Our Vessel

Estuary Magic

“Estuary Magic” is a 6 metre purpose built V-nose Punt. Built in Cairns by renown boat builders Cairns Custom Craft, Estuary magic is a solid, stable and comfortable fishing platform. With a maximum passenger capacity of 8 and a crew of 2, there is plenty of room for the whole family.

Designed for Comfort

Estuary Magic has padded seating in the centre of the boat allowing fishing from both sides as well as the forward casting deck with a single padded seat. Rod holders are built in along the rails on both sides and the main deck area is covered to provide shade from the sun and shelter if there is rain.

Ensuring your Safety

Estuary Magic is powered by a brand new (2018) Honda 100HP four stroke outboard engine. The Honda is quiet, smoke free and has plenty of power to get us to our fishing spots fast. Estuary Magic underwent a full mechanical overhaul in 2018 with everything replaced to guarantee safety and reliability on the water. Our promise is to never compromise on safety.

Forster Estuary Charters is owned and operated by Antony Balshaw. Antony holds a current Coxswain NC1 commercial boat licence and First aid certificate. We are fully insured and all safety equipment is serviced and maintained regularly.
