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

During our recent trip to Thailand my husband & 2 others (adult male & 11 year old) hired a private carter from Steve at Phuket Fishing Charters for the day. Original day they booked was windy and the company were great and happily re-scheduled. Pick up from hotel was on time, driver was excellent. Steve greeted them at the office... More

Thanks Emma, Glad as always to hear everyone had a good day fishing in Phuket. How nice is it to enjoy the day's catch so fresh? It sounds like the guys enjoyed the entire day including the island stop over for a snorkel and generally cruising while pulling in fresh lunch and dinner. Your posting a review for Phuket Fishing...

Booked this trip through Steve through a few emails and texts. All handled very well and efficiently. I chose to drive to Chalong rather than get the pick up but the rest of the party turned up right on time. The girls in the office were very efficient. Coffe on arrival and the simple form was easy to complete. Morion... More

A short note to let others know that Steve at Phuket Fishing Charters did a terrific job for us last weekend. It was hard to decide which boat to get after our hotel desk advised me on some boats. The worry was that they just didn.t know anything other than the price and a photo. A check online I found... More

After a few emails back and forth discussing our needs with Steve we booked a charter for the 24th February 2014.

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!

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.

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.
