AboutDarwin's Barra Base Fishing Tours

Darwin’s Barra Base has a long history of providing fishing safaris in the Northern Territory.

Our boat is a locally made Raysea and has been custom built to suit the local conditions. Not only is it a comfortable 7.8 meters long with seating for 6 people, but it also has a 250hp Yamaha engine, live bait tanks and all the technology you need to locate your next prize Barramundi. We have also decked it out with a canopy and eskies to ensure your food and beverages are kept fresh and cold for a hard days fishing.

To ensure the ultimate catch, we provide you with the latest fishing gear, such as Shimano rods & reels, lures and plenty of advice.
