Welcome aboard

A trip aboard Great Day offers visitors the thrill of fishing in Cairns, hauling in the famous live mud crabs and hard fighting tropical fish lurking in the calm waters of Cairns Trinity inlet.

Our twin hull aluminium vessel offers full canopy and toilet facilities especially designed for calm water cruises. Sit back and take in the magnificent views of Cairns mountain ranges, lush mangroves and tropical birds.

Our friendly skipper Kent, an experienced fisherman, goes to great lengths to ensure his passengers catch a variety of fish including cod, mangrove jack, barramundi, flathead, queen fish, trevally and many more.

It was a great day Our captain Kent was very friendly and he is a fantastic cook, he prepared a delicious morning tea and lunch with king prawns and crabs. It was absolutely delicious. The fishing was very successful and everyone caught several different types of fish. Thank you Kent, you are a true professional

We went out with Kent a week ago, and were soooooo happy that we\'d caught a HUGE 72cm barramundi in a mangrove creek at Cairns, and a lovely Mangrove Jack.His crab pots pulled up 2 large mud crabs which he cooked on the boat (yummy!!!). Had a really great day with an experienced local guide. Couldn\'t be happier!!

My husband and a friend we were travelling with recently went fishing with Great Day Fishing and Crabbing. They both had a lot of fun. They were lucky enough to have a smaller sized group, so plenty of room on the boat. Alot of fun and humour with the skipper. A few fish caught, some not keepable.

Despite the bad weather, Kent managed to take us to those spots where fish are around 🙃 and he constantly served us with snacks & drinks, really it is a warm welcome on boat. The whole fishing & crabbing is definitely fun, especially when you are told to have the fresh fish sashimi-ed & the crab cooked by Kent!
