Just had a week on the Eclipse from Horn Island up to Boigu and Saibai Islands with nine other enthusiast birders. The boat was comfortable, the food was delicious and the crew amazing. Joe and Jack happily ferried us around in the dingies looking for the special birds of these northern Australian islands. Bianca and trainee crew member Phoebe and top cook Meg were terrific. Highly recommended.

A fantastic week on Eclipse where we felt like we were living in a national geographic marine park with so much marine life from crocs to sharks and a huge variety of species in between.
We caught and released over 24 species all on the fly.
The food was fabulous,fresh,healthy,tasty and delicious and I own restaurants so I know and love good food.
It was a very happy boat with good energy and a great couple running the operation .
Will be back for more

Just got back from a week fishing out of Weipa on board the Eclipse FNQ. We did in conjunction with Weipa Sports Fishing. Joe, Bianca and crew looked after us like you could not believe. The meals were amazing and the sleeping was comfortable. A nice hot shower after a hectic days fishing was always tops.It was sensational kicking back upstairs on deck and bragging with the boys about the days fishing with some refreshments. We did some amazing fishing with tenders off the boat in the gulf and up the rivers.If you are looking for a great big fish experience then the Eclipse as a mothership is the way to go.

My wife and I joined 6 friends on the Eclipse in April for a fly fishing adventure and spent 6 nights on board. We would have stayed 6 more, time permitting. I cannot say enough good things about owners Joe and Bianca. The rooms were cool and clean. Bianca delivered spectacular and imaginative meals that included more than one could expect or even hope for. Joe could not have made us feel more welcome and can fix most anything that runs. The fishing guides were not only "fishy", but warm and knowledgeable. On top of all that, the fishing was great - varied in both species and types of waters to fish. We count ourselves quite lucky to have had the good fortune to have discovered Eclipse FNQ.

I enjoyed excellent saltwater fly fishing on board the Eclipse FNQ in the warm waters of Cape York. The entire experience; fishing, guides, food, equipment and accommodation were top notch. The fishing was excellent and varied with plenty of fish and a wide diversity of species caught. Joe and Bianca run a smooth, quality operation on-board the Eclipse. I look forward to doing this trip again.
