The best thing to do is to google ...."boat hire Darwin". There are plenty of boats to hire. Anything from $250 to $500 a day. Minimum will be 4.5 meter. Work out exactly when you want it and how many will use it. Tides play a big role if fishing the Daly. There is also the tidal bore that could affect your day out too.
Look at the prices and then ring the owners. Definitely get a 4 stroke motor. both for quietness and fuel economy. Ask the owner about fishing the Daly as well. You will never beat local knowledge
It would probably be a good idea to set up camp at the Daly a couple of days before you actually fish. This way you will info from fellow campers and also if the fish have shut down (and they do!!), then you can plan another attack.

Good luck and tight lines

Depending when you go, distances to fishy areas can be quite large.
Maybe worthwhile to consider charter as an option.
I went with Andrew Darby at Banyan Farm, and was one of my most enjoyable fishing days. When I looked into it, it was the economical option, and he lives there and knows the river.
No affiliation etc, just a very happy punter.

Good advice
When fishing in new areas I like to use charters or hire a guide

Local knowledge is everything!

I have fished the top end with charters and caught personnel bests and are some of my best fishing memories. I have mates that have gone to the same areas with their own boat and had sausages for dinner

We have hired a boat at the Mango farm which is also a good place to stay. However the Daly is not a easy river to fish unless you are familiar with it.I agree with previous posts, hire a guide. You will learn a lot and stay safe and may even catch a metre plus Barra.
