Night-fishing is the most popular amongst our visitors. We take a short boat ride to a nearby local fishing spot, drop our baited lines over the side and wait for the fish to start nibbling !

The keen fisherman can hire a larger boat to travel further around the atoll, or even leave the confines of the islands and head out to try their luck in the open waters of the Indian Ocean.

Angling with rod and line from the beach or jetty, under the light of a full moon is a really magical experience, whether you catch anything or not !

At low tide, try collecting shellfish such as periwinkles, and keep a look out for octopus that might be hiding amongst the coral rock in the shallows of the lagoon.

For a real cultural experience, we can arrange a trip with the local tuna fisherman who do this for a living ! Learn how the small ‘live bait’ sprats are caught, and see these being used to attract the large schools of tuna into a feeding-frenzy. You can experience pole-and-line fishing first hand, with a bait-less hook – an environmentally friendly technique that has not changed for centuries.
