Fishing Safaris at Sal Salis

With the continental shelf only a few kilometres offshore, Ningaloo Reef is a spectacular and diverse fishing destination.

Game and Bill-Fish Fishing

Ningaloo Reef is recognised as the premier game fishing destination in Western Australia.  Few places in the world offer the ability to hook famous species such as Black, Blue and Stripped Marlin, Spanish Mackerel, Giant Trevally, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo and Sailfish regularly.

Ningaloo Reef is also one of the few places worldwide where one can catch such a variety and abundance of billfish species throughout all 12 months of the year.

Reef Fishing

Ningaloo Reef is a fisherman’s playground with some of the most sought after reef fishing species on offer. Wrestle with Coral Trout, Red Emperor, North West Snapper, Groper and much more. The coral reef is located only 100 metres off shore at its nearest point and less than seven kilometres at its furthest. Anglers on the Ningaloo Reef catch an abundance of reef fish year round.

Bone and Fly Fishing

A short distance from the camp and outside the National park, the coastal shallows provide the best conditions for Australia’s only bone-fish fishery. The reef forms a giant lagoon with extensive shallow sand flats and crystal clear water.

As the water warms up from late September through the summer and autumn, the Permit turn up on the Bone-fish flats in bigger numbers. There are no other flats in Australia where you can cast at Bone-fish and Permit,  expecting to catch either!

We will be happy to book full and half day fishing charters from Sal Salis; to ensure we have a boat &  guide available please arrange fishing at the time of booking your accommodation.  Please note if you would like to fly fish you will need to either bring your own gear with you or have us book a local bone-fishing expert.

We are committed to the sustainable fishing practice of catch and release.
