OK don't know if I'm putting this in the right Forum, but here goes:

My Plan:
Fly over to Mackay to catch up with my Little Bro between 24/03/2012 and 15/04/2013.
While I'm there:
Free Dive and Scuba Great Barrier Reef.
Refresh my Scuba ticket. Haven't used Scuba since the end of the 80's. Had done a lot but it's time ta freshen my Scuba up.
Get some Kayak Fishing & spearo action in around Mackay area (not around Great Barrier as that is a Reserve).

So what I would like is recommendations for Kayakfishing/Spearo/Scuba Hire/Charters/Tours in the near by area of Mackay and Local Marine Info/Hints (where ta go, what ta watch for, etc).

Thanks

Doug

Ya any good Spearing Crocs? Been chatting ta yakkingbrendon from West Coast Aussie. He reckons only small areas of the reef are no fish zones,but crocs can render inshore areas no go zones to yaks. Most of the Aussies fish with sharks but there is no reasoning with salt water crocs :( So I reckon I'd have a place for ya as a wing man if ya can wrangle Crocs. Ya code name will be "Shark Bait" :lol:
Yer lots of homework ta do yet, but I'll be happy even if I only get ta shot fish with the GoPro, as long as I get ta see Great Barrier Reef. Anything else will be a plus.
