Just did a week on a mothership fishing trip. Glenn was one of our guides. Our group of 8 were all very impressed with Glenn's professionalism and the way he conducts himself.Could not recommend Barefoot and Glenn more highly and we are all looking forward to being guided by him again. Love your work !

My girlfriend got me a full day of fishing for my birthday and it was such an awesome day.

Went with a friend of mine, there was one other person one the boat. Nice size boat; big enough for comfort but small enough to get up the estuaries chasing Barra. Got a couple of little Barra (my first) and some nice mackerel and tuna!!

Glenn is a class act. Outstanding operator. Awesome knowledge and personable character. Great conversation.

Looking forward to the next trip!

Had a great days fly fishing with Glen from Barefoot Fishing Safaris around the Shoal Bay Area. Managed my first Barra on Fly 😃. Glenn had great knowledge of the area and the tactics needed to catch Barra on fly. I would recommend anyone looking for a guide based in Darwin to get in touch with Glenn.

Highly recommend Glenn and the Barefoot fishing safari. We spent the day fishing in various locations chasing the school of fish, and then pulled up our mud crab nets. Glenn filletted the fish and cleaned the mud crabs for us. Overall was a good time had by all, would recommend

We took a group of 8 kids out in two boats for a half day tour in anticipation we would catch mud crabs and do a bit of fishing. Glenn and Simone were fantastic with the kids. Everyone went away very happy and hoping to come back. Check claw on this crab we caught. Highly recommend and hope to comeback again.

Spent the day out with my best mate (who has never fished before) and Watty. Had a fantastic time, he was so patient and was a great teacher. She got her first fish and was so happy. Would definitely recommend anyone to have a go Barefoot.

Had a fantastic day fishing for Barra and whatever else came our way. Caught my first (and second) Barra ever and plenty of other fish. Glenn is a great bloke and excellent guide. Every part of it was great. Met three mad blokes from Melbourne and had a ball. Lots of laughs and excellent fishing. Even without the fish the scenery and massive crocs made the day worthwhile!! 👍👍🍺

3 mates and I flew up from Perth for a 4 day mix trip with Glenn.

He was a fantastic host and good company, as well as arranging for us to be fed and watered and slicing up perfect sashimi and numus, each day. He was very tolerant of our modest fishing skills.

The weather was great and we went offshore for the first couple of days catching fantastic, coral trout, golden snapper and black dhufish, as well as hunting (successfully) tuna and mackerel, in crystal clear flat water. It was a lot of fun.

It was terrific going up the creeks as the tides improved for barra, although the change of season storm the night before slowed them up a bit, we still caught a few, and had a wonderful time, enjoying the fishing, the company, the birdlife, the scenery and a few quiet beverages.

We will be back next year and in the meantime we highly recommend Glenn as guide to anyone who wants to experience the joys of the Territory.

Thanks so much Gary, loved seeing you again. Glad you had a good time. I’ve matched the amazing victory point wines you left with a sand palms steak and they are soo good. Don’t be too scared to bring the girls next year, they might be able to teach us all a few tips! Be great to see you again next year!

Had an absolutely fantastic trip with a few mates. Glen was an awesome guide with a good sense of humour. Worked hard to put us on fish and his depth of knowledge and willingness to pass on tips was outstanding. I learnt a great deal from just watching and listening. Looking forward to getting back for another trip.

Had a great day with Watty and some other experienced guests, Pete, Trevor and Barry. I’m a novice and Watty was a very patient teacher and a great guide. The boys smashed some big dogs today. I would highly recommend this operation for a beginner to the very experienced.
