Fish__mediumOffering some of the best fishing in the world, spectacular scenery and perfect weather the Kimberley is undoubtedly a very special place. Isolated and remote, this true wilderness country encompasses rugged gorges, towering sandstone escarpments, meandering river systems and immense estuaries. The waters are teeming with many species of fish including Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, Fingermark, Bream, salmon, giant Trevally and more. We take a maximum of 12 guests on our fishing expeditions to ensure that there is plenty of space in our tenders which are driven by a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide who will use their experience to help you land the ‘big ones’!

Our guides will show you our secret spots where we work the numerous rock bars, snags and run-offs and fish from dawn til dusk.

All of our specialist Kimberley fishing safaris are scheduled specifically around the tides to give you maximum fishing time & idyllic conditions. Barra Punts equipped with depth sounders & 4 stroke 90HP Honda outboards.

All fishing excursions are accompanied by one of our experienced Kimberley fishing guides. We provide a large range of specialist Shimano rods & reels, as well as an extensive array of lures. Gear is provided on an ‘if lost replace’ basis however you are of course welcome to bring your favourite lures and your own rod & reel.
