Cobourg Fishing Safaris

Cobourg Fishing Safaris is the charter company of choice if you wish to spend a day or few in the gorgeously remote areas of Cobourg, NT. They offer an exclusive fishing experience with fly-in/fly-out fishing charters, catering to only one group at a time. They are based out of Venture North’s unique safari-style camp, called Cobourg Coastal Camp, where you will enjoy stunning views overlooking the bay of Port Essington.

The Cobourg Peninsula is located an hour’s flight from Darwin, and is known as one of Australia’s top fishing destinations. The area boasts diverse marine environments, which means that there are plenty of fishing options. Barramundi and Mangrove Jack can be found all year round in the mangrove lined creeks and gutters, although it’s the blue water action that avid anglers are drawn to in this area.

You will fish from Barlu, a custom built 6.8m mono-hull Eliminator Guide Pro, which has been specially designed to suit all types of fishing and marine activities. Powered by the latest model 225 Yamaha outboard motor, the vessel can accommodate up to eight passengers. When fishing, 3 competent fly fisherman, 4 competent spinners or 6 people bait fishing at any one time.

The rear centre console provides plenty of space and comfort for guests, whilst the bow boasts a large casting deck that is ideal for sight fishing and marine spotting.Your targeted species will also include Rockfish, Kingfish, Cod, Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, Red Emperor, and the famous Giant Trevally.

Cobourg Fishing Safaris trips include all the latest fishing equipment, but you are welcome to bring your own, all meals and non-alcoholic drinks, an experienced fishing guide, accommodation at Cobourg Coastal Camp (twin-share), and all permits and camp fees for accessing Aboriginal land/water.

Cobourg Fishing Safaris also provide return airfares between the Cobourg Peninsula and Darwin, and return transfers from Cobourg Airstrip to the Coastal Camp.
