|Welcome to Gove Sports Fishing & Diving. Our business operates out of Nhulunbuy, Gove and offers a variety of fishing charters. This area is one of the least fished in Australia and can offer you the most unique experience of this pristine part of Australia. We can cater our packages to ensure your adventure is a once in a life time experience. We have plenty of local knowledge so will take you to the best fishing spots but if you have researched the area we will sit down with you to plan your fishing adventure!|
The types of fish you can expect to catch include Barramundi Cod, Mackerel, Coral Trout, Red Emperor, Golden Snapper, Jew Fish and Queenfish. If you want to angle for Sail Fish or Marlin, let us know and we can make sure we take you to the best fishing areas for these fish and provide the best tackle and equipment for this type of trip.
Our fishing charters range from half day to 7 days. If you are just passing through Nhulunbuy, Gove we can take you to the immediate local fishing areas for a half or full day fishing charter. If you have more time, please consider our multi-day fishing safaris – we offer two types – one where you fish each day from Nhulunbuy, Gove Peninsula to our ultimate and most unique offering where you spend each night on our exclusive beachside campsite retreat on Wigram Island (sunset on Wigram Island is pictured left).
When staying on Wigram Island you are on the doorstep of the Wessell Islands, English Company Islands, and Bromby Island – these are the best fishing areas in Australia and staying on Wigram Island means less travel time and more fishing time! Your catches can be frozen each day so you can take them home with you at the end of your trip. Our staff are also happy to take one or two of your fresh catches and prepare a scrumptious evening meal.
A Wigram Island retreat can include fly fishing or beach fishing, or alternatively you can take a day off to explore the island, do some snorkelling or just relax by the beachside reading a good book. In the evening explore the high tide for the turtles or just sit back listening to good music and sharing good conversations with friends.
Whatever you are looking for we are happy to accommodate. Please take time to explore our website – it describes our charters and safaris and shows you where we fish. We also have plenty of photos to show you the catch that could be yours!
