Barra Private Tours is proud to be based in Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia, offering tailored private charters for individuals or corporate groups. Our knowledgeable captain has been a fishing enthusiast for many years and ensures that you have the optimal time out on the water.

Our 6.1 m Australian Master Marine is the perfect vessel for taking you out on the area’s remarkable rivers and coastal creeks, thanks to its 250 HP outboard engine and cutting-edge navigational equipment. Through the LiveScope, we are able to detect fish and check their movement. Accommodating up to four passengers comfortably, it is sure to provide an excellent adventure.

Our experienced fishing guides are always more than happy to share their knowledge on the best places to catch Barramundi - an extremely popular species amongst recreational and commercial anglers alike due to their size, highly valued for its amazing flavour, its capability to put up a fight, and take artificial lures. Generally, Barra reaching the mark of 100 cm in size are around 7-8 years old and can potentially live up to 20 years or even longer.

All you have to bring is your own sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses - and don’t forget to bring your own beer if you wish! You will have access to top-notch light tackle and a variety of lures. Once you have successfully reeled in your catch, your guide will be happy to clean and fillet your fish to bring home. And, to top it off, complimentary refreshments will be provided to make your experience that much more enjoyable.

We would be delighted to have you join us for a truly personalized and unique fishing experience. Book your trip with Barra Private Tours today - you will not be disappointed!

Member since March 2022
I am the owner and operator of Barra Private Tours here in Northern Territory Top End. My years of fishing experience have allowed me to pass my knowledge to my clients and create optimal trips out on the water. My speciality lies in catching Barramundi, one of the greatest fishing challenges on Earth as its substantial size, delicious flavour, as well as its knack for putting up a good fight make it especially attractive. Typically, Barramundi reaching the benchmark of 100 cm in length are around 7-8 years old, but they can live to up to 20 years and beyond. I offer a full guide service; thus, you only need to bring along your own beer and personal items. Everything else necessary for a day on the water will be taken care of. Lastly, you will have the chance to bring your own catch home. I will be happy to clean and fillet your fish for you.
