Had a great day on the harbour with Dave and crew, very relaxing and beautiful. It was my first time fishing, so you can imagine my excitement when I hooked my first ever fish, a red snapper which tasted delicious! Highly recommend this tour.


Fantastic fishing and fantastic fun!

Thanks to the Fish Darwin team for taking us out on a memorable day fishing. Someone told us Darwin harbour is fished out – not true! Our tour landed a dozen or more decent fish. A really great day, thinking of booking in again next time we;re up.
