Alphonse has in the past been marketed mainly to fly fishing fanatics and all the amazing reviews bear testament to its reputation as the best salt water fly fishing in the world. I am hoping that some of the guys considering a trip will read my review and TAKE YOUR WIVES!!! I threatened my husband with the cost of a... More

During a fly fishing trip in search of Giant Trevally, I could not help but get a couple dives in while in the Indian Ocean. Fortunately, Sam and Lucy of the Alphonse dive team are all about making it happen. After a brief chat with Sam I found that I could work in a dive or two without missing much,... More

Although renowned for its fly fishing, diving on the outer reef was an experience I will never forget and one that should be promoted more by Alphonse! The diversity of life under the water was just spectacular - 1000's of tropical fish everywhere you turned, turtles, nurse sharks, GTs, barracuda, sea horses, corals.......the list would just go on. There was... More

For 30 years I have done a salt water fly fishing experience every 18 months and covered most of the destinations we all know off. Alphonse is the only one I have returned to having made three trips there in 2000, 2003 and now again in 2015 and it just as good if not better than ever. Accommodation and ambience... More

The beauty of the area, accommodations, service, quality of food were all "10's" on a scale of 1-10. I loved the quietness and secluded feel of the island, the bikes were great! I loved the outdoor shower. The bonefishing on the flats was unsurpassed. Guides were skilled, friendly and engaging.

The staff and accommodations are among the best I have experienced. The bone fishing is off the charts, twenty fish days are a regular occurrence with catches regularly including fish in the 6 to 7 lb class. To me the other fish available, triggers, milk, GTs and permit are what really sets this destination apart. Did a half day of... More

I went to Alphonse expecting good fishing and it certainly didn't let me down. It was the greatest fishing I've ever experienced and the water and landscape was pristine. It looked like no one else had ever been there. In addition the food was fantastic and I can't say enough about the staff, they went out of their way to... More

Moonlit morning, easy jog on sandy jungle trails. A feral rooster's pre-dawn crow as anglers go their way. Quiet breakfast, fresh croissants, to each one's own desire. Structures, colors, vibrant reefs, good-natured watchful crew. New fish to see, fresh fish to eat, fish stories at the bar. Hatchling turtle nightlife, too, how fortunate we are!
