KEKOA Sport Fishing & Personalised Charters
KEKOA, a 56 foot O’Brien, custom built for game fishing in North Queensland waters, was launched in March 2010. KEKOA is a 56 foot O’Brien Boat custom built for the Cairns marlin fishing season. She integrates luxury, quality and comfort to cater for all your individual charter experiences.
In 2018, we are pleased to offer our guests a new level of comfort from one of the most comfortable and fishable boats in the fleet with the installation of a gyro stabiliser.
KEKOA offers packages at all prime light/heavy tackle destinations on the East Coast of Queensland including Giant Black Marlin Fishing off Cairns, Lizard Island, Cooktown and Fraser Island as well as light tackle marlin fishing off both Cairns and Fraser Island as well.
KEKOA’s skipper Captain Luke Fallon is a 30 year veteran of the Australian marlin industry and aside from being a great skipper who has honed his skills since starting in the industry as a crewman at age 16, is a very competent angler in his own right.
Marlin 4 Miles
Capt. Chris “Sharky” Miles has worked his way up through the ranks to become well known in the industry for his fishing abilities and consistencies, and has great expectations of continuing the same for many more years to come.
Sharky has driven game boats varying in size from 44’ to 65’ that are all fully equipped with the creature comforts for up to four persons that may be required at sea. Living aboard permits the boat to fish later and extends flexibility and mobility in chasing the fish to different parts of the reef reducing travel time is also an advantage and anchoring in the protected waters behind the reef at night gives anglers a prospective early morning swim and or snorkel.
