We are crazy fisherman and have been on a several remote fishing experiences around Australia. This is the very best trip we have ever done. Kudos to Hamish & Crew. Nothing was too much trouble and the fishing was amazing...Location 10/10, Food 10/10 thanks Seline!, Crew 10/10, Company 10/10. We had a few other guys on board with us and hit it off from get go. Makes for THE PERFECT FISHING EXPERIENCE EVER. We will be back Hamish! Regards Claw and Al.

David your host has set up Albany Island to be a great escape! An old Pearl Lease on Albany Island that had been abandoned years ago is being brought back to life with a new use of Game Fishing in around the reefs! Hamish and Seline your GM and Chef are just great and in particular the food is outstanding! We were 10 people and all of us had a great time for 6 days! Helicopter off the Island to Horn Island for the Qantas flight is the way to go! The views are spectacular! Get up there before everyone finds out about it - Doug at Fishing Earth as he is the best adventure travel agent that really knows where to go and once again nailed a great trip here!

Hamish and his team were fantastic. It was great experience with all different types of fishing. Hamish really knew his stuff and was great to see someone so enthusiastic about his job. Food was excellent each day and location allows to forget about worries of the world and enjoy the fishing.

A fantastic experience. 5 Days of great fishing with an experienced and knowledgeable skipper. The accommodation was basic but clean and tidy. The meals were excellent and we were made to feel really welcome.

Everything about this place is first class. The location is absolutely awesome located close to the tip of Cape York. The accommodation was great and Hamish and the crew went out of there way to make sure that everything was catered for. Tony, Ross and myself went up to Albany Island with the hope for good fishing. What we got was spectacular fishing !!! At times, Hamish had us on queenfish, golden trevally and nannygai until our arms were busted. Throw in double hook-ups on jewfish, plus Spanish mackerel and fingermark and all expectations were exceeded. Can't rave enough about this place. I will be back and would recommend CY Charters to anyone.
