Lion City Fishing Charters

If you’re looking for a unique and unforgettable angling adventure, head to the northern shores of Singapore and hop aboard Lion City Fishing Charters! Captain Max is the man behind the helm, and he prides himself on running nearshore and offshore trips from a sporty, spacious, and clean vessel. Why compromise when you can have both?

Speaking of the vessel, she’s a 27’ Sea Swirl Striper sport fisher, capable of traveling quickly and efficiently, so you can cast your line in a variety of hotspots! She can accommodate up to 4 guests, but how many people can come aboard depends on the trip you opt for.

On full day adventures, you’ll be able to embark on your trip with a group of 5 anglers, whereas shorter trips see this number limited to groups of 2 or 3 guests. This is all for your comfort and safety! As well as life jackets, navigational gear, and a live bait well, there’s also a clean cabin toilet to ensure that your comfort is maximized.

Captain Max runs Lion City Fishing Charters with a "hunters and seekers" mentality – basically, if there are no fish in one spot, you’ll move around and "hunt" for your prey! On longer trips, this means heading offshore to target pelagics and bottom feeders such as Giant Trevally, Barracuda, Snapper species, and Amberjack.

Want to spend less time on the water and still have a productive day? Capt. Max will stick to nearshore waters, where you’ll be able to try out a whole host of techniques to target world-famous species such as Sweetlip Emperor, Snapper, Queenfish, and Mackerel.

You’ll need to rent top-quality fishing gear from your captain, which is priced at SG $30 per person. This includes top-of-the-line rods and reels, a variety of tackle, lures, and dead bait in certain seasons. Then all you need to do is grab your favorite snacks and drinks, and join Lion City Fishing Charters for an unforgettable adventure!

"I love the sea and have always wanted to fulfill a childhood dream of owning my own boat! Now that I have, I want to share my adventures out at sea with other adventurers out there!" Captain Max is the man behind Lion City Fishing Charters, and he's been exploring these waters as a charter captain since 2013. He grew up in this area, so you'll be treated to a truly local adventure when you join him for your trip! Capt. Max decided to become a charter captain after spending many years fishing with friends and family and realizing how much fun everyone was having. Hands down, his favorite part of the job is teaching newbies and experienced anglers alike how to fish these waters. He likes working with kids and novice anglers because he gets to teach them all about fishing techniques, strategies, and species!
