CY Charters - Queensland
CY Charters are located on Albany Island almost at the very tip of Australia in the Cape York Peninsula. The island is approximately 5.5km in length and about 1 km wide. The island gives you access to remote Cape York fishing at its finest while still being able to stay in comfort.
Albany Island is indigenously known as Pabaju Island lies within the Torres Strait and is rich with history and culture. Situated directly opposite is the historical Somerset Beach where remnants of the famous Jardine homestead and family graves may be found as well as graves of perished Japanese pearl farmers and the monument to the ill fated Kennedy expedition. Albany is currently accessible by boat from Somerset Beach and Seisa as well as helicopter from Horn Island.
This part of Australia is primarily inhabited by a large indigenous population of Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders alongside a smaller community of non-indigenous people. The Cape York Peninsula and Torres Strait Island groups are rich in natural beauty, tradition, culture and heritage.
Although there is currently tourism activity in the Cape York Peninsula and the Torres Strait Islands, the area is a relatively 'young'and undeveloped tourist destination. The potential for the area to grow as a tourist destination has been recognized, however there are many considerations that need to be taken in order to satisfy the needs of the local community as well as the government and related councils. There is increasing demand for the area from both the domestic and the international tourism market....having said all that, Albany Island is isolated from the mainland and has its own private paradise surrounded by numerous fishing options.
CY Charters groups can range from 2 plus with single anglers able to join other groups at times. There is bedding for 12 people and bigger groups can be requested occasionally. Lodging is in a two story building with magnificent views over the water separating the island and the mainland. Bush walks on Albany Island are encouraged if you are not too tired before or after a days fishing.
