A Typical Itinerary
Arrive in Darwin between 11 am and 2.30pm, depending on your flight origin. Our limo/mini bus driver will meet you off the plane and take you directly to the Cullen Bay Wharf.
The captain and crew of the mother ship will meet you at the Wharf between 2pm and 2.30pm for an immediate departure.
On board you will be served a sumptuous dinner, & watch a movie before turning in for the night.
Overnight you will travel down the South Western coast or North East up to Minimini River system and Endyalgout Island, Arnhem Land.
Days 2,3 and 4
Arriving early morning at your destination we begin by laying crab pots before heading deep into these pristine creeks and rivers in our custom built barra boats to catch barramundi and mangrove jack.
At the end of each day we return you to the mother ship for a freshly cooked dinner of Reef and Beef with fresh garden salad.
More of the same today, however, if you want to try something a little different on this 4th fishing day we can give the pelagic and blue water species a go, either way we will fish all day until about 4pm.
Your guides will secure the barra boats behind the mother-ship and your skipper will chart a course for Darwin. After another scrumptious dinner, a few drinks and a maybe a movie or two it will be time to turn in for the night while the skipper & crew take you back to Darwin overnight.
After a final hot breakfast you will have plenty of time to pack up your belongings and your take home fish into airline approved boxes (These special boxes supplied at $20 each) At about 10am we will have you back at the Cullen Bay wharf where our mini bus will be waiting to take you to the Mirambeena Resort for your last night in Darwin.
Depending on flight times a free morning to check out the Darwin shopping before our driver will pick you up for your return to the Darwin airport.
