Full Day Fishing Trip

The ultimate full-day fishing experience, with rod-bending action that will have your adrenalin pumping! We’ll travel further than on the half-day charter, to deep-water reefs where the fish are plentiful and the fishers are few. On the blue-water, our target species include snapper, mackeral, barramundi, jewfish and red emperor. Target species will vary according to the time of year and your preferences – for more details see the chart below.

Our first reef is a scenic 45 minute cruise out on to Darwin Harbour, and on arrival everything you need for a great day’s fishing is provided, including tuition.

If you don’t know how to fish, or you’ve never fished, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

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.

Jeeve and Sharon
