I was fortunate to celebrate my 60th birthday with my wife Debbie at Alphonse; the fishing, service and environment exceeded our expectations by some margin, definitely put this destination on your bucket list! This has to be one of the finest salt-water fly fishing destinations on the planet, the variety of fish is amazing, including bonefish, giant trevalley, milk fish,... More

My wife and I joined 4 other couples and spent 4 days on this paradise in Feb 2015. Flying in was fantastic as we saw the coral reefs surrounding the atoll for quite a few kilometers. We received a huge warm welcome with fresh coconut milk and the friendly staff immediately made us feel at home. The setting was spectacular... More

Surely there is no better place on earth! Massive GT's, Dogtooth Tuna, Bonefish aplenty, Wahoo etc. We swam with turtles, watched them being born, saw dozens of massive Rays (and swam with them), snorkeled the most incredible reefs etc. There was so much to do and we were treated like royalty at every turn... It was truly amazing. Fantastic staff.... More

I have fished the St Francois on Jan 10-17, and Alphonse island only (non-guided) on Jan 17-24, 2015. Both weeks were very interesting and exciting. Bonefish were plentiful. I was lucky to catch a big barracuda (over 100 pounds), a 83 cm GT, a nice size triggerfish. The total number of fish species I was able to land with a... More

Our family of 3 ( son17 yrs) had the privilege of spending one week on Alphonse island over Christmas. My son and I, walked the flats every alternate day and with the help of our eagle eyed, friendly,experienced guides, we managed to land numerous bonefish. If we had practised our casting beforehand, we could have caught some big GT's. Our... More
