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.

Awesome, the best fishing charter experience
Had a fantastic day on the water with these guys. Caught heaps of fish and had so much fun with the the skipper and crew. This is the boat to be on for a great days fishing! Thanks Andrew and Dave!
Great day on the harbour!
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.
