Extreme Diversity in Fish Species Off the Coast of Exmouth
The waters around Exmouth offer an incredibly diverse fishery. On the flats inside Ningaloo Reef, trophy bonefish, permit, golden trevally, and giant trevally can be caught within a couple of miles of the deep water beyond the reef where sailfish and marlin can be teased on the fly. A short distance away on the other side of North West Cape, the shallow waters of Exmouth Gulf offer vast flats, mangrove-lined creeks, small islands, and coral shoals.
Approximately 1200 km north of Perth, daily flights land at Leamonth airport and anglers regularly book 7 nights/5-day fishing trips, using lay days to capitalize on the best weather and fishing conditions.

This is one of our most family-friendly destinations and an incredible location to sample the wild west of Australia.
