With so many choices of fishing boats and various standards and prices, it is difficult to find the right operator for your fishing style and budget. I have been in the industry for 13 years and have local knowledge of every boat and crew in the Phuket Fishing fleet. My budget private charters start at only 12,000 baht and range through 23,500 baht and up to luxurt sports fishing vessels at over 100,000 baht per day.My fleet caters for the dedicated deep sea game fisherman and to those preferring a nice day on the water with a mix of fishing, snorkeling and island hopping. The choice is yours.For join-on day trips there is a choice of budget 2,100 baht for the (up to) 12 person boat sharing, holiday outing "not so serious" with the local Thai fishermen or for 3,500 baht trip for the top of the range fishing excursion with tournament standard equipment and crew.Multi-day trips for dedicated fishing or fun boating to the closer islands of Racha Yai and Racha Noi and to world famous Similan Islands are popular also.

What of my better days fishing ever. They are not joking about "fastest boat in phuket". You start the day and head out going 4x faster than all the other boats on the water which means you get to farther and better fishing grounds than the huge boats b/c they don't have the time to get there in the day....

We took the children out for a fishing trip on a windy day, caught a few fishes, went out to Racha Yai and stopped for a few hours and we had a great time! The crew cooked the fishes we caught and the boys were very nice. We wanted to drive out to Chalong Jetty on our own to meet... More

Went on a joint tour. We were only 3 travellers on this tour so it was more like a private charter. Service was excellent, pick up at the hotel on time, quick transfer and off we went, even if hadn't caugjt anything it's a worthwhile trip. The crew were so nice and professional. Caught a couple of Tunas and some... More

Started out trolling and caught 10 or more tuna (threw some back). BIG FUN Then on to Racha Noi (I believe) island for a really nice lunch and snorkeling. Very much recommended for adult and teenagers, Would not be a trip that I would bring young children.

I'll start off by saying I understand you don't always catch fish when you go out. But we didn't even have a chance. My girlfriend and I booked a trip for 4 on the Wahoo. We paid and were taken to a boat that was not the Wahoo. We were not told we would be on a different boat until... More

Hi readers, due to the length of John B's review, I apologize for my equally lengthy reply. As a nominee for the Thailand Tourism Awards and Asia Pacific Tourism Awards, I must address these points clearly. I will start by admitting that on some days, things do not go to plan however we do earnestly try to accommodate many different... More

I took my 7yr old on his birthday together with his 9yr old brother and 70yr old Grandpa. "This was the best birthday ever" Sums up what a great day we had.

Top notch service and boat (the Reelblue). Tasty lunch. Crew members went above and beyond to make our trip and enjoyable one. Positive attitude and genuine dedication from the crew made this an outstanding experience.

Hi and thanks for your review and top rating. This will help me greatly to gain accreditation in the Thailand Tourism Awards and Asia Pacific Tourism Awards. Of course I cannot succeed without the high end Wahoo team who I represent. This is the difference between my boats and other charter operators....high international service standards, great training and mind set... More

Went out today with Alex and Captain Be, great day of fishing. Lunch was beautiful, tried sushimi for the first time and loved it. Unfortunately the fish went quiet in the afternoon, can't do much about that! Would recommend xx

Great day worked hard for the fish did everything you could ask for in a charter even while I was crook Value for money‼️‼️‼️

Management response:

Ha ha....10 points for effort..... a true hard core fisherman. No good hanging around your hotel just because you are crook, you might as well be out on a boat as hanging around the hotel! I will nominate you for a Thailand Tourism Award as "most dedicated fisherman of the year" and sorry for my very slow response. Cheers More

Hi Paul, The boat Thaion is a consistent performer. Captain and crew love their fishing and rarely come home without some success at least. At 56 ft this boat is safe, comfortable and roomy particularly for families and groups. Thaion is one of the best value overnight charter boats in all of Thailand as well.
