Outer Reef wilderness trips together to Flinders Reef 150 nautical miles from Townsville. These trips cater to all types of fishing techniques. A normal day would see some of our groups leave in 2 sport fishing boats to cast poppers at enormous GT’s with the main boat trolling the 1,000m drop off for Dogtooth Tuna, Wahoo and Mahi-Mahi. If a few fillets are required, the Red Emperor and Coral Trout living inside the reef are massive. These trips have to be experienced to be believed. Find out more >

Great trip out of Cairns on Sir Reel with a terrific crew. The skipper worked hard to find us fish all week and the boys were amazing around the deck making our life easy with rigs and fish. Chris was the master chef all week. Cannot rate these guys highly enough. Recommended.Dale Bainbridge
We just got off the boat after a 4 day fishing trip and all 10 of us loved it. All the staff were great and could'nt do enough to make you feel comfortable which made our trip thoughly enjoyable. Mick the chef cooked up a storm, and I think ive put on 2kgs in 4 days, hehe. Carl and Bill were sensational deckies and really new their stuff and never stoped working throughout the whole trip. We picked a bad week for the weather unfortunatly, but a big thanks goes out to the skipper (Bob) for always trying to get us on the fish when mother nature was against us. Thanks again, Chris from the Wandering Fisho's 2016.Christopher Rimmer
