Island Fishing Charters Co.

Wharf Road
Port Vila, Vanuatu

Island Fishing Charters runs year-round fishing trips around the rich waters of Vanuatu. Here you can catch fish big and small, of all shapes and hues. Whether you’re looking for Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, or Wahoo, here you can claim your prize.

Island Fishing Charters are based out of Port Villa. They provide a variety of fishing packages to suit more experienced and new anglers alike. When you come fishing with them, they will welcome you aboard the 28’ Sea Fox walkaround. Named ‘Little Weapon’, this boat is fit to fish for big names. She is powered by two 150 HP Mercury fourstroke engines, has a toilet, and is rigged with Simrad GPS, fishfinder, and outriggers. She can accommodate up to six people. You will also find an ice box an a live bait well onboard.

Your host for the day will be local skipper Kendrick “Kenny” George. With over 15 years of experience fishing local waters, Kenny knows how the fish move and where to take you. Whether it’s about reef species or game fish, Kenny and his deckhand will work to make your trip enjoyable and memorable.

These waters lie above some impressive drop offs that surround the volcanic island of Vanuatu. There are many fish attracting devices where fish flock, so you shouldn’t be having hard time finding them. Still, you will need local knowledge to actually get the fish to the boat.

Once you hop onboard, you will get the rods, reel, and tackle, as well as lures. The crew will provide snacks, drinks and lunch, but you can also pack your own sandwiches. You should bring sunblock, a cap, sunglasses, and light clothes. Make your clothing comfortable so that you can move around easily. And, you will definitely want to pack a camera. Check out the photos and see why.

Great trip, Kenny and Harry knew their stuff, booked a 4 hour trip ended up coming in early very happy with our day. Caught a wahoo 1st then 2 little yellowfin, was happy with that and suggested we throw poppers for a gt. Kenneth said sure we will troll into a spot he knows giving us a chance of a marlin. 2 minutes later we hooked a nice black marlin. Harry and Kenny expertly got the fish beside the boat where we discovered it was hooked in the eye and could not release. Having to kill the marlin was the only disappointment of the day. 10/10.

Just the two crew and myself and my wife on the boat. The captain and Harry, the deckie, were on the boat. Good weather, nice calm seas and good fishing. My wife caught a five foot Bronze Whaler Shark and the crew guided her to get it to the boat where it was gaffed and brought onboard.

All but one fish (would our resort cooked for us) was donated to a local children’s home, which pleases us as it contributes back to the locals.

A fantastic morning experience and thoroughly recommend this charter.
