The Big Blues Fishing Adventures

Ao Chalong
Ao Chalong, Thailand

The Big Blues is the premier sport fishing operation in Phuket, Thailand. Managed by anglers for anglers, the company provides first class fishing adventures in Southeast Asia for an affordable price. They invite you to bring your family and friends on a fishing adventure with them and make the most out of your holiday in Thailand.

You will be fishing aboard “Dorado”, a 20 x 5 m boat that is powered by twin 320 HP diesel engines. With large fuel and water tanks, this boat is ideal for leisurely long-range cruising, while maintaining absolute passenger comfort.

Inside the Dorado, you will find ample areas to sleep and relax, with room on both the upper and lower deck where you can catch a breath between bites in the sun or the shade. While there are two separate dining areas in the saloon, it is also possible to eat and drink “al fresco” on the shady aft deck - the perfect place to sit back and enjoy watching the fishing action.

The boat is expertly fitted out for extended liveaboard fishing adventures, with a huge “V” sleeping platform in the fore cabin that can comfortably accommodate four people, as well as four more large single bunks in two cabins.

This vessel is suitable both for day and live aboard trips around Phuket in Thailand, where you can try jigging and popping for GT, Grouper and King Mackerel. Take a mutliday trip, and you will travel to the most remote and untouched waters of the region, such as the Similan Islands, Surin Islands and Koh Rok/Ko Ha islands, where you can catch the ultimate game fish: the Black Marlin.

What makes The Big Blues sport fishing trips unique is the fact that they treat every single guest like the individual they are. They realize no two guests are the same and will create a tailor-made service on every trip, striving to provide an outstanding service every time.
