Crusoe Fishing - Nevagivup 34'

Crusoe Fishing runs game fishing trips on the waters of Vanuatu. Here, you will find a variety of Marlins, Tuna, Sailfish, and Mahi Mahi. The big game is what these trips are all about, whether you’re a novice fisherman, or a seasoned angler.

The crew has two boats, so if you can’t find a spot on this vessel, just scroll down and click on the captain’s name. There you will see available dates on his other offshore sport fishing boat.

In the meantime, let’s talk about Nevagiveup. Nevagivup is a 34’ Blackwatch and is usually skippered by Captain Charles Wheeler. Captain Charles has been in Vanuatu for 17 years, having previously fished worldwide. He holds five world records and over 50 Vanuatu records in game fishing. He knows what it takes, and will help you get your dream catch.

The boat is powered by a 315 HP Cummins engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 17 knots. She can take up to six anglers. The boat is equipped with navigational electronics, and has tuna tubes, outriggers, a fighting chair, and a flybridge. Travelers will find a kitchen, toilet, and bed, along all the fishing gear.

Nevagivup specialises in light line and fly but covers all aspects from trolling to live and dead bait fishing, popping and jigging. You will encounter Blue Marlin, Black Marlin (Apr - Sep), Striped Marlin (Jun - Nov), Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Yellowfin Tuna.

Nevagivup has a full range of Furuno electronics and Shimano tackle in all line classes from 130lb down and a range of tackle for popping and jigging with Shimano Saratogas 20,000 and 25,000.

Pack sunblock, a cap, sunglasses, bring along comfortable clothes and footwear. On shorter trips, the crew will serve soft drinks, water, and snacks, and you will have lunch and a light breakfast on a full day trip. You don’t need a fishing permit, but you should definitely bring a camera. Book a date, and go get that big one!
