This adventure is for those looking to explore new frontiers and experience locations rarely seen let alone fished. Target monster giant trevally and dogtooth tuna and experience power that will match the limits of any tackle. When hooked, these encounters usually end quickly and convincingly, with anglers left speechless. Inshore, encounter brutal red bass, coral trout and green job fish. Offshore the remote seamounts offer extreme fishing for wahoo, yellowfin and marlin.
Fish aboard our Edgewater 32 Sport Fisher, Edgewater 170 Sport Fisher and two H-Craft sport fishing skiffs. Anglers will rotate and have the opportunity to experience all options available on this adventure. Your mothership, a converted Rick James steel trawler offers bespoke air-conditioned accommodation for up to 8 persons, spacious saloon and dining. The ideal vessel for exploring the Vanuatu islands. Each evening recount your big fish videos on the big screen, while enjoy a superb meal before retiring to your cabin in anticipation for the next day.
