I have been in the industry for 13 years and have local knowledge of every boat and crew in the Phuket Fishing fleet. My budget private charters start at only 12,000 baht and range through 23,500 baht and up to luxurt sports fishing vessels at over 100,000 baht per day.My fleet caters for the dedicated deep sea game fisherman and to those preferring a nice day on the water with a mix of fishing, snorkeling and island hopping. The choice is yours.For join-on day trips there is a choice of budget 2,100 baht for the (up to) 12 person boat sharing, holiday outing "not so serious" with the local Thai fishermen or for 3,500 baht trip for the top of the range fishing excursion with tournament standard equipment and crew.Multi-day trips for dedicated fishing or fun boating to the closer islands of Racha Yai and Racha Noi and to world famous Similan Islands are popular also. « less

After a few emails back and forth discussing our needs with Steve we booked a charter for the 24th February 2014. Steve was great to deal with and having been in Thailand for over 15 years provided great information honestly and freely based on his extensive experience, he also was able to cater to almost any need we had for...

This was the 3rd time we have used Steve's services and boats and it was another great trip. We went out on Christmas eve as this was the only day Steve had a boat available for us. Great day out on the water with the kdis and caught about 12 skip jacks. Crew spoke very limited English but communication was... More

After reading rave reviews about this company we rang and after a discussion decided on booking a private charter instead of an add on trip. Great we thougt! The last boat left was also the cheapest and that should have been the first warning sign. But after speaking to Steve (lovely guy btw) on the phone and discussing what kind... More

Well after all of the praise and good words about the charter I was not sure as to why you gave a low score and remarked that I sold you a trip that you did not order. Then I realised and went immediateely in person to the fishing boat owner's shop to make a formal complaint. For all those reading... More

I would like to save all individuals from booking a fishing trip through this company. Not only was the driver 45 minutes late arriving to pick us up from the hotel, but I can honestly tell you that I NOT ONCE had my hand on a fishing rod. Several lines trailed behind the moving boat for part of the day... More

Well "Hell Hath No Fury..." like a woman who missed the big one! First, is the main reason for you venom laced attack is that you felt cheated by a "bait and switch" assumption.

Trip was nice but the fish stocks are clearly very poor. Nothing but tiny skip jacks. The views are nice. Treat this as a boat ride around the islands.

Unfortunately I have no record of you or what day you may have been on one of our boats so all I can say is that the day you supposedly came with us, the fishing was not good. I cannot agree with you to tell people to go choose another country for fishing. As we do so often have really... More

Dear Steve, Thanks for arranging the fishing trip. All went well but the sea was a bit choppy. The staff were excellent and worked hard to find find fish but we only managed to get some small tunas. Missed a small sailfish but hooked a bigger one which unfortunately escaped promptly after the knot broke off at the hook. Lunch... More

We booked Wahoo 4 as part of our trip to Phuket in April to celebrate my birthday. Steve was fantastic to deal with and the crew were wonderful. Lots of Tuna were caught, the food was superb and the swimming off the back of the boat was a great way to break up the day. Definitely a highlight of our... More

As a seasoned Thailand traveler taking 6 first timers i called on the help from Steve Anderson from phuket fishing charters for everything from day trips shopping, elephants, island hopping, snorkling atv trips and of course fishing! Cannot recommend a better or more helpful bloke to deal with, he made a potentially extremely frustrating (for me) trip an absolute breeze... More
