Understanding that our guests have varying levels of experience, we offer four types of fishing tours that cater to everyone from families and fishing novices to those who are a little more serious about the sport. To maximize your time on the water, we like to start our fishing tours early, at around 7am for day tours, returning at 5pm, and 6pm for night tours, returning at around 2am.
So that you are offered the best possible experience, our tours are run by local Thai fishermen with many years of experience navigating the local waters. Many of our tour guides have fathers and grandfathers who were fishermen and so have virtually grown up on these waters. They offer to run the tours as a way of supplementing their income and sharing their knowledge, whilst making sure that you get to visit some of the best fishing sites around Koh Samui!
Each tour includes transfers, life jackets, fishing equipment, snorkeling equipment, Thai-style meal (lunch or dinner – depending on tour time), drinks (soft drinks, bottled water, tea and coffee), English speaking guides and insurance.
Our four tours include:
Day Fishing Tour
Night Fishing Tour
Big Game Fishing Tour
Private Charter Fishing Tour
Each tour targets different species of fish and will provide baits and lures accordingly. Our Big Game Fishing tour will focus on the larger species of fish such as the Grouper, Shark, Barracuda, Trevally, Batfish and Sailfish. You will have the opportunity to snag “the big one” with this tour – imagine going home with stories of having caught an enormous Marlin!
The evenings about the baits used to attract them. As such, the Night Fishing tour will begin with you being taught how to catch squid which will be used as bait at our next stop. Make sure that you keep clear of the squid to avoid being “inked”! The lights of local fishing boats, working to stock the morning market, will twinkle on the water as you fish into the wee hours of the morning.
Should you want a more personalized experience, we also offer Private Charter Fishing Tours which will focus on the fishing that you are specifically interested in. After chatting with you, our guides will help tailor a tour to suit your experience level and fish preferences.
Please be aware that itineraries are subject to change dependent on weather and other unforeseen circumstances.
