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 sport fishing adventure with them and make the most out of your holiday in Thailand.

You will be fishing and, during multi day adventures, living, aboard the iconic 50 ft Bertram “My Lily”. The boat’s unmatched seaworthiness and comfort makes it an extremely desirable base for a fishing adventure of any kind. Built on a ‘Deep V’ hull for stability, there is plenty of space inside for relaxing, while the spacious deck allows plenty of room for up to six persons to fish at a time. The accommodation includes three cabins, with one en-suite master bedroom, an en-suite double, and a cabin with over/ under twin berths. The fishing equipment provided is as impressive as the living arrangements: there is a heavy duty fighting chair, high quality marine electronics, and outriggers and downriggers to make your fishing trip as productive as possible.

While fishing the crystal clear waters around Phuket you can try jigging and popping for GT, African Pompano, Grouper and King Mackarel, or you can travel to the Racha/Phi Phi Islands and the drop-off near Phuket to fish for big game such as Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and King Mackerel. If you are after the ultimate sport fishing adventure, however, try one of The Big Blues’ multiday trips, which offer you the once in a lifetime opportunity of taking a liveaboard fishing safari to some of the most remote and untouched waters of the region, such as the Burma Banks and Myanmar’s Mergui Archipelago. 

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.
