Tangalle Fishing Tour

If you’re visiting Sri Lanka, and wish to experience the productive fishing this area has to offer, Tangalle Fishing Tour will be happy to take you out! The crew is made up of local captains, who have a lot of experience in the area and can’t wait to show you all the secret spots and honey holes.

Join them on their 19’ custom bay boat and have an action-packed adventure on these crystal clear waters. The boat can support up to 4 anglers who can all bottom fish at the same time, while 2 can troll at once.

You’ll be provided with top-notch Shimano and Penn rods and reels, and Halco lures, so you can get right to fishing! You’ll use different techniques to target a variety of fish species that call these waters their home, and the crew will be happy to clean and fillet your catch for you to take home. You can even have your catch cooked for an extra charge.

Test your trolling skills with Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Barracuda on the offshore trips, or bottom fish for Snapper and Giant Trevally on the reef trips. Either way, you won’t go too far from the shore, so don’t hesitate to bring your kids and make this a fun family adventure!

If you’re feeling adventurous, there’s snorkeling equipment on board, so feel free to ask your captain about it. Fruit, water, and sodas will be provided for you, as well as breakfast on the longer trips. There’s plenty of storage on board, so don’t hesitate to bring whatever snacks and drinks you’d like to have!

Wear weather-appropriate clothing, bring some sunscreen, and come enjoy the sun under the Srilankan sky with Tangalle Fishing Tour!
