“The Torres Strait links the Coral Sea to the east with the Arafura Sea to the west and is situated between Australia and Papua New Guinea. The Torres Strait is dotted with many small islands 20 of which have small communities ranging in populations from 80 to 750. A live-a-board charter through the Torres Strait not only provides an opportunity to savour some sensational fishing but also gives an insight into the Melanesian culture and way of life.
You will depart Thursday Island and set sail through the magnificent waters of the Torres Strait weaving through tropical islands and magnificent coral cays. Each day will bring a new location and plenty of surprises. Days will be spent trolling for Mackerel sail fish and other pelagic, fishing the reefs for Coral trout, Golden snapper, Red Emperor and Nannygai, cast a fly over the sand flats for GTs and visit some exceptional Jewfish holes. Once out to sea try your luck for a Marlin.
At the end of each day sit back with ale in hand and indulge in the finest feast including fresh local seafoods. This is your ultimate tropical fishing holiday.”
