Book catering


Aquis Fishing Charters allows you to tailor your own adventure.

Have your fish prepared and packed for the flight home and dinner that night, or breakfast the next day.

Whether it’s fishing, snorkelling or a combination of both, Blake will work out the best ocean and reef locations for the adventure you’re after.
 

Blake

After many years working on large fishing charter boats in Sydney, Port Stephens, Swains, Coral Sea and Cairns, Skipper, Blake Alexander decided to go into business for himself.

In 2014, he purchased the 9.75 metre White Cloud with his father David.

Blake knows many people want a more individual ocean reef experience, particularly in North Queensland.

He believes it’s an experience you can only have with a small charter business, one that knows the ropes
– and the tides…
 

Blake thrives on taking people out on the kind of ocean adventures they often only daydream about from their office desk or while stuck in traffic.
 

He’ll take you on a fishing and snorkeling adventure that will having you coming back again and again.

Reef Fishing & Snorkelling

It only takes about an hour to be in prime position for some of the best reef fishing in the world, just off Port Douglas.

Once there you can fish for Marlin, Giant Trivially (GTs), or your choice, and snorkel to your heart’s content.

Departure and return times are flexible, within some fixed limits. Check with Blake about what’s possible when you make contact – particularly if you’d like to head out earlier and bring your own food / refreshments for the day.

White Cloud can take you into some of the most magnificent ocean fishing waters, and picturesque shallows in the world.

Have a chat with Blake about creating the day you’d like to have out on the reef.
