Deep Sea Fishing

Catch your own dinner!

This tour gives you the chance to try deep sea fishing or exercise your patience and strength while waiting for the big catch! We do trolling fishing as well as bottom fishing. Fishing by trolling is moving boats drag one or more fishing lines or nets behind them to provide a more realistic and lifelike target as bait. Especially in the morning hours, trolling is highly successful. Your guide will be there to assist you with your catch.

Important Notes
  • The Team will give their best to get you on the best spot for fishing, but please understand that there is no guarantee to have a catch as wildlife cannot be planned
  • The Indian Ocean can be a little bit choppy sometimes . If you tend to get sea sick, we advise you to take seasick pills 1 hour before getting on the boat
What to see?

You can catch Grouper, Snapper Emperor and Bonefish near the coast. A little further away there is a good chance to catch Indian mackerel, Spanish mackerel, Seerfish, Kingfish, Barracuda, Barramundi, Jackfish, Trevally and Tuna.
