Tour Overview

We have been exploring wadable flats in this far northern stretch of reef over the last couple of years and we are confident that this fishery will stand strong against some of the well know established destinations around the world today. The eastern Cape York peninsular is one of the most remote stretches of coastline with almost zero coastal inhabitancy north of Cooktown all the way to the tip of Australia. Walking the east coast flats really has the feel that no other flat does. We will be taking groups of six anglers to join us to walk these untouched flats in search for the ever-abundant species we have found such as Permit, Blue Bastards, Chinaman, GT’s and amongst these primary suspects there is a list of other targets we will have the opportunity to get a shot at. These trips are aimed at the angler who primarily wants to wade as there will be limited boat/skiff fishing available. We will have one local experienced fly guide per pair of anglers and we will have the opportunity to fish multiple flats during your trip to ensure the best opportunity for you to stick that beast you have been looking for. We will have two 23ft centre consoles available to transport us to the flats where we will be fishing for the day. 

 

At the end of the day we will return to our luxury mothership Savannah, an 80ft luxury Expedition vessel with three very comfortable staterooms. The views in the afternoon from the sundeck are priceless after a day’s fishing with a cold beverage and a great social lounge in the main salon. You will be greeted with canapés on return from your days fishing followed by a sit down two course meal to end the day.
