With highly experienced guides and a fleet of sturdy boats, they pride themselves on their friendly attitude and the great time they show each and every person who comes aboard their boat.

During your trip, you will be fishing aboard a boat that was custom built for Darwin’s big tides. These boats allow you to access waters other boats can’t reach, and they are all fully surveyed and equipped with a shade canopy and walk around deck.

There are over thirty species of fish that you can catch in the waters around Darwin, and Darwin Harbour Fishing Charters has the equipment and local knowledge to help you hook them. The guides have over 15 years of experience in these waters, and they are ready and waiting to take you exploring the local estuaries, mangroves, mud flats, reefs, and wrecks. With extremely short travel times, you will be able to maximise your time on the water, catching fish as diverse as Barramundi, Threadfin Salmon, Golden Trevally, Queenfish, Mud Crabs, and many more. You might even see a croc on your charter!

The crew will be on hand throughout the trip to assist you in every aspect of fishing, from baiting your hook to cleaning your fish and filleting it for you to take home and enjoy. They know how to find fish and, most importantly, to make sure everyone in the group is having fun.

If you are not able to take your catch home with you, the crew would recommend you practice catch and release to protect the local fish stocks and to keep them healthy for you and all around you to visit and enjoy another day.

Come and explore Darwin’s amazing fishery today - the fun never ends!

The trip to Darwin was for my parteners birthday and it took a few calls to different fishing charters before I was able to arrange a half day trip with Darwin Harbour fishing charters.  What can I say, Captain Paul was a very experienced skippy and fishing guide and had us on fish for the whole trip. We caught all verity of species from golden snapper,strippies (flag fish)small sharks. It was a fantastic fishing trip and well worth the money.
To top things off as we were heading back in to the jetty, Paul suggested that we take some fish (which he filleted) and he would take us to take away restaurant on Stokes Hill wharf called “Fusion”.
There cooked (grilled) the fish to perfection and served it up with fresh salad and chips for $10. What a way to finish a great day on the water
Thanks Paul for wonderful trip, we will be back again,thats for sure.
