Thanks Cliff/Stu/Jeremy & Cade for another great trip! We have been doing yearly charters to Northern Australia since 2009 and the 2 trips we have had with Northern Conquest (one from Townsville and one from Cairns) have been the 2 best fishing trips we have been on. Over this period we have been lucky enough to have only dealt with good charter operators. However, Norther Conquest Charters is not only the best Charter company I have dealt with, they are the best company I have dealt with from the tourism industry period. The organising of the trip couldn’t be easier. On our first trip to Townsville we were picked up from the airport, driven to a bottle shop, dropped off at a pub for lunch while the crew got the boat ready, picked up from the pub 2 hours later and then dropped off at the marina with our bags already on the boat and our drinks on ice. Getting on the boat my father said “this is too easy, the fishing can’t be any good” (he was wrong). Not only has Cliff organised our accommodation on both of our trips, we have also been transferred from the marina to our hotel with our gear and our boxes of frozen fish (saving us 2-3 taxis). Whilst on the boat, the crew work tirelessly to ensure their customers are always comfortable and happy (and well fed). Our party is split between those who like bottom bashing and those who like trolling. On both of our trips Stu has kept the bottom bashing and trolling camps happy – a task no other skipper we have fished with has accomplished. The question each year used to be which charter company to book. The question is now which Northern Conquest charter to book.Simon, Denys, Darren, Ken, Dean & Bad Jimmy
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
