Boating & Fishing With BLOOMFIELD ESCAPE

Bloomfield Escape is a short walk to the beach, a short drive to the river and a short boat ride to the reef and offshore tropical islands. In short, it’s where you want to be when you want to see some of the most alluring, natural drawcards of this region. This is remote country. Its diverse and finely balanced ecosystem provides habitat for an array of plants and animals, and one of the best ways to see it is by boat. Whether you’re interested in exploring, fishing or visiting the nearby reef and islands, we’ve got you covered at Bloomfield Escape.


A full day trip which takes you down the river and out to sea, visiting fringing reefs and the local island. Lots of time to relax, explore and enjoy this beautiful location, above and below the water.

Boating & Fishing Activities

The beautiful Bloomfield River, surrounded by rainforest with a small system of mangroves, flows out into the Coral Sea with its Great Barrier Reef and offshore, tropical islands. One of the best ways to explore it all is on the water and you’re welcome to bring your own boat, hire one of ours or book a guided river, or reef and island tour with Bloomfield Escape.

We’re small on numbers and big on experience. You don’t need to be a guest to come boating with us.

If you want to hire a boat, then we have two polycraft vessels available, but please note you must stay on the river and not take them to sea. We do half day guided river tours as well as full day reef and island tours. The emphasis is always on having a great day and we customize our itineraries to suit your wishes and maximise your experience.

Please note advance bookings are essential for all Bloomfield Escape boating and fishing activities. For more information contact us on (07) 4060 8346 or
