As a general rule, we have a fishing session each day on our regular scheduled sea safaris. There are many different forms of fishing available to us along the Kimberely Coast with such a huge variety of habitats. Tropical estuarine habitats such as the Walcott Inlet provide fantastic Barramundi (Lates calcarifer) fishing to barra enthusiasts. The many fringing reefs around the islands, mainland and rock outcrops provide great spots for "bottom bouncing' for fish such as the Saddle-tailed Seaperch (Lutjanus malabaricus), the Fingermark Perch (Lutjanus johnii) and the Bluelined Emperor (Lethrinus laticaudis).
Occasionally, when the opportunity presents itself, we set the trawl lines in the hope of catching a Spanish Mackerel or Queenfish. The Northern bluefin Tuna are schooling and feeding along the coast in July / August and give a great fight.
The crew gives a demonstration on how to use a rod and reel and provide assistance to guests whilst fishing. All filleting and cleaning of the fish is done in expert fashion by the crew. We have a "fun" fishing competition each trip and it is the 1st Mate's responsibility to choose the best fisherperson of the tour.
For fishing enthusiasts that want to fish all day, it is best to get a group together and exclusively charter Mahalo II. We are able to tailor make fishing itineraries for group charters.
We have 3 tenders available for creek and barra fishing to allow for comfortable fishing excursions.
