Dirk Hartog Island

Anchorage is in the south passage at the south end of Dirk Hartog Island. Depending on the weather conditions, you can slowly make your way to the north end of the island to the Cape Inscription Lighthouse.

You can walk to Cape Inscription and see where Captain Dirk Hartog landed in 1616.

Fishing in this area usually targets pelagic species such as Spanish mackerel, tuna, and trevally. If conditions are right you could do some bottom bouncing and hope for a pink snapper or three.

Steaming overnight from Dirk Hartog Island will get you to Bateman Bay where the small township of Coral Bay lies.
