  • This is a fantastic option to include those who would like to relax, swim, suntan, snorkel, and dive or just enjoy the beauty of cruising around the islands of East Africa while the serious anglers are out catching dinner!
  • There are no less than six different types of billfish in the Zanzibar's Pemba channel just north of Nungwi and your chances of catching at least 3 different types in a season are really good.

Besides the billfish there are huge sharks (Mako, Tiger, Thresher and Hammerhead to name but a few), tuna fishing, large wahoo, king mackerel, dorado, barracuda, and record size giant trevally plus many others.
In peak Marlin season, the bill fish move right up to the coast line to gorge themselves on the tuna, making the north of Zanzibar very interesting for enthusiastic anglers. These fish show inexhaustible displays of strength and a chance at a personal best is very good.
Basically our seasons take place with the tuna season running from August to October, and then the billfish season for marlin and sailfish running from November till March. In between the game fish are always there. Large Tuna can reach up to 100 kg’s, with many schools of 50 kg tuna still migrating through our waters. The tuna are followed by the big marlin. Our main striped marlin season runs from December through to March whilst large black and blue marlin are caught in September till December.
