Floating Accommodation :: Run Off Barra Fishing

The run off after the wet season is famous for big Barramundi action, and if you choose to fish the King tides you won't be disappointed! We also fish the Neap tides where you'll be able to target a huge variety of fish including Barramundi, Black Jewfish, Threadfin Salmon, Golden Snapper, Queenfish and Giant Trevally to name a few...

The Location

You'll be fishing the mighty South Alligator River, the picturesque East Alligator River, Merganella Creek, Salt Water Creek, as well as Barron and Field Islands...
During your charter the Tropic Paradise is anchored in the calm waters of Coopers Creek, to ensure utmost client comfort.

Fishing Boats

You will fish out of fully guided customised sport fishing boats all around the 6.5 metre mark. Boats are capable of fishing up to 4 people comfortably. Pricing is based on how many per boat so you can choose to fish 2,3 or 4 people per guided boat.

Your Accommodation

Tropic Paradise is a purpose built accommodation vessel giving you a home away from home on the water. All cabins are located on the main deck, have large windows for natural ventilation as well as air-conditioning and built in cupboards. There are 4 cabins with household size double bunks and 2 cabins with a double and single bed and ensuite.  Other bathrooms are located on deck, one on the rear main deck and another on the upper level opening to the rear deck. .....>more info

Getting There

We pick you up in Darwin and travel in air conditioned Landcruiser comfort to the South Alligator River boat ramp. From there we travel downstream by boat to the mouth of the South, then across to Coopers Creek to meet up with the Tropic Paradise. We then jump aboard, settle in, and wake up the next day ready to start fishing!


Breakfast & dinners are held aboard the Tropic Paradise, prepared for you with plenty of fresh fish and mudcrabs. Lunches are provided during the days fishing along with cool drinks and water. Please inform us of any dietary requirements and we will be happy to tailor meals to suit.

Alcohol is not included, however we are happy for you to pre-order your requirements (at your own expense) and we will ensure that it is all on ice aboard the Tropic Paradise, waiting for you to celebrate your catch!


Most charters are 7 days/6 nights, although this may vary as trips are tide dependant. Each trip requires approximately a half day travel there and back, so a trip spanning 7 days/6 nights gives you 5 full days on the water, plus a half days travel each way.
