Our vessels are moored at the Waterfront bar and grill which is the perfect place for an afternoon drink or evening meal on your return to Port Vila.

After a 15 minute cruise from Port Vila harbour, you're in 1000 meters of deep blue water where Yellowfin tuna, Mahi Mahi and Marlin abound. This combined with the number of lee coasts guaranteeing relatively calm seas, contribute to make of Vanuatu the Ultimate destination for Big Game fishing.

In order to protect the marine ecosystem, whenever it is feasible, we adopt the tag and release technique for all protected species such as billfishes.
