About Albany Island

Our key focus is on delivering the best hospitality and fishing experience of a lifetime. Charter groups can range in size according to how many fisherman would like to fish together in our boats. There can be 4 to a boat, 3 to a boat or 2 to a boat. There is bedding for up to 20 people, so plenty of room for you and all your mates. And bigger groups can be accommodated on request. Lodging is in a two-story building with magnificent views over the water that separates the island and the mainland. Bush walks and beach hikes on Albany Island are encouraged if you are not too tired before or after a day’s fishing.
Remote no longer means you are roughing it! Our guest house accommodates an individual or a group of up to 20 friends and family. You will feel right at home in our easy living accommodation.

Whether you prefer to spin, fly, or bait casting, numerous fishing options are available — this is the beauty of Cape York fishing. For starters, try the nearby rivers, creeks and estuary systems for barramundi. Cruise the flats and sight cast for a myriad of species in this remarkably productive ecosystem. Try reef and bottom bouncing for reds, coral trout, fingermark and jewies. Troll and cast for mackerel, tuna, queenfish and more. Cast poppers for gear-busting giant trevally.  Golden snapper, tarpon, red emperor and nannygai. So much fishing available you will struggle to choose and option.

Cape York Sports Fishing is located on Albany Island at almost the very northern tip of Australia in the Cape York Peninsula. Albany Island is isolated from the mainland and has its own private paradise surrounded by numerous fishing options. The island is approximately 5.5 kilometres in length and about 1-2 kilometres wide. Albany, indigenously known as Pabaju Island, lies within the Torres Strait and is therefore very rich in history and culture. Our staff will enjoy sharing some of this amazing history with you.
