Extended safaris on board the Mother Ship are designed best for keen anglers to fish the remote untouched rivers and experience explosive Barramundi fishing with professional guides. Safaris will venture to Moyle River, Little Moyle River, Mini Mini system, Marry River, Anson Bay Creeks and Melville Island and more. Extended Mother Ship safaris are available during the months of February - May (the “run off” period) and September - December (the “build up” for wet season).
'Run off' period is the time of the year when the wet season monsoon rains have finished and the fresh water is running off the wetlands pouring a lot of food into the main river for the hungry Barramundi.
'Build up' period is the time of year all big Barramundi gather in numbers at the mouth of Big Rivers such as Marry, Moyle and Little Moyle and get ready for spawning season.
