species such as spanish mackerel and mahi mahi seasonally.

Light tackle fishing basically involves 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. Great style of fishing for the first time angler, right through to the pro.

Heavy Tackle & Giant Black Marlin Fishing

Heavy tackle fishing for giant black marlin, blue marlin and other pelagic species is available seasonally. We recommend 4+ day live-aboard trips for heavy tackle fishing.

Heavy tackle fishing is the ‘real deal’ when it comes to chasing BIG FISH. Trolling with large bait/live bait or lures on 60kg main line, providing up to 40kg of drag using 130lb strength fishing rods and fighting the fish from a specially designed chair.

Bottom Fishing

We offer day trips and live-aboard options for bottom fishing on the reef. Bottom fishing for reef species is available most of the year round and our most popular day trip option.

The targeted (and most tasty!) fish on the GBR is coral trout, red emperor and nannygai.

Tournaments & Fishing Competitions

Tournaments are held throughout the light and heavy tackle fishing season.

Book your charter to coincide with a tournament and let us take care of the rules and regulations whilst you and your team anglers have the time of your life!

Scuba Diving + Snorkelling

Get up close and personal with the creatures that lie beneath!

We offer scuba diving for up to 5 guests on board Zulu, complete with all the necessary equipment and your own dive guide. Never been diving before? Not a problem, we can also offer first time dives for eligible guests right here on the Great Barrier Reef. If you’d prefer to float on the surface and take it all in, we have snorkelling gear available. Let us take to you to the most exclusive and incredible locations and experience the life down under.

Corporate Leisure

Take your next board meeting ‘on board’! We offer trips for corporate get togethers, work functions and networking. Need a little star treatment to get that deal over the line? How about a chef prepared lunch on board in air-conditioned comfort, over-looking the reef or Low Isles? We can offer shorter day trips for those wanting an ‘on the water’ experience without needing to travel to the outer reef.
