Unreel Charter

Praslin, also known as the Palm Island seems like the most peaceful place on earth. Long sandy beaches, tall palms, and crystal waters look like the best place to relax. But below that calm water lies the world full of action. Unreel Charter is here to show this magnificent world to everyone who wants a piece of this adventure.

Join Captain Simon Payet on his 32’ Boston Whaler boat. This cuddy cabin has been restored in 2019 and fitted with the latest Garmin and Furuno navigational electronics. She’s powered by twin 350 HP Suzuki engines, features a private bathroom, a live bait tank, and trolling gear. In case you feel the need to jump into that crystal water, the captain can also prepare snorkeling equipment, just make sure to request it in advance.

The area is full of all kinds of fish species and lots of them grow to an impressive size. Some of the species you can catch are Rusty Jobfish, Wahoo, Red Emperor, Giant Trevally, and Tuna. The main prize for most experienced anglers are usually Marlin and Sailfish. You can keep most of the catch, but bigger specimens need to be released. Since you can’t bring your trophy with you, make sure to take a few awesome snaps.

Your captain will prepare everything you need for the day – Shimano and Penn rods and reels, lots of lures and bait, and even snacks and drinks. Feel free to bring food of your choice, and it’s recommended to bring sunglasses, a hat, and sunscreen.

Upgrade your vacation with Unreel Charter and join an adventure you’ll never forget.

Captain Simon has been fishing for over 20 years. It has been a part of his life ever since he was a child. His entire family is into fishing, so that's the main reason he got into it as well. The best part of the job is catching big fish, and the thrill and adventure that comes along with it. On top of this, your captain speaks English very well.
