Fiji Surfco Game Fishing Adventures

Book Fiji Surfco Game Fishing Adventures for a unique opportunity to fish the entire length of The Great Sea Reef, the world’s third-largest continuous reef system. Captain Dirk Gardner has been fishing for over 30 years, so he’ll take you to the richest fishing grounds in no time!

Explore these beautiful waters on the 37’ Kevlacat 3700 Catamaran boat. The captain takes up to 8 people fishing, so that everyone can have a comfortable experience. The boat has everything you might need, including a toilet, a kitchen, and a bed.

All the best Shimano equipment will be provided for you, and there’s a fighting chair so you can battle some of the sea monsters of the area. You’ll fish by rotation on rods, and you’ll be using live bait caught on the way to the fishing grounds. There’s snorkeling equipment on board so you can fully explore these pristine waters.

You’ll be targeting a variety of species, including Blue and Black Marlin as well as Trevally, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Spanish Mackerel, Pacific Barracuda, and Yellowfin Tuna. The crew keeps the catch, but you’ll take enough of it to taste the fruits of your labor.

On the multiday trip, you’ll be fishing by day and staying at a different island resort or retreat by night. If you can’t manage the entire length, you can join or leave by seaplane, seabus, or whatever form of transport is available from your chosen location.

Kids of all ages are welcome, so this can be a nice family vacation. There will be drinks and snacks, and an ice cooler on board, as well as lunch on full day trips.

Book your next adventure and come have the time of your life in the turquoise waters off the coast of Fiji!
