The crew did a great job, getting us on the fish and worked hard to maximize fishing time by removing fish quickly and sorting out any snags and tangles without delay. Despite rough seas, the boat coped well and was comfortable. After finally landing a massive Jewfish after 25+ years of trying – I can highly recommend these guys for a top fishing experience!
Had great time… staff went out of their way to find fish.. and thats what a fishing charter should be… food was excellent… lived up to all my expectations… congrats to all… cheers Raoul
This is our second trip out with Arafura Bluewater Charters. Loved the first one so much we did it again. Another great day fishing. Skipper and crew were great and very helpful as I am not a seasoned angler. Fished in several spots for the day. Moved when the fish went off the bite. Food was great. Fishing was great. Water was great. We’ll be back. Highly recommended. Ensure you take an esky or similar the put your catch in for the trip home. They put your catch in a plastic bag with ice which is great but need something to put it in for the trip home. We kept our largest fish and the rest were divided up among the rest of the anglers to take home. Everyone left with a big bag of fish.
I had the pleasure of going on a full day charter on Wai Tui with Dan and Lex. Both of the crew were extremely professional and guided us onto a variety of fish throughout the day, which included a shark of around 80 – 90kg which was a p.b. for me. Thank you ARAFURA for a most enjoyable day.
If it is fishing you want do not hesitate to book with Arafura. We had a 3 day charter and caught nearly 17 kgs of fillets – yes fillets not fish – each. So many species. The skipper Al was amazing and made sure we understood why he enforced the bag limits for each species. These guys offer 1/2 and full day charters as well and we will not use anyone else in Darwin from now on – yes we are locals.
Second time we have gone fishing with Arafura Bluewater Charters. November 2017 (full day) and also April 2018 (half day). Both times, we had a great day out on the water, and successfully caught lots of fish. The skipper and he’s deckie were knowledgeable, professional and friendly. We would highly recommend this tour whether it be half day or full day.
THIS IS A MUST! We took a full day tour with Skipper Ben & the hardest working legend Ash who were champions! If you are in Darwin, book with these legends! I have booked so many charters in so many places but these guys know the spots! We had bagged out by 11am! World class with world class legends who care for their clients. Kudos Ben & Ash!
