Darwin Harbour Fishing Charters

The sport & lure fishing around Darwin varies with the seasons but throughout the year offers great possibilities to tangle with some Top End speedsters.

You will fish utilizing a variety of techniques, trolling, jigging & casting depending on conditions at the time. Queenfish, Tuna, Mackerel & Trevally are some of the species you may tangle with on this tour.

This tour is only available when the tides are building from the neap (small) to the spring tides (big) giving better water clarity which the pelagic of Darwin prefer. The departure and return times for this tour will also vary with the tides with the aim of having you on the water during the more productive fishing times.


This tour predominantly fishes Darwin harbour but later in the year when the conditions suit you may fish the Vernon Island area.


You will be collected from your Darwin accommodation and will be returned to your accommodation at the end of the day. To get the best of the tides pickup & drop off times will vary and will be advised when booking is made.
