Stormbird - 8.1 Meter Reef Master

(13) In demand!
Nautilus Watersports. Lini Hwy
Port Vila, Vanuatu

Stormbird has plenty of sun cover over a spacious deck area and is very popular for groups of up to 6 doing day trips fishing out of Port Vila. (No on board toilet)

Another great benefit of fishing these amazing waters is that you don’t need to travel very far before you begin fishing.

Stormbird is a 8.1 meter Reef Master that is great for day trips out of Port Vila. Stormbird has a great tackle line up whether you want to chase marlin or head out with the family for a few hours reef fishing and have a snorkel on a reef. Stormbird is set up to catch anything from a marlin to casting poppers for a G.T. We normally set the tackle on the day to suit the requirements of the anglers on-board.

Ten to twenty minuets is usually ample to get you amongst the action. We can then troll out around the F.A.D.’s and on a little further and fish the Marlin Highway which is more than 1000 meters deep and has become famous for turning on some amazing fishing. The Marlin Highway run hundreds of miles north and south past this island group to provide some of the best fishing in the world and periodically a 1000lb marlin turns up.

So for what ever your fishing requirements are while you are here in Vanuatu I’m sure there is a package or charter to suit your needs.

Big-game fishing often referred to as offshore sportfishing, offshore gamefishing or blue-water fishing is a form of recreational fishing.… When it comes to fishing Vanuatu you cant go past Wild Blue Fishing Charters. We are also known as Game Fishing Vanuatu

I worked many years ago as a commercial fisherman of the coast of Australia. I then became interested in game fishing. After fishing many locations around the world I then moved to Vanuatu and set up our operation. We have become the leaders in the industry due to our dedicated service and attention to detail. Our boats and gear are top notch and we are keen to look after your fishing requirements.

Had a great half day trip out with the guys. They made the trip fun and really knew there stuff. They took us out to the Marlin Highway and even though we didn’t land a big one , we had great fun trolling and pulling in small yellowfin tuna and bonito. Saw a few dolphin fish in the area but didn’t manage to hook one. Overall was a great experience and highly recommend anyone thinking of using these guys.

Hi Sean,

Great to hear that you had a good time.  Was a shame that you lost your Bill fish, it would have made for a great charter if you had got the big boy in.

Cheers
Pete
