Panamwe Tours & Safari – Life Is Good II

Head over to Unguja island in Tanzania and experience some of the best fishing around with Panamwe Tours & Safari! Explore these deep blue waters, and hook some of the prized pelagic species with Captain Mardeeny. He’s an experienced angler who’s been fishing these waters for over 20 years, so he’ll put you on the fish in no time.

Life Is Good II is a 20’ custom offshore sportfishing boat that will take you to all the honey holes in the area. The boat can comfortably accommodate up to 4 people, so you can expect a smooth ride cruising the deep ocean.

You’ll be fishing using live bait, and Capt. Mardeeny will have Daiwa and Shimano rods and reels for you. Trolling is the main fishing technique you’ll be using, as well as some bottom fishing and jigging, depending on the season and your target.

These open waters are very rich in nature, so expect to run into a variety of fish species in the area. Depending on the conditions, you can catch a lot of Giant Trevally and Barracuda. The beginning of winter marks the start of the Sailfish season, so this is the time to book an action-packed adventure. Expect to cross paths with Marlin, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Bonito, and Tuna as well.

Capt. Mardeeny will provide drinks for your refreshment, and you can expect lunch on full day trips. Make sure to bring some sunscreen so that you’re able to fully enjoy your time. Depending on how many fish you end up catching, it will be shared between you and the crew. You are free to take some home so you can taste the hard-earned fruits of your labor!

Come to one of the most beautiful places on Earth, and join Panamwe Tours & Safari for some of the best fishing out there!
