Custom Itinerary

Offering first class offshore, estuary and river fishing...

Trips run from February through to December. Itineraries are fully customised to suit the time you have, flight arrival / departure schedules and fishing requirements. Enjoy the company of our professional guides as you experience Top End fishing at its best. Fish pristine & remote wilderness river systems along the NT coastline. 

All charters include: Services of professional crew and guides, seven meter fishing vessels, plus provision of all fishing tackle (on a replace if lost or damaged basis), all meals prepared onboard by our hospitality staff and your accommodation. Drinks are extra so please bring some cash to cover this account. Please advise volume and variety of drinks required with plenty of notice, to ensure the boat is suitably stocked to meet your individual requirements.

Most of our charters begin and end in Darwin NT and head out to pristine and remote fishing grounds to the east, west and north. We have a range of seasonal itineraries incorporating the Tiwi Islands, Cobourg Peninsular, Croker Island, Port Keats, The Moyle rivers, the Daly River, the Peron Islands, Shady Camp, Chambers bay and Mini Mini. See our Locations page for more details on where we can take you.

The fishing

We offer you the most exhilarating Lure and Fly Fishing aboard the fully appointed, luxury mothership SWORDFISH featuring air-conditioned cabins and saloon. We specialise in light game, reef, estuary and Barra fishing. February to early May is primarily Barra fishing, May to mid-December offers Barra and pelagic fishing. We will advise you on the best fishing locations for the type of fish you would like to catch.

Booking numbers and charter duration

We require a minimum of six and allow a maximum of eight persons on each charter. Single anglers are most welcome and can register for any available space to join one of our charters. Our comfortable, first class on board facilities make fishing a breeze for female anglers too.

Please allow eight days for a seven day booking as we offer a boarding day free of charge. Travelling between areas is carried out overnight, where possible, so your fishing time is not disturbed.

Booking tip: Five day bookings access fishing areas closer to Darwin and do not provide for "remote area" fishing in its entirety. To experience remote area fishing at its best we recommend seven to ten day bookings to allow time to get you away to pristine wilderness fishing areas "away from the crowds".
