With 1,400,000 sq.km of territorial water, it seems the Seychelles was deliberately designed for all levels of fishermen since it offers various and impressive fishing opportunities. Big-game fishing and bottom-fishing can be enjoyed throughout the Seychelles, while the shallow waters of the outer islands offer some of the best fly-fishing and blue-water fishing in the world.
There are more than 1000 species of fish that occur in Seychelles waters. Many of these are International record breakers, namely the pacific bonito and dogtooth tuna, whilst the outer islands have become the centre of salt-water fly-fishing.
Spectacular trophy sailfish and marlin, together with shark, giant barracuda, rainbow runner and wahoo, make the Seychelles an exciting fishing destination for experienced anglers and novices alike.
The variety of charter boats and fishing excursions available allow for individual tailoring of fishing programmes.
