Dropcast Fishing

The fishing in Vanuatu is all about variety and trophy sizes. Jigging and popping for monster Dogtooth tuna and giant trevally is the ultimate experience while traveling on our remote island liveaboard package.

The fishing from Vanuatu’s capital Port Vila, Efate is mostly focused on the big pelagics we have around our FADs. On these trips you will mostly be targeting barrel size Yellow Fin Tuna on topwater and jigs as well as Blue Marlin. Wahoos, Mahi-mahi, Sailfish and more are also part of the game chasing on light tackle.

Welcome Aboard AMALU, our 46ft Cresta/Custom Sportfisher Vessel which has undergone a Full Rebuild in 2018-2019. We Made Sure her Wide Flat Front Deck was Modified with Plenty of Space to Allow 5 anglers to Easily Cast Simultaneously from the Front of the Boat. Railings were also Customised for Easy Access all around the vessel.

The boat is fully equipped with the best SIMRAD electronics technology, covering all fishing necessities while Enjoying the Comfort and Space of our Living Area and Cabins which contains 3 Rooms (8 Berths) and 2 Bathrooms. Amalu is Air-conditionned throughout its Entire Interior and can accommodate a Maximum of 5 Anglers and 4 Crew members.
