Black Pearl – Jimbaran Bay

The Black Pearl is possibly Jimbaran Bay’s most iconic fishing charter. Leave all your responsibilities behind in the modern world and use this chance to explore Bali like a real pirate!

Jolly Rodger and all, the Black Pearl looks the part. But you won’t find yourself in the hands of a pirate crew. Instead, you will be taken care of by a friendly team who have been providing customers with unforgettable nautical adventures for 4 years.

Sail out of the northernmost part of Jimbaran Bay aboard a 40’ traditional Balinese jukung, ideal for up to 6 guests. Let the pressures of everyday life wash away as you lay back on the cushioned seats and explore some of Indian Ocean’s most prolific waters!

She’s fully loaded with cold drinks, a shade canopy, netting sundecks, fishing equipment, and life vests. Just make sure to use the toilet before departure – that’s one thing you won’t find aboard!

Leave the shore behind and fish like the locals have for centuries. You’ll hook into a variety of fun-to-catch and delicious fish including Jacks, Trevally, Snapper, Grouper, and Mackerel.

Your captain will introduce to the most effective techniques for fishing the area, including trolling and bottom fishing, as well as jigging for those who want more of a challenge.

All of the equipment and gear you need for a successful day already awaits aboard. At the end of the trip, take your catch to shore and let the crew cook it up for you on the barbecue!

For friendly service, beautiful views, and an insight into local, and pirate, life, look no further – book your very own Black Pearl experience today!
