So ask now for a ‘Special Sunset Tour’!

All your fishing gear is supplied and your friendly, experienced crew will be targeting species such as black jewfish, Spanish mackerel, giant trevally and golden snapper. They’ll cook up your barbecue assorted burgers and fresh salads – and if you like, they’ll cook your fish caught by you and hauled in straight from the ocean!

Enjoy your sumptuous barbecue dinner, bring along a few drinks, relax and take in the city lights from the ambient waters of Darwin Harbour.
