Magica Yacht Charter

Magica Yacht Charter specializes in first-class fishing adventures in Southeast Asia. The crew invites you to bring your family, friends, and fishing buddies and make the most out if your Thai holiday.

You will be fishing aboard the ‘Magica’, a 42’ Riviera yacht. She is a beautiful fishing machine with 370 HP Caterpillar engines and a Kohler generator in a silent box. The Magica has all the comfort of home, including a master bedroom and a three-bed cabin, a large fully air-conditioned saloon with a TV and electricity for phones and laptops. There is an 8 HP Dinghy on board, along with top-notch navigational and fish finding electronics.

The Magica features ample areas to sleep, relax, catch a breath between bites both in the sun or the shade. She is suitable for day and live aboard adventurers around Phuket.

Spend a day on the water or enjoy an overnight excursion to the area’s many islands. Each adventure is completely customizable to meet your specific aquatic need. Try jigging, trolling, bottom fishing, drift fishing, and popping for Giant Trevally, Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo. Head out to Mai Thon for some Sailfish action or check the bite around the Racha Islands.

Magica Yacht Charter will introduce you to any aquatic opportunity the local waters have to offer. If you don’t have the itch to fish, just let your captain know. He will take you to a remote beach where you can have lunch, swim, and take a dip in the crystal clear water.

The trips aboard the Magic are all-inclusive. You will be provided with all the necessary equipment for fishing and snorkeling. All charters include breakfast, lunch, and snacks.
