Extended Safari Fishing Tours
Our extended safaris are perfect for anyone looking to go on fishing missions ranging anywhere between 2 and 14 days long. We organise everything from the perfect fishing spots to accommodation, food and drinks. Our fishing permits allow us to take you where others can’t, making our extended tours the most comprehensive and adventurous in the NT.
From late February – May depending on the wet season, Barramundi gather in the run-off creeks and big tidal rivers to feed on bait fish leaving the flood plains. This makes for an incredible time to fish some of the most picturesque spots in the NT with a good chance of catching barramundi.
From May – November we target barramundi in the picturesque billabongs and river systems where many people just come for the scenery and wildlife. When tides and weather suit, we also do saltwater trips into the harbours and rivermouths where there is a variety of other fish to catch like threadfin salmon, queenfish, mangrove jacks, GT’s and golden snapper.
These extended safaris are like no other in the NT. Our guides are fishing mad and know the territory like the back of their hand. We’ll tailor a wild fishing adventure in some insane remote locations perfectly suited to your individual tastes. Not only will you have a chance to catch some of the biggest and most exciting fish of your life, you’ll also be treated to epic scenery, loads of territory wildlife and some of the best sunsets in Australia – all with a beer in hand of course!
