Long day fishing out of Watamu

Up to 4 people - 10 hours

Depending on the time of year a long day fishing gives us the opportunity to try various fishing techniques for different species of fish, such as trolling for Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Tuna and other game fish then live baiting later in the day for Marlin or deep jigging or bottom fishing.

A long day also gives us time to visit different areas. Some of our best Marlin fishing grounds are a fair way offshore and can only be fished on a full day trip. We provide all conventional tackle from 30 to 130 pound line, lures and bait. A cold box of assorted soft drinks , mineral water and a few beers. We do not provide lunch boxes.

 

Fishing out of Watamu on a long day gives a wide range of options. We usually fish on the Watamu Banks in July, August and September. We often run north to the Malindi banks in October, November and December which is the best time of year for sailfish. Over the peak Malrin season in January, February and March we generally fish further off shore in areas such as the Rips.

Short day fishing out of Watamu

Up to 4 people - 6 hours

Depature time Dependant on tide.

Very similar fishing methods as the full day but we are restricted on how far we can travel. Ideal for the beginners, the keen fisherman who has flight connections or family trips. Also ideal for whale watching trips. Tackle, bait and a cold box of assorted drinks provided.

Fishing out of Watamu on a short day limits how far we can go. We usually fish on the Watamu Banks but may run north to the Malindi banks in October, November and December if the sailfish are around.
