Island Explorer Charters

Extended mothership fully guided barra fishing charters depart from Cullen Bay Marina, Darwin. Popular areas include the Tiwi Islands, the Perron Islands and Daly River mouth, Cobourg Peninsula and the blue water north and west of Bathurst Island. Island Explorer carries four well set up dinghies and their professional guides will show you the best of remote creek and estuary fishing. The mothership is also fully equipped for reef and blue water fishing. Combine both in one trip or just concentrate on the big barra up the creeks.

Their crew have many years of experience fishing Northern Territory waters, and they know their way around. There are never guarantees in fishing, but Island Explorer Charters offers rock solid opportunities to catch the big ones. Island Explorer is fully airconditioned with four twin cabins, a spacious galley and saloon area. With huge deck areas and plenty of shade – you’ll be impressed.

Touring Options

Remote Mothership Fishing

On an extended mothership fishing charter, you can experience sensational Northern territory barra fishing in places so remote, they rarely see fishermen. Explore creek systems where there is a fish on every snag and a mudcrab in every pot. Sit over a shallow inshore reef and watch the trevally and queenfish fight over your lure. Tackle the golden snapper and jewfish as they grab your bait and run hard. Try the offshore reefs for red emperor, coral trout, snappers and big cods, providing you can wind them in faster than the sharks can swim. Pit your skills again the big fish out wide, the blue water hosts marlin, sailfish, monster Spanish mackerel, cobia, and the list goes on. Inland Explorer can take you to remote fishing spots you’ve only dreamed of.
