|Bianca has worked extensively around the world onboard numerous luxury yachts and larger commercial vessels as Skipper, Marine Engineer and Mate. She was introduced to the ocean at a very young age and would be safe to say she has spent more of her life on water than on land. She is your dedicated Skipper and will also be your onboard cook preparing fresh meals including your catch of the day. Bianca also holds PADI professional qualifications capable of offering diving services onboard.”You can’t come to an amazing destination like this and eat bad food! “|
|Joe has a strong background in Barramundi Aquaculture and has also spent a lot of his days on the water working in the commercial fishing industry. His youth was spent growing up on a farm on the Daintree River and exploring the Great Barrier Reef and his love of the region reflects this. Joe is an experienced Engineer and knows the Eclipse and her fleet of tenders inside out and back to front. Joe will often be found around Eclipse servicing and checking gear ensuring all is running smoothly or preparing one of his famous beach BBQ’s for the clients to arrive back to after a hard days fishing.”Every day is different, it could be the sea, the wind, the weather or the people, no two are the same. I’ve got a job I love and the best office in the world”|
|Chris was born in Port Douglas and fishing has been an obsession of Chris’s since early childhood and still is. He has put in the hard yards his whole life fishing at any spare moment from a very early age and brings with him a wealth of knowledge that he loves sharing. It is not hard to see that Chris is a mad keen dedicated fisherman. Throw in adventure and some spectacular fishing scenery and Chris is as happy as a clam at high tide. There is nothing Chris enjoys more than helping a client perfect their fishing technique to hone in on that fish of a lifetime and then watch that drag scream. Chris has an outgoing attitude and a huge amount of patience. Everyday with Chris is a good day! He is also slightly addicted to catching very oversized fish on line and gear that is way too light. Chris is experienced with light tackle and heavy spin gear as well as guiding some of our regular fly fishing clients onto some memorable trophy fish.|
