The trip starts at 7am in the morning from La Digue. This may seem early, but it is the perfect time of day for bottom fishing and trolling, since the sun rises at around 7 every morning in the Seychelles, regardless of the time of year.
The fishing tour starts near Anse Réunion at the small Maki Shop, where you will board Jonathan's boat. Jonathan or a member his team know all of the best fishing spots, and are able to find the best ones to fit the weather on the day. This all but guarantees a successful fishing trip! All of the fishing spots on the tour are located in the waters surrounding La Digue. This ensures that, even if no fish bite for a while, you can enjoy the spectacular views of La Digue and its surrounding islands. The tour is also not explicitly for experiences bottom fishers and trollers, but also for those who want to try it out for the first time.
After 2pm, you will slowly sail back to the starting point on La Digue, ensuring you have firmer ground under your feet at around 3pm.
The tour includes bottom and trolling fishing.
Possible catches: tuna, kingfish, dorado, redsnapper, job fish, cropper, jackfish.
