Why fish with us

We want you to have a great day on the water with us - find out why you should fish with GBR Sport Fishing Cairns.

Here at GBR sport fishing charters our aim is to provide you with a unforgettable Bluewater fishing experience regardless of whether you are a novice or a more experienced angler.  Fish the Great Barrier Reef with us and you’ll be on the front line to catch your trophy or prized fish.  We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you on board!

OUR NEW VESSELL

Launched in 2015, our new boat is brand new and built with fishing and angler comfort in mind (yes, we have a toilet on board!)

The 2900 Powercat Marine is powered by twin Suzuki 250hp outboards and delivers a fast and comfortable ride.

The boat features all the mod-cons that you would expect on a modern vessell as well as new and quality Shimano tackle.

OUR YOUNG GUN SKIPPER

Capt. Tim Sparks is the kind of young gun skipper that you want to jump on board with.

He works hard to put you on the fish and is not happy until you’ve had a great day on the water.

He’s knowledgable and amiable, and to top it all off, he’s one heck of a fishy guy!
