Bucaneer 2015

Another awesome Bucaneer Archipelgo trip done, and what a trip!

 

Went much further this year 800+kms. All the way to the Sale and Glenelg river.With stopovers in silvergull,3 ways, ruby falls,kinfisher and sleeping in the Montogery reef for a night with all the sharks rushing over the reef to get in to the hole. What a sight. A quick swim in the whole to see schools of 60cm plus jacks, trout and everything you can imagine.

 

From charging Hammerheads,tigers,crocs to 100kg+ unstoppable gropers, fresh water barra, salt water barra and all the usual jacks,trout,fingermark,queenies etc etc. No record fish caught but plenty even though the fishing was hard in 12knot + tides.

 

Enjoy the pictures(more to come)

 And looked like a top trip. 

How long did the trip go for? What was the total cost per man?

Looked at doing similar but costs were calculated as too much..:(

We went for 8 nights which is a good time!

 

Total cost per person didnt really work it out to be honest but it would have been between 1200-1500ish. This was on a Private boat that my cuz has in Broome. I believe on a charter its around the 8-10k mark!

 Wow even at the top end of $1500 that is pretty good value. 

We had the added expence of getting a large boat from Perth up to there. Only 4 blokes and our alcohol expence was calculated to 1/3 of your total each..Lol

Looking forward to seeing the rest of the photo's.

Looked like an awesome trip, thinking of doing something similar in a couple of years time.

How big were the boats, and how many people did you fit on each of them?
