    Big thanks to the skipper and crew. Did an awesome job!!! Everyone caught multiple good sized fish. Guys had a good sense of humour and knew exactly what they were doing. Good playlist on the tunes they were playing as well. Filleted the fish at the end in minutes. Highly

    They canceled last minute on us. Everything was confirmed in advanced 40 minutes before pick up they called and cancelled the trip. Thus, they ruined one of very few perfect weather days for us since it was too late to book anything else. Would not recommend at all.

    Hello dennissP6473OY, Firstly we'd like to apologise for your recent negative experience with Whitsunday Fishing Charters. Unfortunately on this particular day we had a late cancellation from other guests due to unforeseen circumstances (we chose not to charge cancellation fees on compassionate grounds) leaving the tour below minimum numbers to operate. We understand your disappointment and again apologies for this however this was out of our control. We hope you enjoyed your remaining time in Airlie Beach.

    A family of 8 of us went on the morning fishing trip with one solo 80yr old lady. From the moment we went on board it was uncomfortable and unenjoyable. Our crew didn’t even introduce themselves and were smoking from the time we got on. We had my 13 yr sister on board. We only

    Hello 685georgiam, Thank you for your review however I would greatly appreciate if you would remove this review as you DID NOT travel with Whitsunday Fishing Charters. You travelled on a different charter in Airlie Beach. Brendan is not employed by Whitsunday Fishing Charters and has never been employed by Whitsunday Fishing Charters. There are also other discrepancies with your review. There are other reviews on the correct charters page of the exact same nature. Please remove. This has also been disputed with Trip Advisor.
