This little island adventure has more wild life, bird life and fishing than the Amazon. The scenery is unspoilt. The accommodation is basic but very comfortable and clean. Mick, the chef can cook Barra and Jacks many different ways and to perfection every time. Mark Bomm, our guide had excellent knowledge and was accommodating with whatever we wanted to do. It is remote but a treasure. We took our Mum with us as it was in their bucket list before Dad dies and she loves fishing. Mum (75) was the ringer of the boat catching the largest Barra. Unfortunately Mum came down with a wog and only had one day fishing. Marcia and Juliana made sure she was comfortable and gave her medication to help. They could not do enough for her. Goose Creek had the most beautiful scenery, unsurpassed. You are in the boat from dawn till 4.50-5pm. Take the advise of the clothing and hat required because the boats are designed for easy fishing. The guides at the lodge are happy to share their best photo's and go pro footage. These guys are good at their job. If you enjoy fishing and nature, I would recommend a couple of days to see this part of the world before the Amazon. closeup and personal. Liz and Bevan.
