The remote area of the Swain Reefs has around 1,000 coral reefs within its boundaries and is located 120 nautical miles from our departure point in the port of Gladstone where you are able to fish the reef all year round.

The trip can take a minimum of 12 – 15 hours travel time weather dependent (overnight from the port of Gladstone) to reach these remote outer reefs.  The trip will take you past the northern side of the Capricorn Bunker Group then across the 50 mile wide Capricorn Channel to reach the western side of the Swains.

This remote reef system offers species such as Coral Trout, Sweet Lip (red throat emperor), Spanish Mackerel, Red Emperor and more for the keen angler. Fish from one of our 5 tenders available to our guests or Drift the deep from the Eastern Voyager.
