We offer Live aboard Mother ship safaris at Mini Mini system/Marry River, Moyle River/Little Moyle River, Anson bay Creeks & many more. Our extended mother ship safaris are operational during the month of Feb/Mar/Apr/May which coincides with the “RUN OFF” Period and during Sep/Oct/Nov which coincides with “BUILD UP” for wet season


RUN OFF period, this time of the year, the wet season monsoon rains are over and the fresh water goes over the wetlands, to bring a lot of food into the main river for the hungry Barra. You will experience substantial fishing during the RUN OFF period. Also, this period is ideal for executing Million Dollar Fish event.

BUILD UP period, this time of year all big barramundi gather in numbers at the mouth of our favorite rivers such as Moyle & little Moyle and get ready for spawning season.
