Have just returned from 3 amazing days with CFS, took three fishing novice mates along to celebrate my 50th and could not speak highly enough about the Cobourg experience and the entire team. It was terrific service and faultless hospitality from the very first email I sent to the very last after I returned. The team at the camp are exemplary, Chef Dave's cooking was first class, Travis ran the camp in an extremely professional and friendly manner, nothing was too much trouble and we really appreciated Matt’s patience and willingness as our guide on the water to educate the fishing newbies and constantly put them on top quality fish. I've fished with a number of similar fishing tours, and must say the seamless arrangements is what sets this team above all others and leaves a lasting impression. So, while we went with the thought it would be a ‘once in a lifetime experience’ we all can't wait to return!!

So glad you FINALLY got to celebrate your milestone with us! It means a lot to everyone involved to get this feedback and know we are making people's "once in a lifetime experience" great! Or as you said, maybe it will be more than "once in a lifetime"?!? Looking forward to seeing you back in the boat soon!

Travelled from Tassie to do a 4 day adventure with my 15 y.o son. Looking for some quality bonding time after a crazy +12 months with the COVID situation we are all in. Both of us have a love for fishing but have not experienced anything like the 4 days we had a Cobourg Fishing Safaris. The entire team at the camp are amazing, Travis is an amazing skipper and guide, I suspect he is part fish. Every whereTravis took us, we basically fished to exhaustion. My son and I had a 'wish' catch list, after the 4 days we had ticked everything off. After my son landed a 120cm GT on day to 2, you could not wipe the smile off his face. We caught Barra, Mangrove Jack, GTs, Mackeral, Queen fish, Coral trout, Golden snapper.... ooohh the list goes on. After a day of fishing to exhaustion, nothing beats grabbing a couple of cold beers heading to the sunset shower to cool and wind down, followed by the amazing food. It starts with the canapes to watch the sun go down followed by 5star food for dinner. This was a bucket list trip for my son and I.... all we have to do now is persuade the minister for Fun, Finance and Affairs to allow us to do it again. Could not recommend it enough, from the comms with Aaron when booking, to wiping the tears away as we boarded the plane back to Darwin, it was the best holiday ever.

Just had a fantastic fishing charter out at Cobourg with three mates from SA for 5 nights and four full days fishing. The fishing was epic with heaps of species caught and some great fun with the sharks . Fishing guide Travis was exceptional and he had plenty of practice on his rig making and had great knowledge of the local area . The food was five star and the camp was a tropical paradise will certainly be booking another trip with these guys

Half day tour and it was the best day out. We had a great half hour of fishing frenzy on the way. Travis was very informative about everything regarding the settlement. Even though it was hard going on such a hot day would highly recommend this trip to everyone.

We joined the tour for a day trip only from our campsite in the national park at Garig Gunak Barlu (Coburg peninsula). It seems it is rare to get this chance so we grabbed it. There are only 6 seats on the boat so very personalised. The itinerary was to fish in different locations until the sharks found us and took our fish, then we would move on to another hot spot. We caught an amazing amount of fish and fantastic diversity. I’m mot a fishing person but I had a ball. Then to visit Victoria settlement and do a 3-4 km walk there. I’m a bit scared of boat trips as I’ve had some bad experiences as you don’t know the skipper and standards etc. But Travis the skipper and tour guide was a highlight, like super man even. His knowledge, passion and respect for the area was incredible. He worked tirelessly changing rigs, filleting your fish, answering questions etc etc. unbelievable. Highly recommend this tour!
