 Avoid the crowd and come on a unique fun 1/2 day snorkeling and fishing tour. We are owner/operators ​and take pride in showing you our island home, its hidden gems and secluded beaches. There is no better way to discover Maggie than by the sea and for a more personal experience we only take small groups.

 Our day cruise is ideal for both first-time snorkellers – and experienced snorkellers who want to learn more about what they’re looking at out on the reef. If you are begining we will assist you with personalised snorkel instructions to give you confidence in the water.

  We love nothing more then fishing and we will get you on a spot in the morning while still on the bite before finding the best snorkelling spots on the day. We are always looking out for Tuna and Mackeral and will quickly troll a lure if spotted.

We will also provide an entertaining and informative commentary about the island and its secrets and always bragging about our life here on MAGGIE and give you many recommendations on whats happening and what to do.

   Our small groups ensure you a memorable fun experience with activities for all ages. 

   June to August is whale season on Maggie and could be the chance for you to tick that off your bucket list .

   October to December is Mackeral/Tuna season on Maggie and many guests will take a bag of fresh fish home with them or eat fresh sashimi onboard which we prepare with soy/wasabi and chop sticks.

  Magnetic Island has many beautiful and secret spots and we know them all on the water. You will also be filled in about much of the local knowledge and island history in a fun and interesting manner and give you infomation on what to do while visiting us. Come join us and find out whats around every head land which makes this island so magnetic.

We love to fish and are very spoilt here on maggie. It is not rare to hook a coral trout, Mackerel, Trevally, Queenfish or a Tuna just to name a few.  If it's big enough we will fillet and bag your fish for you to take home.
