Fine people, Great food & a gazillion fish! My group of 6 could not be happier with every aspect of our week on Eclipse. Our guides Lee and Jack are absolute pros with great boats and gear and are fun AF.. they put us on fish without exception every day. Our mothership crew Bianca and Joe are tge sort of peeps you want as BFFs... they run a tight ship and have smiles that don't stop. We will be back.

Absolutely exceeded our expectations - Love River (5 nights - 4 days fishing) Our group of 6 look for an outstanding fishing charter experience each year. The crew of Eclipse and fishing guides from Weipa Sports Fishing were absolutely professional in every aspect. The guides were personable, extremely knowledgeable and had a genuine care for the area, its people and sustainable fishing along with boats and equipment that were top class. (They had lots of different fishing options and we lost count of the amount of fish caught and different varieties we came across). The Eclipse boat was well equipped and maintained, comfortable and very clean. The staff looked us with genuine care and the food aboard was like eating in a restaurant. Thank you Eclipse FNQ Charters & Weipa Sports Fishing for unforgettable trip. We will definitely be coming back again and would highly recommend to others! Matt, Gavin, Anthony, Chris, Rob & David

Friendly crew with brilliant food. I spent one week aboard Eclipse FNQ on a bird watching trip with 10 fellow birders. We all had a great time and was able to see a good range of birds in the Torres Strait.

Torres Strait birding tour We spent a week on board on a birdwatching tour in the Torres Strait. The crew were truly professional and looked after us extremely well. The food was delicious and the chef catered for dietary restrictions. Nothing was too much trouble! We thoroughly recommend them.

Remote Sports Fishing in Luxury We joined the Eclipse for 5 days sports fishing in the Love River fishing with Lee, Jack and Deano from Weipa Sportsfishing. Bianca and Shelley from the Eclipse made us feel genuinely welcome on board and provided the best live-aboard experience I have had. Comfortable air conditioned accommodation, hot showers at the end of hard days fishing and a spacious entertainment area with million dollars views. Best of all was the restaurant quality meals. B’s culinary creativity was amazing. We were there for the fishing and Lee and his team didn’t let us down. There was plenty of variety with all forms of fishing on offer both in the river and offshore. I highly recommend guided fishing if you want to find the fish and then know how to target them without second guessing. The fishing passion and knowledge of Jack and Deano was amazing and our crew ticked off many personal bests. Many thanks for an excellent week.

Barra fishing heaven Just back from Love River. Caught way more fish than I could possibly have imagined. The guides Lee, Jack, Dean we’re lovely guys with a wealth of experience (and patience for us less experienced). Bianca and Shelly were fantastic crew and hosts- the food was restaurant quality, and just kept coming!! It was a very memorable experience and one I will look back on fondly.

Joe and crew - salt of the earth Went in a group of 5 on the Eclipse. Joe (& Bianca) had pulled together an awesome chef (Dean Lewis) and Lee and Jack from Weipa Sports Fishing. Together with a bumper barramundi season and awesome weather, you just couldn't order a nicer bunch of guys, amazing food, fun times and yes, the team did get a 1.12m Barra. Joe makes you feel very welcome and was an amazing host. Even if you're on the Eclipse for something other than fishing, you'll have a great time. Make sure you pack a Fedora (hat) - Joe likes them around ;-)

Amazinf Barra fishing Was superb on my first trip and this one was even better. Amazing food by supremo Chef Dean, exceptional guiding by Lee and Jack, and great orginization and service by Joe, as always. This trip is too good to do only twice, so will now book for next year, and all the years, thereafter, as long as I can fish.
