These 4 hour tours of Darwin Harbour give you the chance to:

  • Experience reeling in a variety of fish species including the prize black jewfish or golden snapper
  • Enjoy a social ‘Territory Style’ Barbecue out on the Harbour
  • Learn a little about the fascinating history and sites of Darwin

Half Day Fishing Charters explore the magnificent Darwin Harbour, many times the size of Sydney Harbour, fishing its historic wrecks and reefs which are home to an assortment of tropical reef fish.

Departing both mornings and afternoons, you’ll fish the swing of tide for the best chance to hook up a big one! The actual departure time changes every day, contact us to find out the departure time for any date of the year.

Your experienced and friendly crew will demonstrate how to use the quality rods and reels provided, assisting you whenever needed.

After a delicious Territory barbecue of assorted Burgers and snags and light fresh salads, all cooked and prepared for you by your crew out on the Harbour, your crew will also clean and prepare your fish to take home with you.
Tours depart from the Cullen Bay Ferry Terminal, on the jetty just next to the Lock at the end of Cullen Bay Marina, just 5 minutes drive from Darwin City centre. Please arrive 15 minutes early.
