Fishing will give a purpose to your island-hopping day and brings a deeper satisfaction. Believe us, spearing a barracuda will bring out hunter-gatherer instincts you may even knew you had! And what other activity allows you to visit the islands, top up your tan, learn about nature and local tradition as well as take care of lunch and dinner?
Two type of trips are available: group tours to the islands on a specially equipped large boat, or traditional longtail boat; or a fishing and homestay tour in a local fishing village, an excellent opportunity to watch and participate in traditional activities. Private and night fishing trips can also be organised.
All of the fishing tours use guides with expert knowledge of the local seas, which means the fish should almost be jumping out of the water. You can expect to catch anything from small, tasty mackerel to larger trevally, king fish or even barracuda. Morning catches are cooked fresh for lunch and you are free to take home whatever you hook yourself - many beachfront restaurants will be happy to serve you your own personal ‘catch of the day.
