Big Game Fishing
Big game Fishing
Whether you are an experienced fisherman with lots of tall tales, or want to try this exciting sport during your visit, all are welcome. The waters around Pattaya offer the Sport Fisherman some fun and exciting challenges!
At Adventure Divers and Watersports we arrange regular fishing expeditions and welcome you to join us during your visit here.
The areas off the islands of Koh Pai, Koh Khram Yai and Koh Samae San are fertile fishing grounds for the keen fisherman, and there are a good variety of bigger fish to be found in the deeper waters off these Islands.
The species that can be caught include the Sailfish, followed by Shovel nose Rays, Stingrays, Reef Sharks, Nurse Sharks, Bamboo Sharks, Barracuda, Pompano, Tuna, Queen Mackerel, Groupers, Snappers, Jacks and Tangs, to name just the main species.
The “environmentalist” in us encourages people to return the sharks, rays and sailfish to their habitat after your trophy photograph. Catches are reasonable, good, or “try again”, depending on your luck and expertise, but there is no luck involved in the fun day you are sure to have.
Fishing in these waters can be enjoyed throughout the year as this part of the Gulf of Thailand is reasonably unaffected by the seasonal monsoons.
The fishing boats used are comfortable enough, generally about 14 meters, but as our experience has found, if you want to catch big game fish you need an experienced fishing captain and good gear and know the best techniques that work for the area you are fishing in. We have an associate that has been fishing these waters for over 19 years and knows the best captains in the area. If you want the best chance of catching big fish, he is the best bet.
Fishing trips can be booked on a join basis or the boat can be chartered for you own private fishing trip.
We generally restrict the numbers to maximum 8 fishermen (prefer only 6) per boat to ensure good service to our customers, plus room for your friends.
