A great and unique part of the Cannon adventure is the focus our chef and the business has on local produce and food from the region.
We like to educate and allow our guests an opportunity to learn about new foods and local treats. You will be blown away by the highest level of service and meals you will have on our mothership. It is part of the lasting memories of the Cannon Experience.
The MV Cannon was built in 2002 and launched in 2003. The MV Cannon is a 75ft Westcoaster charter vessel specialty built to operate throughout Northern Territory and Western Australian waterways.
Cannon Charters was established in 2003 by NSW businessman, Brian Hanlon and then taken over by husband and wife Fishing Enthusiasts, Dave and Deb Sharp. Based in Perth WA, Dave and Deb have been running the family business for 20 years, manufacturing wall frames and roof trusses at The Truss Factory. In addition to this, Dave runs a small building company that specialises in Kit homes. Having traveled extensively around Australia, it was during 1989, whist in Darwin when their passion for fishing first began. All their spare time was spent exploring rivers and creeks with their trusty Land-Rover and a roof mounted tinny. It is this passion that has lead them to the MV Cannon and wanting to share some of these amazing experiences with the rest of the world.Cannon Charters has been accredited with the Australian Tourism Accreditation Program since 2006 and are dedicated to providing a high level of customer service and professionalism throughout the operation.
In 2007, 2008 and 2009 Cannon Charters won the Northern Territory Brolga Tourism Award for excellence in the category of Adventure Tourism. Winning a Brolga award is the industry’s highest accolade and the recipients represent the best products and services in the Northern Territory.
