about CY Sports Fishing

Our key focus is on delivering the best blue-water fishing experience of a lifetime. CY Charters groups can range in size from 2 to 6 people. There is bedding for 12 people, and bigger groups can be requested. 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 redesigned guest house (originally the Pearl House) accommodates an individual or a group of up to 12 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… you might even try your luck for the legendary sailfish.

CY Fishing Charters 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.

Why Albany Island?

As a sports fishing adventure charter  business we only fish the best tides & times each month. This does mean different things to different sportsfisho’s… for example, a flyfishing group targeting Blue Bastards will look at tides differently to a GT popper group looking to find monster GT. The GT sportsfisho’s are looking for good clean water as well as pressure points where bait schools can be found. Speak to us about what type of fishing you are looking to do and we will work with you to find the best times and tides.
