Daydream Island Travel Guide
Sea Fever Sportfishing Whitsundays. The custom-built game-fishing boat Sea Fever picks up at Daydream Island's jetty at 6:20 am for a fast two-hour boat-ride to the outer Great Barrier Reef. There, you can cast poppers and jig for fiesty giant trevally, coral trout, shark, and red emperor; or sport-fish for large pelagics (Spanish and scaly mackerel, tuna, and barracuda), and, on the way back, troll with light tackle for sailfish and the elusive juvenile black marlin. The rate (A$420 per person, minimum four) includes expert guidance as well as bait, tackle, and lines. Lunch and nonalcoholic drinks and snacks are provided; BYO alcohol (limits apply) along with sunscreen, a brimmed hat, and sunglasses.
