Sport fishing charter is available in Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, Huahine and Rangiroa in various size
fishing boats, from 20 foot center consoles, to 45' sportsfishers. Any
of these daily charters can easily be arranged from your hotels. Costs
vary depending on boat size and location, and start at about $550 per
day. Fishing takes place outside the lagoons, trawling for small tuna,
mahi mahi, yahoo and various types of billfish. This is not as good as
Mexico or Australia, but more like Hawaii, with comparable type of fish.
Fly fishing or fishing from shore or in the lagoons is almost nonexistent
due to the shallowness of the lagoons and the type of fish present.
We provide some phone numbers and contacts for fishing charters in the
islands pages in this website.
