As an Australian owned business with local guides, Wildman Fishing Tours have an in-depth understanding of the Top End and a serious passion for fishing. The guides spend every day on these waterways making them local experts.

You’ll be fishing from a 26’ Raysea boat that was custom built to suit the conditions. The vessel is 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 6 guests and to add something extra for the comfort, there’s also a canopy and an eski to keep your drinks and food fresh and cold.

The main target on every trip is Barramundi, but you can also go after Threadfin Salmon, Jewfish, Trevally, Mackeral, Mangrove Jack, Cod, and Snapper. You can choose between a private or a shared charter.

Whether you’re a lure fisherman, fly fisherman, or eco-adventurer, they've got you covered. They provide top of the range equipment. Snacks, lunch and drinks are included.
