Was lucky enough to spend another 3 days at Clearwater Island Lodge. What an experience! Had a warm welcome from host Kerri followed by an delicious meal of fresh Barramundi, stir fry and salad. The fishing was excellent (as always) and our guide Lynton has the gift of putting us on fish with ease, he also gave me some invaluable tips about how and where to present lures for each of the targeted fish. Cannot wait to get back there and make more memories! 10/10

Sailing past with family and stayed at the Clearwater Island Lodge. Outstanding hosts and food. Can’t stop raving about the hospitality offered by Michael, Kerri and the family. Such a beautiful location with more to offer than just awesome fishing, but that was of top quality as well Dinner was absolutely outstanding and we have to apologise to Kerri and Michael for our out of tune sing along to ‘My island home’. #noregrets. Not my first time at the lodge, and won’t be the last either. Very unique part of the world.

From the moment you arrive Michael and Kerri make you extremely welcome, with no request ever a problem, it is all about giving you a fishing holiday of a lifetime. And once you meet the Fishing Guides and you start fishing it really is the fishing holiday you can only dream of as the Guides know all the best spots to catch fish. The fishing is just magnificent in the estuaries and rivers, catching so many different species of the area, and bringing home the largest barramundi, mangrove jacks and mud crabs that are then cooked into a seafood feast for dinner. As an added bonus you get to see crocodiles in there natural environment and some even close up if they decide to attach one of your freshly caught fish as you are reeling them in. A very highly recommended fishing trip for both the novice and experienced fishers.

Michael and Kerri are fantastic hosts and they have a great team of experienced and friendly guides that are very patient and helpful for every level of fishing expertise.
