Billy’s Charter

Bel Ombre
Victoria, Seychelles

Billy’s Charter is a small enterprise operating out of Victoria, Seychelles. Their mission to satisfy all of their customers, novice or experienced, be it a half-day or a full-day trip.

They enjoy every moment interacting with all the guests and their priority is to make you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout your adventure! It doesn’t matter if you are an experienced angler or a first timer, Captain Billy Camille will teach you all the techniques you need to know.

He invites you to spend the day aboard his 26’ custom-built catamaran, your ideal fishing machine. She comes powered by twin 225 HP Yamaha V6 4-stroke engines, which is more than enough power to reach the fishing ground before anyone does!

The vessel is accessorized with a nine inch Garmin chartplotter/fishfinder with a maximum depth range on 300 meters. On the boat, you’ll also find Cobra VHF marine radio and an onboard music system to keep you entertained while catching your next record.

Billy’s Charter mostly goes for big-game fish which include Yellowfin Tuna, Bonito, Dorado, Wahoo, Sailfish, great Marlin, and deep sea species when the weather is permitting, such as Red Snapper, Grouper, Jackfish, and the famous Giant Trevally.

The captain will supply you with 6 Penn big game fishing reels and two jigging rod/reel combos. With a wide selection of lures by Rapala, be it for trolling or bottom fishing, you’ll be fully equipped to exceed your expectations.

On their full-day trips, Billy’s Charter offer fishing, snorkeling/fish feeding, and a local beach grill BBQ, so you’ll get to grill your catch. Nothing will taste as good as fish that you caught yourself!

I grew up in Seychelles. During the school holidays, I would go out fishing with my dad. Since then, I developed a great interest in both boating and fishing. Then after my studies, I worked for my dad as a full-time job and with time, I gained more experience. I did my skippers license, then decided I want to start my own business. So now I have my own boat and offer fishing charters.
