Game Fishing


  • The Andaman Islands form a breathtakingly beautiful and relatively untouched archipelago situated by the Andaman Sea in the Bay of Bengal. Only 36 of 572 islands are inhabited, leaving 86% of the landmass under protected forest cover. Tropical rainforests abound in rare and endemic species of flora and fauna. With no commercial fishing aloud the reefs are virtually untouched, giving the fish a chance to grow to colossal sizes.

  • Huge masses of water are pulled through the islands by the tides each day providing the smaller fish with an abundance of food, giving the predators plenty to eat and grow. The Islands have large mangroves forests which provide excellent nursing ground for the juvenile fish.

  • With so many reef systems being undiscovered you are likely to hook in to some real monsters. Be prepared for a fishing adventure that will certainly put you and your gear to the ultimate test.
