I went by myself for a half day (8:00am - 2:00pm) at TopCats last week and for the money I was left underwhelmed. The guides did not speak English. There were two of them looking after as many as five anglers at a time and on more than one occasion, multiple anglers' lines were out of the water for 10-15... More

Thanks for your review useful comments. We are teaching our guides english and some are better than others but other staff did speak english that were working. Must remember you are visiting Thailand and not native language. Our guides are here to help not fish for the customer. More

I'd done a bit of research on fishing in Koh Samui as we were going there for a 40th. Found that the inshore reefs were almost fished out. Top Cats had plenty of good reviews however, and for good reason! We had a fairly large group, about 12 of us for a half day in the afternoon. The first fish... More

Spent a week in Koh Samui with my fiancee in early June and came across "Top Cats" while searching for things to do on the island. The pics on the website (and reviews on Trip Advisor) looked awesome so I booked myself on a half day fishing excursion (8am - 2pm) and had an absolute blast! We were staying at... More

The guide was fantastic and all staff were very pleasant. Food was great and the drinks cold. Well worth the money if you... More

Boyfriend and I booked a 6 hour day during our visit in April. While it was a bit pricey 6000 baht all in plus another 1200 by the time we were done with food and snacks from the bar throughout the day... but we felt it was money well spent.

Spent a 6 hr session 8.00am til 2.00pm at Top Cat Fishery, guided by Yut and what a great time I had. Having prev fished at Bungsamran Lake where the fish surrender quite easily fishing at Top Cat was far more challenging, more like "proper fishing". Yut was really helpful and genuinly wanted me to catch. My targets were red... More
