A Cairns Institution: 

captain cook seafood


Asking Price: 480,000 + SAV

Location: Cnr Sheridan St & Lilley St Cairns Qld 


This is an opportunity to secure a long-standing Cairns Institution with a large and loyal customer following.

Captain Cook Seafoods was established at its current location 32 years ago, arising from the owner’s passion for fishing and the desire to supply fresh seafood from the abundant and diverse local sources.

The only reason for selling is the illness of the owner.

The business operates out of freehold premises situated on Sheridan Street, the busy main access road to and from all northern Cairns suburbs and Port Douglas to the north.

The business has always been profitable and has a pool from which casual labour is sourced to cover peak demand periods such and Christmas and other holiday periods.

Apart from the usual fittings and equipment, including packaging equipment, the business smokes salmon on the premises and cooks prawns and ‘bugs’ daily to ensure freshness. 

The business has the capacity to build on a current delivery operation.  This includes supply to the wholesale trade and hospitality industry, which is a major sector of the Cairns economy.

An indication of the following and reputation enjoyed by the business can be gained form their Facebook page. 

The freehold premises and a fishing boat are also available for sale should the purchaser wish.

A comprehensive Information Memorandum is available to genuine buyers at the owner’s discretion.
