Phuket Fishing day trip
We are often asked to give recommendations for a Phuket fishing day trip and have until now declined to offer fishing trips on this website for two main reasons. One is that we prefer to swim with the fish in the water rather than hooking them out, the other is that so many of the fishing boats that depart daily from Phuket are not of a high quality.
We have now found a boat that offers a high standard of service for a more discerning amateur fisherman at a reasonable price. The Wahoo 4 is a clean and reliable fishing boat with top of the range equipment and operating to the highest international standards. Numbers on the day trips are limited to a maximum of just 8 guests per day so that everyone gets plenty of time with rod and reel. The highly experienced captain and crew will take you to the best fishing grounds south of Phuket.
A join in fishing day trip is 4,000 baht per person (1,000 baht discount for non fishing partners).
The price includes all fishing equipment, transfers, towels, soft drinks and freshly cooked lunch on the boat. There is an ice box on board if you take your own beers.
If you have a group of 6 you can charter the whole boat for just 21,500 baht per day.
What will you catch? The most common fish caught are tuna and trevally which you can take away with you, a local restaurant will be happy to cook it for you. Game fish like marlin and sail fish can be caught also but they are not caught every day. The boat practices catch and release for game fish.
