Game Fishing Full Day Charter

This 8 to 9 hour charter gives you a full day of game fishing in Vanuatu. Port Vila has some amazing game fishing just a short boat ride out of the harbour. Black marlin, striped marlin, pacific blue marlin, spearfish, sailfish, mahimahi, wahoo, dog toothed and yellow fin tuna are all encountered in our waters. The waters in Vanuatu are deep and we have some great canyons and drop offs – favourite hang outs for Blue Marlin. There are also a number of FAD (fish aggregating devises) that we can use. Catering for all anglers from the most experienced chasing that elusive record to the complete novice, the most experienced crew in Vanuatu and can give expert tuition. Holders of 5 world records and over 50 Vanuatu records proves we are the best in the game!

We cater for many styles of fishing such as bait and switch, deep sea jigging, popper fishing and saltwater fly fishing. Whether you prefer stand-up heavy tackle fishing or fighting from our game chairs, we are more than happy to accommodate your requests. Once you have booked you will be able to liaise with skippers Charles and Michelle and let them know your preferences for target fish, tackle, and style of fishing.

Our boats are custom built for game fishing and offer comfort speed and style in all weathers and sea conditions. The charter includes exclusive use of the one of our boats for the day with up to 6 anglers.
