During your stay experienced crew of professional fishing guides, and catering staff will see to your requirements. While our chef will attend to your hunger pangs with mouth-watering menus. Fresh fish prepared so many different ways that you will not know which is your favourite dish!!! Five Star service, good wholesome meals, luxury live aboard accommodation, purposed built sportfishing vessels, lots of laughs and camaraderie with crew and other anglers. You will not be disappointed.


Barramundi, the iconic Australian sports fish, will be hooking up onto your soft plastic lure in no time along with a host of other estuary species. Or having an adrenaline rush as a Majestic Giant Black Marlin leaps out of the water beside the boat testing your endurance and technique. We fish from sun up to sun down and be rewarded with a hot shower, freshly prepared food, and a crispy cold beverage at the end of the day.
