Description

Wild Blue Fishing Charters has been running for over a decade in Port Vila. They offer anything from day trips to multi-day live-aboard or live away charters. They operate two different boats and offer a wide range of trips and charter/accommodation packages.

The flagship of their fleet is Tanveral, a 29ft Blackfin fitted out with an expansive range of fishing tackle, and is powered by twin 200HP engines and able to cruise comfortably at 20 knots to get you to the best waters quickly. Tanveral is ideal for day trips or trips to Mosso Island and as far as Epi and the Maskelyne Islands. If you choose to charter a long range trip she will be fitted with highly specialized fishing tackle to chase big G.T’s, dogtooth and naturally the wide selection of billfish found in these waters.

Quarter of an hour is usually more than enough time to get you out to the action. You can then troll the F.A.D.’s or head out slightly further to target the Marlin Highway which is more than a kilometer deep and is famous for its amazing fishing frequently sporting Marlin as large as 1000 lb. So whatever you are looking for here in Vanuatu there is sure to be a package or charter to suit you.

Pete and Jimmy were great, unfortunately we had a quiet day and went home fishless, but thats why they call it fishing and not catching as Jimmy said. Still had fun, will be booking in for a longer charter, maybe a few days later this year or early next year. Still chasing some Wahoo and Mahi Mahi and have plenty of faith in Pete to get us some prized fish. Thanks again guys. Matt.

Capt. Pete really made us feel super comfortable before the trip! Setting expactations, answering questions and help us understand better what we’ll do. It worth every penny! Combination of great customer service, super crew and top notch equipment, fun atmosphere and nice tunes, you have the opportunity for the memorable experience! Definitely something everyone needs to try. I still talk about the trip wherever I go and that feeling is priceless, the feeling of full satisfaction!

Great job!
