The Great Barrier Reef is a fisherman’s playground and the waters surrounding Orpheus provide some of the most sought after reef species in the world. An excellent array of table fish including Coral Trout, Sweetlip, Red Emperor and Giant Trevally can be caught locally. For the avid anglers amongst us, a trip to the outer reef is where the famous pelagic species such as Dog Tooth Tuna, Spanish Mackerel and Wahoo breed.
Following your fishing expedition, have your catch prepared to your liking by our Head Chef and served for dinner back at the lodge.
Orpheus offers full and half day expeditions to the fringing and outer reefs, subject to weather and tidal conditions. Bookings are essential.
