Fishing around Namotu & Malolo Island

We offer chartered Fishing provided by Namotu Island boats and captains who know these waters like the back of their hands. All year long you can catch many different species. Once the catch is brought home you can enjoy fresh Yellowfin tuna Spanish Mackerel sashimi, barbecued ruby snapper and many more tasty delights.
The fisherman will usually head out in the morning and afternoon and guests are more than welcome to jump onboard and do some angling. There is no better place to get a taste of fishing than the Mamanuca Islands because it’s so close; most of the time thier fishing boat is within sight of the island of Namotu and Malolo Island so you’re not trapped on lengthy charters and can always head back in for lunch.
