Coral Trout on FNQ Fishing Charter

You can book a Lagoon Explorer trip as either an individual angler, or you can organise your own group and talk to us about customised pricing options for whole boat bookings.


The Lagoon Explorer trip gives you an amazing opportunity to visit a broad range of reef locations.

The areas available to fish from our departure point of Lizard Island cover more than 4000sq nautical miles of ocean and reef. That means each location within this zone gets minimal fishing pressure. We only visit each reef for a short period each year, keeping the fishing in an excellent condition at each location.

Lagoon Explorer trips fish areas such as Escape Reef and the Ribbons Reefs. We decide on the ideal location for each charter based on weather and fishing in the lead up to a trip's departure, and we ensure that you will be fishing the best possible location every time. We know where the fish are, and we know when to fish each area, therefore we will use our ability to move around in the mothership to ensure you have a fantastic trip.

Species to include Coral Trout, Spanish Mackerel, GTs, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Nannygai and many more.


All Lagoon Explorer trips offer you the following styles of fishing:
