About Phuket Fishing Charters
With so many choices of fishing boats and various standards and prices, it is difficult to find the right operator for your fishing style and budget. 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.

You troll for about 90 minutes then bottom fish and then troll again. We only caught one king mackerel trolling but caught lots and lots of grouper bottom fishing. Lunch was cooked on the boat and we ate our fresh catch which was delicious. Abu,...More

Hi, due to the distance from Phuket to the fishing areas, there are no half day trips and any close "local spots" are heavily fished by the locals so not lots of action usually. A day charter starts at 12,000 baht or a... More
