My family and I are so happy we choose Sigatoka fishing charters. They went out of their way to make sure my family had an eventful day. Captain Mohammed and Goji were professional, fun, knowledgeable, and very accommodating. We will definitely be returning and I cant recommend them enough.
After we finished we hung out at their place, ate a few pieces of the fresh fish they healped us catch and got to know other people there. Goji got us ice and let us borrow his cooler to take back to our hotel. Their driver took us there and back in a timely manner and brought the cooler back to them. Great price, WONDERFUL experience.
Please visit them when you are in Fiji.

Unfortunate weather on the day, was a bit confused as to why we didnt re schedule for another day. Got on to 2 spanish mackerel and a barracuda in the first hour. Unfortunately the weather was too much and we couldnt go far and the fish just werent biting. The crew were lovely and tried there hardest the whole day to try find us some fish. Even botom bashing but to no evail.

We didn’t land any big ones but the crew was great. We stopped and did bottom fishing at the end so we could be sent home with dinner.

We laughed the whole trip. The captain and deck hand were both locals so it was a great experience.

The vessel was nothing like advertised - dirty, peeling paint, no toilet, snacks consisted of a pack of old biscuits and a small can of soft drink. Looked like it might sink in a small sea. One school of fish that resulted in two average size fish in 6 hours. Advertised that the fish would be cleaned and filleted-didn’t happen. Crew only interested in money. Appalling day. Don’t waste your money.

We are bit upset about your review on us.
Our boat is cleaned after each trip.
Regarding toilet, we have always had a portable toilet onboard.
We provide bottled water and soft drinks on all trips.
Fishing is such that someday you can’t catch lots. We however managed to get you onto 2 decent sized fish.
We do clean the fish on request. Perhaps you didn’t ask the crew to clean them for you.
The crew have years of fishing experience and take pride in doing what they do best. It’s not all about making money.
We hope you have a better experience on your next fishing adventure.

We had a good day.  Unfortunately no big fish which was disappointing but I believe it is no quite the season.  Got lots of reef fish though.  Was amazed that Fiji has no limit to how many fish you can catch and more importantly no size restriction.  I would have loved to throw the little ones back but no they went into the chilly bin.  The three guys on the boat were great.  Helpful to the point they almost take over!

We appreciate your positive review. It was unfortunately not a lucky day for any big ones. But I am glad you got to experience catching some reef fish.
Regarding the small fish kept in the chilly bin, I understand they should have been released too. I have again advised the crew to release all fish that is not going to be taken away by the guests.
Hope you had a wonderful Fiji holidays and we look forward to seeing you again in the near future

Booked this trip on recommendation from a staff at the resort we stayed at. And i am so glad that we did. Had a ball out the withmy 3 mates. Captain and deckie were very friendly. Captain let 6 lines out in the water when we were trolling and we caught 5 big fish in total. We also did some bottom fishing where we caught some coral trouts.
Price included transfers to and from our resort. We had fished out of Denarau few years ago but these guys are the best.
Highly recommended them!

Owesum and friendly captain Fai with crew Bento. Couldn’t have any better day fishing when you got people who know what they are doing and where to fish, few tips was also given how to fish. It was my best fishing trip and I will say I will be back fishing with Sigatoka Fishing Charters again soon. You guys rock. Keppra up the great work guys…
