My dad and I really enjoyed the mothership safari. Both of our fishing guides had superior knowledge, and put us on the fish when other boats were catching much less. We had very early starts to get the best spot, and received lots of tips on technique as we trolled and cast for barramundi and other targets. The accommodation at... More

Despite the fact that I wasn't lucky enough to land a fish, the experience I gained was huge. Being the only female on the trip was a bit daunting, but I wasn't made to feel any less than the guys. Had never fished like this before and I learnt so much. Congrats to the other two on their catches and... More

I booked on a 3 day mothership run-off safari earlier this year. The accomodation on board was nice, with good company and hard working staff. The fishing however, was a lot tougher that I expected. No fault of the guides as they worked hard to try to put us on to fish and no one else seemed to be getting... More

Just a short note this trip was awsome. From the time we booked and when we left the Barra Fishing Safari was the best. All my friends still talking about it & Alan the owner & guide is so professional you could not ask for more thanks Alan & Team. We are thinking of getting another group for Next year.

7 blokes who hadn't been to Darwin before but absolutely loved the experience. Caught 4 metre plus Barra during the trip. Stayed on the mothership which gave us the opportunity to spend endless time on the water, fishing. Cyclone Nathan cut short our enjoyable time but we will all be talking about this trip for years to come. There is... More

We did not stay at the Barra base Accomodation - so cannot comment on this. However we did do a 2 day fishing tour with the Darwin Barra Base. We spent the big $$$ to fly up to Darwin just for a 2 day fishing safari, but unfortunately never caught any Barra. In fact, we only caught 1 fish over... More

My partner and I joined a barra fishing tour a couple of weeks ago as we are new to the NT and wanted to give it a go. We organised a tour with Darwin Barra Base and had the best day! From pickup to drop off the tour was easy, fun, and a true NT experience! Absoloutely everything is done... More
