To find the best places and help plan your fishing adventure, your vessel contains a copy of Whitsunday Zoning Map (MPZ10). With the Whitsundays Islands making up part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine park, zoning is in place to protect and maintain our local fish life. There are still plenty of places to drop a line, just take a look at the map below.

Fishing Closures – No Fishing periods
To protect the vulnerable breeding cycles of coral reef fish, the Whitsundays has fishing closures at certain times of the year that prohibit the catch of any fish classified as “reef fin fish”. If you’re planning to fish while chartering make sure you check the dates below to ensure there are no restrictions while you’re at sea. Fish species outside the fisheries’ list of “reef fin fish” are not restricted though these periods.
