We appreciate how tough it can be for many anglers to balance their fishing passion with the holiday demands of the family or partner. If you’re looking to plan a trip where you can combine great fishing with a “family holiday” or “couples escape,” then look no further.
Trees and Fishes Angler’s Retreat is the ideal location to combine your fishing passion with your family or couples get away. Trees and Fishes offer beautifully appointed rustic accommodation, gourmet meals, massage services and a private tour bus and guide so you can experience the range of activities available from our private retreat. Either fish for a series or full or half days and together enjoy the other activities on offer, or let us look after your non fishing partner or family while you live the dream chasing trophy sport fish. Here’s your opportunity to enjoy great fishing and be the holiday planning hero!
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. Our EdgeWater 170 centre console is perfect for up to 3 anglers with walkaround access to make it comfortable and convenient.
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.
With excellent proximity to remote fishing grounds, our Trees and Fishes Anglers Retreat is a private and secluded waterfront retreat nestled on the shores of picturesque Port Havannah. Anglers stay in well appointed cabins each with own private en suite. The social hub and laid back dining area is situated right on the waters edge, with your boat stationed only a few steps away at the end of your private jetty. Excellent meals are served to anglers, using the freshest seafood and local ingredients. After each days fishing, 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.
