Fishing Adventures

The waters surrounding Hayman provide some of the best fishing in the world. Australian and international records are continually broken and set here. In recent years, several Marlin in excess of 500 kilograms have been caught. Full and half day fishing trips and private charters are available from the Marine Centre. The Sun Aura is a 12.5 metre (28 foot) game fishing vessel with a spacious deck ideal for reaching fishing tackle and for playing very large fish. One&Only Hayman Island Chefs can cook your catch and present to you and your party in the restaurant of your choice.
