GALLEY REACH Full Day Fishing Charter

All in all it is a great fun day out on the water. No guarantees that you’ll land a black bass, but, your expert local guide will try his best and you’ll be taken to all the hot spots (local knowledge counts).

We will arrange to have you picked up from our our hotel (the Holiday Inn)  after an early breakfast and dropped back after your fishing adventure.   On all one day fishing charters  at Galley Reach, up to 4 rivers can be used which are decided upon on the day depending on tide and weather conditions. All these rivers produce quality PNG Black Bass, Barramundi, Finger Mark, Mangrove Jack and Trevally. Techniques used include top water casting, divers (casting and trolling) and live baiting (tilapia).

To get there we drive between 40-90 minutes from Port Moresby and launch from village ramp sites that have been specially set up with the local communities. Arrange your lunch and drinks the night before with the catering staff at the Holiday Inn and eskies and ice will be provided to keep your lunch and drinks cold.

From AUD $325* per person.
Prices are subject to change. Please contact us for current pricing.

Wild River Fishing Testimonial

“Within an easy distance from Port Moresby, the Galley Reach area is a fishing gem. Because of the mass of water area and the fairly light fishing pressure you can be assured of plenty of uninterrupted water, in the large or small rivers, the creeks or the wide open spaces. The area is home to a great range of fish species and fishing styles. Everything from Black Bass, Barramundi and Mangrove Jack to Fingermark, Bream and even GT’s. And some of them are BIG and they all will give you the sporting fight you are looking for. If you want to troll, cast or live bait you can do it all. And as an added bonus, the scenery is just gorgeous.”

  3. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Ie.

    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let
    you know. The design and style look great though!
    Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Kudos

  4. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally,
    it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.

    You definitely know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting
    videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  5. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a coworker who
    was conducting a little research on this.
    And he actually ordered me breakfast simply because I discovered it for him…

    lol. So let me reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending time to discuss this
    issue here on your web site.

  6. For newest news you have to go to see world wide web and
    on the web I found this website as a most excellent website for
    hottest updates.

  7. Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
    Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I
    can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking
    about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?

  8. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded
    this onto a co-worker who had been doing a little homework on this.
    And he in fact bought me lunch simply because I found
    it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanx for spending some time to talk about this issue here on your blog.

  9. naturally like your web site however you need to test the spelling on quite a few of
    your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I
    in finding it very bothersome to tell the reality
    then again I will surely come back again.

  10. When some one searches for his vital thing, so he/she wishes to be available that in detail, so that thing is maintained over here.

  11. This is the right site for everyone who would like to understand this topic.
    You understand so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that
    I really would want to…HaHa). You definitely put a fresh spin on a subject that’s been written about for ages.
    Wonderful stuff, just excellent!

  12. Howdy! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My blog looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share. With thanks!

  13. Nice blog here! Also your website loads up fast!
    What host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link to your host?
    I wish my website loaded up as quickly as yours

  14. I believe everything said made a bunch of sense. However,
    what about this? suppose you were to write a awesome title?
    I am not suggesting your content is not good., however suppose you added a title to maybe grab people’s attention? I mean Wild River
    Fishing from Port Moresby – Kokoda Trail Treks is a little boring.
    You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create article headlines
    to grab viewers to open the links. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two
    to get readers excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it
    might bring your posts a little livelier.

  15. You’re so cool! I don’t think I have read through a
    single thing like that before. So nice to discover another person with original thoughts on this subject.
    Seriously.. many thanks for starting this up.
    This web site is one thing that is needed on the web,
    someone with a bit of originality!

  16. Have you ever considered writing an e-book or guest
    authoring on other websites? I have a blog based upon on the same ideas you discuss and would really like to have you share some
    stories/information. I know my viewers would enjoy your work.

    If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an email.

    the posts I realized it’s new to me. Anyways, I’m certainly delighted
    I came across it and I’ll be bookmarking it and checking back frequently!

  19. My programmer is trying to convince me to move
    to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on several websites
    for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard very good things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be really appreciated!

  20. Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted
    to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would
    be enormously appreciated!

  21. I am extremely impressed together with your writing talents as well
    as with the layout for your weblog. Is this a paid subject or did you customize it your self?

    Either way stay up the nice quality writing,
    it’s rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays..

  22. You actually make it seem so easy along with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be really something that I feel I would by
    no means understand. It sort of feels too complicated and very broad for me.
    I am having a look forward for your subsequent post, I will try to get the hold of it!

  23. Someone essentially lend a hand to make seriously posts I would state.
    That is the very first time I frequented your web page and up to now?
