Tour Overview

Arrival day is always buzzing with the anticipation of what the week is going to bring. Nothing beats cold beers on the apartment veranda while you’re rigging up all your gear and getting to know the guys you will be fishing with for the next week.   

As we fish our way through the fishing grounds each day you will soon see the abundance of life that this region has to offer. The vast numbers of GT’s, Spanish Mackerel, Red Bass, Blue Fin Trevally and the usual suspects found around the reef such as Coral Trout, Red Bass, Job Fish and the list goes on. Don’t be surprised at the ability to tally up a species count well into the double figures on a day spent fishing this region.

This trip was put together for the angler who prefers to sit back in the comfort of an apartment on terra firma without having to compromise on the quality of the fishing trip and the experience. Come back at the end of the day to a brand-new renovated apartment and enjoy the best the far north has to offer! Join us for the once in a lifetime adventure!
