Sunrise Fishing Trip

A different kind of fishing experience where we use lures to attract pelagic fishes such as tuna and trevally. A lure is used on each side of the Dhoni as it moves in the channel attracting fast swimming hunters. The catch can also be prepared by our chefs to the guests’ preferences. Minimum age 4 years.

We move into deeper waters to target the larger pelagic including tuna and billfish. The experienced captain and crew can help the guests to bring in the larger fighting fish.
