Racha Yai / Racha Noi Island
Situated 18 km south of Phuket are the Racha Islands. They are very popular for day trip excursions due to their close proximity to Phuket but they produce very rewarding catches, as well as beautiful scenery and great options for swimming and snorkeling.
Trolling is the most popular form of fishing here, and common catches around the islands include Sailfish, Wahoo, Dorado (Mahi Mahi), Barracuda and multitudes of Skipjack, Longtail and Kawa Kawa Tuna.
Jigging off the small sea mountain to the south of Racha Noi produces good results whilst during June and July when there is an abundance of bait fish popping for GT's is possible.
For guests interested in bottom fishing we also have locations where we can fish for Snapper and Grouper.
The fishing season runs throughout the year here in Phuket, however the High Season (November - April) is the best time for Sailfish, Tuna, and Mackerel, whilst the South West Monsoon Season (April - November) also sees the arrival of the Dorado and Wahoo.
