Fishing around Namotu is great all year long with many different species on offer. Our fishing boat, the Mai Kana, supplies fish for our restaurant and each week has a resident fisherman who is in charge of ensuring we are fully stocked so guests can enjoy fresh Yellowfin tuna Spanish Mackerel sashimi, barbecued ruby snapper, and many more tasty delights.
The fisherman will usually head out in the morning and afternoon and guests are more than welcome to jump on board and do some angling. There is no better place to get a taste of fishing than Namotu because it’s so close; most of the time our fishing boat is within sight of the island so you’re not trapped in lengthy charters and can always head back in for lunch.
