A New Beginning

Some exciting news.

Norseman Reef Fishing has been sold to new owners!

Michael and Abi Taylor of Melbourne have purchased Port Douglas’ longest established reef fishing boat. Michael or Mick as he is known, was a regular customer of Norseman in the past. Fishing is his passion and when the boat came up for sale Mick was first in line to buy it. Since the first of December, Norseman has been owned by Mick.

James Gould the skipper has stayed with the business. James started working on Norseman 20 years ago. He started as a deckhand and continued on obtaining his skipper qualifications. It is a great thing that James has come across to the “new” Norseman. He has a wealth of experience to offer. James works very hard to put our customers “on the fish”. Experience counts! Plus he has 20 years worth of fishing marks!

Our focus at Norseman is to offer our guests the very best fishing experience possible. Customer service is our highest priority. Our crew at Norseman will do everything they possible can to make sure our guests have a great day out fishing.

A few changes have been made to the day out. There is no extra charge to use our custom built rods. The use of rods and all fishing equipment is included in the price. Another change we have made is to reduce the maximum numbers of guests on the boat. We want our guests to have a great fishing experience so we have capped the numbers to 20 per day. This ensures that the quality of fishing experience is maintained for our guests.

Even though Norseman is a 60 foot boat, in our opinion, taking more than 20 people compromises the quality of the fishing experience for everyone, so since the 1st December we have been running with the smaller numbers.

There are a few more exciting changes taking place too, but more on those later. For now let’s just say WATCH THIS SPACE…

You can keep up to date with the adventures of Norseman, as we have a great Facebook page called Norseman Fishing. The crew upload photos from our fishing days.
