What a day! It's always a great start when the boat leaves on time, the weather is good, the crew is obviously knowledgeable and in good spirits. The day went to plan. Plenty of strikes, on a nearby boat a marlin was hooked (and sadly lost). On our boat there were tuna (landed), Mahi Mahi (hooked but lost), a large barracuda (landed), wahoo (landed), and other big buggers hooked and (sadly) lost. It won't be long before I return to Port Villa with others to try again, and there's no doubt I'll be booking fishing trips again with Wild Blue Fishing Charters. Trev

Wild Blue Gamefishing - Shogun - Capt Peter Phillips. Of all places I have fished anywhere in the world, this trip tops them all as the fishery is so untouched (we did not see another powered boat in 5 days) and the skipper Pete has Blue Marlin and dog tooth tuna fishing down pat. He puts you onto many varied and large fish. His tackle is first class; fresh line, solid gear and lures that work. The deckhand - Tommy - really knows his stuff and runs 6 rods with ease. All of which is supported by really fantastic food throughout the day.
It was the reputation of Pete the skipper, boat and deckie that made me book in the first place after some very well known Australian anglers referred him.
Fishing near volcanoes and 2000ft dropoffs is a trip not to be missed. Just book it.

Went out for the 8 hour charter, long story short caught a 40kg sailfish, 7.5kg Mahi Mahi, 80kg Blue marlin and a few small tuna. Great staff which are very supportive and friendly. Certainly worth the money and when you are catching fish like that there is no better way to spend it! Recommend it to anyone :)

This is our second time in Vanuatu for holiday and we stayed at the same place for accommodation at the Nautilus Water Sports/Wild Blue Fishing Charters.The accommodation is very affordable, comfortable, close to town,shops,supermarket and banks.Our two children had done their Scuba Diving Course on our first visit with success and absolutely enjoyed it.The highlight of our second visit is when our friend and my husband went out on a four hour charter and in just a matter of 10/15 minutes out there,our friend Brian caught a Marlin. He has been trying all his life to catch one and it did happen while we we're on holiday.Thanks to Pete of Wild Blue Fishing Charters, was so awesome.This is one holiday our friend would never forget. I would recommend to everyone who is going to Vanuatu for a Scuba diving and fishing experience. Excellent and very helpful hosts and scuba diving staff

We have scuba dived with nautilus many times over the last fifteen years and always been extremely happy with thier professionalism. Last Saturday was the first time we went fishing with Pete and I am very glad we did!
We booked Shogun for a 4 hour charter and have to say everything was fantastic . We only landed one mahi mahi and had a marlin spit the hook but we were all very happy and will be returning to try for better luck..
Harry was did great job with all the sets and preparing our fish well, which our friend and host John from B&B WAVES ON BUKURA cooked a lovely meal from our catch later that evening.

John is the lucky one to head out with Peter again next Saturday ..... I am jealous!!!
