Dining is a highlight, using the freshest seafood and local ingredients. After each days activities, wind down with a relaxing massage or enjoy a few well earned drinks with friends while you watch the sun setting over the tranquil waters of Port Havannah.

The Experience

From the moment you arrive, you will be met at the airport and transferred in our private bus to Trees and Fishes Angler’s Retreat. Located on the secluded north west coast of Efate, our location is unique in that anglers can cover such a variety of fishing grounds within close proximity from our base. On a typical day we will have you out fishing at dawn and back to the lodge late afternoon for that well earned ale waiting for you. Then sit down to a superb meal while enjoying a few more beers or a bottle of wine while discussing strategy in anticipation for your next day.

The Fishing Trip

The waters we fish from our base offer some great light tackle sportfishing for both inshore and bluewater targets. A weeks allround adventure can take in a variety of locations and fishing techniques, including jigging and popping for yellowifin around offshore FADs, casting for mahi mahi or working around the many inshore islands & flats for bluefin trevally, red bass, barracuda and smaller GT’s. We’ll troll lures and rigged baits for wahoo and other pelagics. Add the dogtooth and GT’s onto this and there is plenty on offer when sports fishing Vanuatu with us.

This trip is perfect for…

  • Couples unable to charter the whole boat who wish to experience the simplicity of a scheduled charter.
  • Couples wanting to indulge on & off the water.
  • Couples wanting to experience an all round adventure including bluewater, reef, dogtooth tuna, GT’s & more.
