Billfish Sports Fishing

Billfish Sports Fishing of Cairns City, Australia is owned and operated by Rick and Margie Eustace. They have been a quality fishing charter business since 1999. Their crew is experienced, friendly, and happy to have families, mates, team bonding for work colleagues or couples/singles who just want to get away on board.

Your boat for the day will be a 43’ Billfish HMG Game Fisher saltwater fishing boat. It comes with twin 375 HP 3208 TA Caterpillar engines, a flybridge with a dive station, a restroom, two in-head and on-deck freshwater showers, fully equipped kitchen, and beds for all of the passengers (up to 6).

This fishing machine is also rigged with offshore approved life jackets, flares, and other safety gear, along with top-notch navigational electronics, outriggers, downriggers, a fighting chair, refrigerators, ice-boxes, and many other goodies. Not to mention that it’s fully air-conditioned and features a smart TV and a multimedia system.

Billfish Sports Fishing offer single day charters and liveaboard multi-day charters. Their packages are based on sole charter only, so you can put your own group together. Billfish Sports Fishing are happy to have both experienced and novice anglers.

They offer light tackle charters year-round and from September to early January, they specialize in heavy tackle charters to target Giant Black Marlin.

Depending on the season, you’ll be focusing on Black and Blue Marlin, Sailfish, and you’ll also have the opportunity to reel in some Wahoo, Barracuda, Spanish Mackerel (Narrow-Barred), Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and many other game species. Please note that all Billfish species are tag and release.

Billfish Sports Fishing can mix your day up to suit your needs, so if you want to add in a stop for lunch and a swim, this can also be accommodated. That way you can have the chance to view the magnificent Great Barrier Reef up close and personal. You can also split your trip between fishing and snorkeling.

I am a Cairns local. My first trip fishing on the Cairns Reef was when I was 6 years old. So this gives me quite a bit of experience. My wife, Margie, and I decided to go into business to offer anglers great experiences on the reef, so we bought MV Billfish in 1999. In the time we have had her, she has been treated to many facelifts – Margie calls her my "Mistress." We have built up many friendships over the years with past and present anglers, all of whom come back and feel like they are part of our family. I have a passion and yes, it is fishing, especially when it comes to Black Marlin season.
