What We Do

Charters

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the premier fishing, diving, research, reef walking or sightseeing holiday destinations in the world. Enjoy this spectacular natural wonder with Capricorn Star Charters.

We can arrange trips to fish the Swains Reef, cruise the islands and reefs of the Capricorn Bunker Group or design your own holiday. Capricorn Star Charters offers short and extended charters for group bookings of up to 14 passengers aboard our beamy 22m vessel, the MV Capricorn Star.

Fishing

The Swain Reef is the most popular location for an extended fishing trip. Located 150nm from the East Coast of Queensland, it provides opportunities to fish deep and shallow reef systems, troll for pelagics or kick back with a beer and admire it’s sheer beauty!

Heading further East, Saumarez Reef and the Coral Sea entices fishermen looking for big fish action. A minimum of 10 days is required to explore these fishing grounds.

A trip along the coast north to Island Head, Pearl Bay, Port Clinton and Shoal Water Bay or south to Yellow Patch, Narrows, Port Alma and The Bunker Group offers a mixture of Reef Fishing, Estuary Fishing and the opportunity to set a few crab pots or walk on remote beaches amongst magnificent mangroves.
