Deep Sea Fishing

The waters between Zanzibar and Pemba are home to excellent big game fishing and are famous world wide for the exciting opportunities they provide.  Further South at Mafia Island and Latham Island there are fishing grounds which are almost untouched with only a few local fishermen there taking the fish.  With large schools of barracuda, wahoo, king fish and giant travelli in the area all year and seasonal visits from many other species the fishing off Zanzibar is an experience you will never forget.

All professional deep sea fishing boats are equipped to the highest international safety standards.  They also have the latest fishing technology with GPS navigational aids, echo sounders and fish finders. Half and full day charters are available on all the boats and if you would like to do a longer trip then three or five day charters to Pemba, Mafia Island and Latham Island can also be arranged.

A full set of tackle is provided with Shimano, Fenwick, Harnell or KC rods and Shimano or Penn International reels, spooled with 80lb, 50lb, 30lb or 20lb mono lines.  Clients who wish to use their own lighter tackle are welcome.  Experienced skippers and crew can instruct novices and talk fishermen through any procedure in the course of reeling in their catch and give hints and tips to improve your technique.
