Family Fishing

For adventurous families, this is a great way to learn how to fish – Northern Territory style!

Designed for newbies and young people, this full-day fishing adventure is intended to be easy and fun and takes place in Shady Camp on the Mary River. We fish the freshwater side of the river, where there is an abundance of Barramundi, Bream and Catfish. You will also get the opportunity to do some wildlife spotting along the way, as there are plenty of fresh and saltwater crocodiles in these parts!

Our experienced guide will help you prepare your lures, show you how to cast and ensure fun is had by all. Your fishing equipment is provided, so all you need to bring is your hat, sunscreen and loose, long-sleeved clothing.

We also include plenty of healthy snacks to keep everyone happy and cold drinks in our onboard fridge so you can stay hydrated.  Enjoy comfortable cushioned seats and overhead shade.
