And the most exclusive fishing destination? What truly distinguishes Desroches Island in The Seychelles as one of the most desirable fishing destinations in the world is the combination of abundant marine life and luxurious island accommodation alongside this aqua marine adventure. Desroches Island is the perfect destination for fishermen travelling with non-fishing partners and families - offering that exquisite contrast of exclusive comforts coupled with spectacular fishing on and around the Amiranties Islands.
From warmer Indian Ocean species on the east coast to the cold-water fish of the Atlantic Ocean west coast, deep sea fishing in South Africa is not just about a trophy on your wall – it's about being out there on the African waters, tasting the moment, in the company of friends and a responsible skipper, enjoying the chase and fight of something like a good yellowfin tuna out of Hout Bay.
