Two accessible boats operate out of the Cairns Harbour.


Broadbill is a blue water fishing charter vessel that offers both offshore and estuary fishing tours. It has a wide rear door for wheelchair access. Estuary tours are more suited to those with balance issues or lack upper body strength.

Cairns Calm Water Fishing, Fun and Food, is a shallow draft calm water fishing vessel offering fishing experiences in Trinity Inlet. The vessel has a large flat under-cover deck area with ample manoeuvring room around the boat. It is licensed to carry 25 passengers and could easily accommodate 10 wheelchairs. The boat has a narrow side entrance but the front of the boat has a wide drop down loading ramp.
