4 Barra Base BoatsDarwin's Barra Base purpose built boats

Darwins Barra Base prides itself in giving you and your friends the adventure of a lifetime.  We will take you to remote locations and to great fishing areas within pristine waters that will have your arms aching during the tremendous fights with the possibility of multiple hook ups.
All meals on safari, remote lodge accommodation, packaging of your fish for flights home, and pre purchase of your alcohol at your expense prior to arrival.

Darwins Barra Base operates two custom built guide boats:

  1. 6.8m NT  surveyed comfortable GS Marine Hydracraft with 225 HP Yamaha Motor.
  2.  7.8m NT  surveyed comfortable Raysea with 250 HP Yamaha Motor.        

All motors are 4 strokes for quiet fuel vapour free motoring.

These vessels are spacious and comfortable with padded swivel seats and canopies for shade, with deep venturi live well tanks for holding your fish alive for that group fish photo. They also have large 123lt Downunder Eskies under the cast deck to put your fish keepers on ice.

Our Fishing Safari Guides have extensive knowledge of the fishing localities and their waters and will demonstrate great local knowledge to ensure that your group will be at the right place at the right time for that trophy fish that you have dreamed of.  Our guides work as a team when working the remote localities to ensure best coverage and knowledge is used to ensure greater catch percentages, as well as safety and security of each other, whilst on the water.


Our Safari experiences have you fishing the pristine run off waters of the Mary River System that flows into Chambers Bay.  Flora and fauna at this time of year is breathtaking, and the birdlife is phenomenal.  You will experience crocodiles in their own habitat and where pigs roam wild and water buffaloes converge on the edges of the floodplains.

The fishing experience not only covers Barramundi, but also Golden Snapper, Threadfin Salmon over a metre, and don’t forget the awesome pulling power of the Black Jewfish.

So once you have booked, don’t forget to bring your hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, camera/video and a good sense of humour.

Anth & Dani's Big Trip Anth & Dani "What an amazing trip, we had tried all types of fishing from rivers, deep channels, poppers, bait fishing, trolling and lure fishing. We were amazed at the variety of fish and beauty of the place. Special thanks to Allan and Heather for their hospitality, we highly recommend Darwin's Barra Base if you are coming to the Territory"
