Zanzibar our beach getaway has marvelous fishing almost all the year. During the deep sea fishing we offer visitors the unique opportunity to cruise out to sea with a Zanzibari fisherman and see what fishing for a living is really all about. Our large twin-screw craft is equipped to the highest international safety standards. Our experienced skipper can instruct novices and talk fishermen through any procedure in the course of reeling in their catch. Tag and release is generally encouraged for all big fish unless it is the fisherman's first ever catch, his biggest to date, or if it is likely to be an East African or All Africa record. Yellow fin Tuna are best fished in August to November provides really good sport for the big, one of the strongest fish around. Big Blue Marlin and a number of Striped and Black Marlin are also found, as well as Sailfish. November to March is the billfish season. Striped Marlin are the most prolific, sometimes showing in packs of up to ten. Large Blue and Black Marlin are also quite common during this period.
