Are you a single angler whose buddies are into golf, not fishing? Are you looking forward to a serious fishing adventure where you can get to fish with other like minded anglers? Now here is your chance. Get on board on one of our 2019 scheduled Extreme GT and Dogtooth Adventures, ideal for single anglers willing to join others to make up a group.
Together with your new found fishing buddies, you can get to experience extreme Vanuatu fishing, targeting large GT’s and dogtooth tuna – two of the most challenging species to locate, hook and land. These fish are armed with razor-sharp teeth, challenging you and your tackle as they make blistering deep runs around the reefs and rocky terrain. GT and doggie encounters will leave you speechless, more often than not ending in despair. But the challenge in landing one of these monsters is what it’s all about. Aside from GTs and dogtooth, you will also encounter a variety of species including red bass, green job fish and a coral trout.
Upon arrival, we’ll welcome you at the airport, help you with your bags and transfer you to our very own, secluded Trees and Fishes Angler’s Retreat. Not only is our location abundant with Instagram-worthy backdrops, it’s located right on the fishing grounds. On a typical day, you will be treated like a king – served a gourmet breakfast before heading out fishing – at the end of the day enjoy a well earned ale waiting for you at the bar. Then relax while developing your strategy for the next day before enjoying your gourmet dinner overlooking the spectacular bay and islands beyond.
Providing unparalleled comfort and space for up to five anglers, our three US-built Edgewater 32-foot Centre Console Sport Fishers are the biggest boats in its class. With the boat’s twin 250hp Yamaha 4 strokes, you can get to the fishing grounds fast, optimising each fishing day. Though fast, the trip will be smooth which will give you a soft, comfortable ride every time. In addition, you don’t have to worry about rod handling and storage as our boats have plenty of space for your gear and ours.
After a hard day of fishing, it will be comforting to know that you have Trees and Fishes waiting for you. Trees and Fishes Anglers Retreat is a private and secluded waterfront lodge that offers an amazing and remote location just right near the fishing grounds. You will be truly relaxed with its well-appointed, air-conditioned rooms each with their own private ensuite. Right on the waters edge is where you will find the social hub and the laid back dining area. If you wish to relax, you can take advantage of an anglers massage or simply unwind with your new found fishing friends as you watch the sun setting over the pristine, turquoise waters of the Coral Sea. While our cascading 2 level pool adjacent to the bar offers the perfect place to cool down with a beer after a big day on the water.
Here at Trees and Fishes, we value great dining. Nothing beats sharing a dinner with your fishing buddies, talking about the days events over a great meal. That is why when staying and fishing with us, you’re going to enjoy our highly renowned gourmet breakfasts and dinners each evening while taking in the relaxing atmosphere of our retreat.

The Ultra Coral Australia Xmas party with Ocean Blue fishing adventures! What an amazing time we had! Thanks to everyone including Andrea Traverso and team for putting us onto the fish, we gained heaps of knowledge and that there is more pain beyond the pain you think you know, and also the crew at Trees and fishes private retreat for the 5 star food and stay.
Can not fault one thing. Everyone so so friendly and helpful. We choose Trees and Fishes for the location and the fishing trips from the resort, and may I say we could not have made a better choice. So well organized. The food, and fishing was amazing. We will be returning again.
Thank you for an amazing trip! We all had an absolute ball and are over the moon with our hall. We had a great mix and lots of variety and glad I got them to do some jigging on the last day as well so see the power of those Doggies. I am going to have to come back on my own for the live aboard at some stage (leave pass permitting!)
