Marlin Season

From September to December the Black Marlin return to the waters around Lizard Island and for 7 days each October, Lizard Island Black Marlin Classic sees boats and game fisherman from all over the world ascend on Anchor Bay to fulfil dreams of catching one of these majestic creatures.

All Marlin fishing is confined to specific areas and is “tag and release” to ensure the protection and scientific monitoring of these giants of the sea.

Bookings are essential for all fishing excursions and the Black Marlin Classic and it is recommend these are made as early in advance of your arrival as possible to avoid disappointment.
