“Awesome Fishing Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

Spent the day fishing aboard the Wahoo 4. Staff was very friendly, if you get motion sickness easily, deep sea fishing might not be for you so be prepared. We were joined by Ting and his crew. They were all excellent... Very firendly and a pleasure to fish with. By far one of the best day trips of my entire 3 week stay in Asia. Record setting 6 sailfish, 24 tuna and 2 mahi mahi all in one day. We could not of asked for a better day or a more professional staff. Thanks Ting and the staff from Wahoo 4!

“Great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2012

I have used Wahoo for the last couple of years on our annual sojourn in Phuket. The fishing in June was very sparse. The captain and deckies were always trying to put us in the right area to connect. Another reason for the paupacy of catch is I feel that the locations around Racha Noi & Yai have been overfished by all the charters that come out of Chalong Bay. I do feel that if different areas were targetted on a rotation basis the fishing would be more exciting. The food and service cannot be faulted as was the dedication of the crew.

Pedro the fisherman.

“Now I know why they call it Wahoo.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2012

I had the pleasure of fishing on Splendour for 3 days with some friends - i gotta say the experience was fantastic. While fishing was the main objective - and they certainly knew where the fish were - the whole trip was a fantastic experience. If you are thinking of a day trip these guys and their boats are the ones to use. The boat is beautiful and we had the luxury of sleeping onboard even though the boat would still be great for a day trip.
The big thing that impressed me was the Wahoo company itself and the crew - they were a key element that made the difference and I know it wasn't just for us - I am sure they treat all their passengers with the same care and sincerity.

“Outstanding service, hospitality and friendship.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2012

A couple of mates (Dave & Niel) and I formed a team to partake in the 2012 Wahoo Game Fishing Tourament held in early February off the Similan Islands. We had decided to use one of the Wahoo fleet, Splendor as our Mother ship (eat and sleep on board) and fish off another boat Wahoo 4. We motored out to the Similan's on Spledor with Wahoo, a slower Thai boat, meeting us out there, Unfortunatly Wahoo 4 hit a submerget log on the way out and damaged her prop so we had no choice but to fish off Splendor. Were we disappointed, absoultly not!!. Firstly the boat is extreamly well fitted out with three seperate cabins, two with ensuites, great enclosed flybridge with internal access from the main saloon. The crew were very experienced and made sure we were well looked after. We did not need to do a thing. Food was great and beer icy cold. We were lucky to also have on board Joe, who is the Wahoo Fleet Master. His knowledge of the waters and where to catch the fish was second to none. Our boat won three prizes: the best boat in the competition, best Sail Fish and Best GT (mind you my mate Niel pull in those two not me!!) We were so impressed with the professionalism and friendship show by all at Wahoo we have already booked our boat for the 2013 tourament. we also intend to do a mid year pratice run. What an experience!!
