Port Vila: Vanuatu - P&O Cruises "Reef and Sports Fishing"

Hi,

I'm heading out on a P&O cruise to Vila and am interested in going on a "Shore Excursion" called "Reef and sports Fishing", but there is little info online about it. As a keen fisherman I'd like to take the chance to fish these waters, even if just for a few lazy hours in the mid-morning.

Has anyone been on or heard anything about this excursion? Or alternatively does anyone know what operator P&O cruises use?

Cheers

You may have this info or not, but here is the description from the shore tour newsletter.

"Reef & Sport Fishing - (approx 4 hours) Vanuatu has a reputation for some superb sport fishing, all within 15 minutes journey by boat from Port Vila. Spend a morning or afternoon fishing around some of the untouched reefs of Efate or Mele Bay. The sea mounts off Pango Point boast fish such as Yellofin Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi and Barracuda. If offshore conditions are unfavourable, head into the calmer water of the inside reefs to target reef dwellers including coral trout, emperor and trevally. The vessle comes equipped with high end tackle covering line classes 13 - 27kg and includes a custom made bait/rod table. Please remember, you have purchased the opportunity to fish, not a guarantee of catching fish. Fishing for trophy fish is catch and release. We are not able to store your catch onboard, any non-trophy fish will be kept by the fishing boat crew. There are no restroom facilities onboard the vessel."

Mitch Clement runs Harbour Fishing Charters http://www.melebeach.com.vu/fishing.html Good bloke, great fishing experience, 3 people max on his boat. You can take some of your catch too, unlike most.

He also works to the cruise ship schedules so if you are interested contact him ASAP as he tend to be booked out by those in the know,

Hi There,

Pete from Wild Blue Fishing charters here. We provide diving on the cruise boat for P&O and the trip is called Reef and Sports fishing. that needs to be booked via the tour desk on the boat or I think you can do it online via the P&O web site. We also run another vessel called Shogun that can be charter directly with us. We do lots of charters for P&O passengers on this vessel if its available on the date you are coming. The cost for this boat is about AUD$720.00 for the whole boat. If there is a party of you we then divide this cost by the number of anglers. The other option is Mitch Clements at http://www.melebeach.com.vu/fishing.html . He has a smaller vessel that would be cheaper.

Regards Pete
