FISHING BOAT TRIPS and FISHING ON THE ISLAND:
Phuket is Thailand’s largest Island and the surrounding waters are well known to be home to Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish and Yellow fin Tuna Fish, aswell as many more varieties. Phuket has two seasons, the “Dry Season” which is considered High Season, running from the beginning of November until the end of April, and the “Wet Season” which often has tropical down pours of rain and harsh winds. Fishing is considered to be good all year round in Phuket, but specifically towards the end of the Wet Season, from July to October. Do remember the weather out on the open sea can be rougher at this time of the year and you must always take care and listen to the boats crew. The Fishing Boat Companies will cancel trips if it is considered too rough and unsafe.
With safety and experience or a professional crew as a main priority, it is recommended that you contact our Tour Manager who will advise you on the most suitable options for your fishing experience. The best options will be based on your experience, desire, ages and stamina of guests and budget, and with many options to consider in Phuket, is is necessary to get professional advice.
If you enjoy fishing, but do not want to venture out on a boat, then Chalong Fishing Park offers you the opportunity to fish for Fresh Water Fish, without have to leave the island and find your sea legs.

For a day trip we can recommend 2 destinations: Racha Yai/Racha Noi and The Drop Off.

The Drop Off:The drop–off, on Phuket's continental shelf offers anglers their best chance of Black Marlin action. The drop–off is also the haunt of Yellowfin Tuna – though rarely trophy size. Big Wahoo often cruise the shelf, as do Barracuda and impressive Dorado. The Skipjacks are generally much bigger than their cousins caught in shallower water. Sailfish do show up occasionally but seldom in great numbers.
