Darwin 5 Days Fishing Tour Special Package


Get the best out of fishing in Australia with this special package. From bluewater offshore fishing to heli fishing for Barra, this package is ideal for anglers who wants the full experience, all in just within Darwin!

For bluewater fishing, we engage with Arafura Charters. They are a professional fishing charter business who has been in the industry for over 20 years. Fish the extended full day trip with their fully equipped and comfortable boats with heaps of space and fully covered fishing deck. Target reef species like Golden Snappers, Coral Trouts, Pelagics like Mackerel and Trevallies, as well as in shore sandflats and reefs for the Black Jewfish.

One of the highlights included this package is the Barra Helicopter fishing. Enjoy the thrill of the helicopter ride while travelling to the remote north eastern parts of Australia for one of the most fantastic Barramundi fishing during the run off season from March to April. It is simply taking off on the heli, journeying to the spot, and literally landing just beside the creek! Get off the heli, cast, and get a Barra! We engage with Helifish Tours for the best fishing experience.
