If wading and sight casting to double-digit Bonefish, tailing Indo-Pacific Permit and a host of Trevally species on powder white sand flats on an extremely remote Indian Ocean atoll appeals to you then look no further, St Brandon’s Atoll is the destination for you. St Brandon’s (Cargados Carajos Shoals) is a group of over 50 small islands, coral ridges, and vast sand flats that extends 50 km from North to South. Situated 268 nautical miles Northeast of Mauritius’ main island, this area is rich in fish stocks, flora, and fauna. This magical atoll has quickly risen to iconic status in the world of saltwater fly-fishing and for good reason; the flats fishing for Bonefish, Indo-Pacific Permit and a host of Trevally species is simply world class!

Previous seasons on St Brandon’s have been run using a live-aboard mother ship MY Gryphon, as foreigners were not permitted by the Mauritian authorities to stay on the island. However, the last 5 years of hard work have finally paid off! We are excited to announce the beginning of a new era in this project; the St. Brandon’s land-based experience! Guests will be accommodated in a simple but comfortable guesthouse on Raphael Island situated in the fish-rich Northern part of the atoll. Although the guesthouse is by no means luxurious, it is clean and comfortable.  And considering it’s remote location, it’s all a traveling angler needs to enjoy the finest trophy Bonefish, Indo–Pacific Permit, and trophy GT fishing available in the Indian Ocean.
