Samui Deep-Sea Trolling Charter

Our trolling tour involves dragging lures or baited hooks behind a moving boat to mimic prey, attracting larger fish. This technique covers vast water areas efficiently, increasing the chances of a catch. Moreover, it targets multiple fish species and allows anglers to access deeper waters where big game fish thrive, making it an advantageous method for both novices and experienced fishermen.

Deep-sea jigging in Samui is an adrenaline-pumping technique using rhythmic rod action. Anglers target species like mackerel, grouper, and trevally. This method allows for targeting fast-moving and aggressive fish in Samui’s deeper waters.

Samui Deep-Sea Night Fishing Charter

Our night fishing tour presents a unique opportunity to target nocturnal species. Anglers often catch snapper, grouper, and squid under the moonlit waters. The serene environment paired with the thrill of the unknown makes it a favorite among many fishing enthusiasts.

I hired the 71foot catamaran for a 6 hour sunset cruise for my 40th birthday. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a more perfect way to celebrate! Chris was extremely helpful and guided me through the options to make it one of the best experiences for me and all 35 of my guests. The boat itself was beautiful, exquisitely maintained and really had the wow factor as we were transported to the pier and invited on board. I would like to say very big thank you to the captain and his crew, who were so helpful and went out of their way to make sure everyone had an amazing time. I trusted the captain to take us to the best areas with calm water for swimming, and as sheltered as possible from the wind or rain should it make an appearance. He did just that and we were not disappointed, despite my concerns about the weather the previous day! The crew ensured the highest safety at all times while we danced, bounced away on the deck and jumped and swam until after sunset! I thoroughly recommend Chris and the crew to make your experience unforgettable !

We chartered a 65-foot motor yacht, and the experience was terrific! Chris and his team are very well organised, and every attention is given in the planning of the trip and sharing weather reports. The boat was very well maintained and spotlessly clean. The Captain and crew were friendly and fun, and nothing was too much effort for them! They went out if their way to make out trip exciting and memorable. We had never caught fish before, but on our trip, we caught over 20 fish on light tackle fishing rods. A lot of fun and most enjoyable! The snacks were delicious and the drinks ice ciold. The scenery and tropical islands were breathtaking! We were picked up from our hotel and driven to and from the pier where to boat was moored. I highly recommend contacting Chris at Samui Luxury Boat if you want to enjoy a memorable, world-class boating experience in beautiful Thailand!
