Koh Racha consists of 2 islands situated only 9.7 NM south of Phuket making them easily accessible for day charters, but at the same time provide some incredibly rewarding fishing action. The islands also house some beautiful bays with excellent coral making them perfect for a swim and snorkel if guests wish to test the warm Phuket waters.
The fishing season runs throughout the year in Phuket, however the High Season (November - April) is the best time for Sailfish, Tuna, and Mackerel, whilst the South West Monsoon Season (April - November) also sees the arrival of the Dorado and Wahoo.
Trolling is the most popular form of fishing here, and common catches around the islands include Sailfish, Wahoo, Dorado (Mahi Mahi), Barracuda and multitudes of Skipjack, Longtail and Kawa Kawa Tuna.
Jigging off the small sea mountain to the south of Racha Noi produces good results whilst during June and July, when there is an abundance of bait fish, popping for GT’s is possible.
For guests interested in bottom fishing we also have locations where we can fish for Snapper and Grouper.
