Panamwe Tours & Safari

Panamwe Tours & Safari offers you the chance to experience some incredible sportfishing out in the deep waters around Unguja, also known as Zanzibar Island. Head offshore in search of Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna and more with an experienced captain who will always go the extra mile to get you on the fish.

Spend the day fishing aboard a 20’ boat which was custom built for fishing the deep waters off Tanzania’s Island Coast. She features masses of fishing space all around, and a covered top to give plenty of shade from the tropical heat.

The fishing around Unguja has to be seen to be believed. Captain Mardeeny has caught Tuna weighing almost 180 pounds here in the past, and some of the Marlin are simply too big to bring out of the water! You will focus mainly on trolling for Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo, but can also jig for Tuna and other species lurking below.

All Panamwe Tours & Safari trips come with quality heavy tackle from the likes of Daiwa and Shimano, as well as Squid baits and trolling lures. There’s no need to buy a fishing license, and you will be given snacks and drinks to keep you going on your trip.

This is a chance to really get on the ground floor in a fishery that’s destined for greatness. Target some of the ocean’s top predators on one of the most beautiful islands in the world. If it sounds like the perfect charter, that’s because it pretty much is!
