Blue Water Billfish Adventure

The Fishing

The Lure of the Big Blue!

This adventure is suited to anglers specifically targeting billfish. The deep drop off located just off our Trees and Fishes Lodge, offers some of the best big game fishing for blue marlin on the planet. Vanuatu’s shoreline drops off steeply due to its volcanic geography, providing incredibly deep waters close to shore – the perfect environment for calm water blue marlin game fishing! We have also deployed a number of our own FAD’s which aggregate the bait attracting these big fish. You will also encounter the striped and black marlin as well. For those anglers who’d rather fish inshore sailfish are prevalent during winter and spring.

The Boats

Fish with Confidence

Fish aboard a 34ft Black Watch game fisher, ideal vessel for anglers specifically targeting Vanuatu’s famous blue marlin. Equipped with 130lb fighting chair, a range of Shimano Tiagra reels, Ian Miller game rods and proven lures from Pakula, Black Bart, and Mold Craft. Captain Charles Wheeler is one of the best marlin skippers around with 5 world records under his belt along with over 40 Vanuatu records and he is always ready to get anglers onto that next big blue.
