Darwin’s Best Fishing Trips

Full Day Reef & Sport Charter

On our full day charters, we travel to some of the best fishing destinations in the Northern Territory. Our highly experienced team tailors each fishing charter to suit the tides, weather conditions and time of year to ensure we produce the best results for our guests.  

Your day will begin with a meet and greet at Dinah Beach Boat Ramp in Darwin at about 7am (tide dependant), followed by a safety briefing and an outline of the plan for the day. After our introduction, we will travel to our first destination. You will be served a light breakfast along the way. 

Your day will include a wide variety of reef and sport fishing (as outlined below) at a number of destinations throughout the day. Upon arrival at each destination, your fishing guide will provide you with all the tutoring and assistance required for you to master the various techniques. Plenty of snacks, cool drinks and lunch are available to keep your energy and hydration up through out the day. 

You are of course welcome to keep or release the fish you catch. Many guests like to keep their catch and take it home with them. Our team will clean, fillet and bag your fish to take home. Please note our team adheres strictly to Northern Territory fishing regulations and bag limits.

Half Day Reef & Sport Charter

Our half day charters cater for those that are time short. On our high speed vessels, we will visit some top fishing destinations close in to Darwin. Our highly experienced team will tailor your fishing charter to suit the tides, weather conditions and time of year to ensure we produce the best results we can for our guests.

Depending on conditions, we may run our half day charters in the morning or afternoon. If you have a preference please let us know at the time of booking.

After our introduction, we will travel to our first destination. Your half day charter may include reef and/or sport fishing. We are very time short on our half day charters, so we can’t incorporate as much variety as our full day charters. Sometimes we may only do sport fishing, other days only reef fishing and some days a bit of both. Our half day charters provide a taste of the full day experience. Upon arrival at each destination, your guide will provide you with all the tutoring and assistance required for you to master the various techniques. Plenty of snacks and cool drinks are available to keep your energy and hydration up through out the charter.
