These guys are great. We booked in a group charter for deep sea fishing.They have excellent shimano reels for serious big fish trips. The crew were awesome. We were picked and dropped from hotel free of charge. The highlight of our trip was a huge Mahimahi and wahoo that we caught. We later took them back for dinner. These guys are the tops in the Coral Coast. We will be back next year.

I booked half day fishing with these guys. I have always wanted to catch a mahimahi all my life and these guys delivered me my dream fish…not one but 3. Captain and crew are very well versed with the area and definatly know where to find the fish. They have a good stable boat with quality fishing gears. We got picked and dropped to and from our hotel. We also took some of our catch to cook at our hotel which was brilliantly done by the chef at Naviti resort. I highly recommend this charter to anyone visiting Fiji.

It was blowing 15 knots. Not the best of weather 3 - 4m plus swell. Was asked if we wanted to go out, not knowing the area etc. We went on the advice of captain / crewmen, we never caught anything.
When returning home we were advised it was too rough and the crew should of and would of known this.
Nice guys, nice boat we just felt like we had been advantage of.(it’s all about the money not the experience)

We appreciate your feedback about your trip with us.
It is true that 15 knots winds does make the seas choppy but will not create 4 meter swells. Swells on the day were average of 1.5 meters.
We do troll in choppy waters with winds up to 15 knots with guests that are used to sea conditions.
Since we did not have another day to reschedule your trip, we gave you the option to either cancel the trip or head out to the bay and see if you wanted to continue fishing. You chose to continue and it was unfortunate that we didnt catch anything on trolling.
We always try our best to give our guests the best experience. Hope you had a wonderful Fiji holidays.

We started the day at around 6.45am when we were picked up from our hotel. We requested to start later so as to have breakfast in our hotel. Our key purpose was to do bottom fishing for good eating fish. And we caught plenty in just 3 hours. All good eating fish - snapper, grouper, carol trout. We also caught a couple of wahoo while trolling which is a bonus. Captain very knowledgeable on both fishing and location. Both captain and crew very helpful. Good family fun and children will enjoy the fishing. Advise to bring your own rod for bottom fishing with 15 to 30 lbs line.

We are glad you enjoyed fishing with us. At tge moment we only use overhead reels for both trolling and bottom fishing. But we soon will have onboard casting reels and smaller rods for bottom fishing as well.
We hope you have a wonderful Fiji holidays.

We booked a 4 hours trip with this company. We did our research and found them to be the cheapest. The only problem was them being bit far away from our resort. But this did not matter when we found out they will not charge us for transfers. Communication was great. The skipper and deck guy are lovely people. We caught 1 very big travely and couple Spanish mackerel.
An overall very good day out for us.
These guys are great and I cant recommend them enough

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!
