For the serious enthusiast looking to experience the best reef fishing North Queensland has to offer, why not join a fun filled Great Barrier Reef fishing adventure with our highly experienced and enthusiastic crew onboard the Bloomfield Explorer. We will head to the secret spots that have been tried and tested to catch you that fish of a lifetime! Some of the recent catches have been Red Emperor, CoralTrout, Big Chinaman Fish, Gold Spot Cod, Black King, Sweetlip and the Bull Dog of the ocean, the hard fighting Spanish Mackerel. In fact it could be any 1 of 1500 different species that inhabit the Great Barrier Reef.
