Panamwe Tours & Safari – Life Is Good III

If you’re up for a Tanzanian fishing adventure, Panamwe Tours & Safari is the best choice! They will take you on a journey cruising the waters off the coast of Unguja island, and cover all the best fishing spots in the area. Captain Mardeeny is an experienced angler whose biggest passion is getting monsters out of the sea.

You’ll explore these productive grounds aboard Life Is Good III – a 20’ custom offshore sportfishing boat. The boat is powered by a 85 HP Yamaha engine and it’s a comfortable ride to the fishing grounds. It can accommodate up to 6 people, so bring your friends and have an adventure!

Capt. Mardeeny will provide you with Daiwa and Shimano rods and reels. You’ll be using live bait and do some trolling for big pelagics. Bottom fishing and jigging are also an option, depending on the conditions and your wishes.

These waters are brimming with life, so there’s a variety of fish species you can hook. You can expect to get a lot of Barracuda and Giant Trevally, and Sailfish season starts in winter. Other species you’ll come across include Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Wahoo, Tuna, and Bonito.

There will be drinks on board, and on full day trips, the captain will provide you with lunch as well. All you need to bring is some sun protection, so you can freely enjoy your day. You’re free to keep some of the catch for dinner, and the crew will keep the rest depending on how many fish you catch.

Join Panamwe Tours & Safari and experience some great fishing on one of the most beautiful islands in the world!
