Mission Beach Charters

Multiple Locations

Experience tropical paradise with a tour tailored to suit your individual needs, aboard a custom fitted six metre all weather Stabicraft "Brahminy".

Locally owned and operated, their tours showcase the pristine Marine and Family Island National Parks in the coastal waters off Mission Beach.

Camping is permitted on several of the National Park islands, and Mission Beach Charters are an official booking agent for National Parks and can provide you with any permits and tags required by law. They have a range of camping and snorkelling equipment for hire, and can put together a camping package, (with or without transfers), to suit most budgets.

Why not treat yourself and a special someone to lunch in idyllic surrounds! They can provide a gourmet picnic made from locally sourced produce that can cater to any dietary requirement.

The local river systems are good for flathead, mangrove jack, grunter, barramundi and whiting to name a few, or if you prefer, you can target coral reef fin fish like coral trout, red emperor, nannygai and sweetlip around the islands and at the reef. The choice is yours!

Winter time is great for mackerel and their skipper knows where to find them. Bait, tackle, rod and reels are supplied (but bring your own gear if you prefer), plus an esky with ice to keep your catch fresh!
