Wildman Fishing Tours brings you the ultimate Barramundi fishing and wildlife experience in the Northern Territory.
Chase wild Barramundi as well as massive Threadfin Salmon, Jewfish, Trevally, Mackeral, Mangrove Jack, Cod, and Snapper.
Our expert guide combined with a comfortable performance boat will ensure you have a great time on the water. You’ll be fishing from a 7.8m Raysea boat that was custom-built to suit the conditions. She’s powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine, features a live bait tank, and all the technology you need to find fishing hot spots. There’s enough room for 4 guests and to add something extra for the comfort, there’s also a canopy and an esky to keep your drinks and food fresh and cold.
Whether you’re a lure fisherman, fly fisherman, or eco-adventurer, we’ve got you covered, and all fishing gear is provided.
Choose from The Mary River, Shady Camp, Adelaide River, the Finniss River, or Darwin Harbour.
