Similan Islands

3 days / 2 nights

Similan Islands

The Similans are a truly magical destination, not only an amazing fishing destination but also a stunning National Marine Park. Situated 65 NM North West from our base in Ao Chalong, the Similan Islands consist of 9 idyllic granite islands covered in lush vegetation with stunning beaches.

Overview

The region, by far, offers the best fishing opportunities from Phuket. 16 NM west from the ranger station on Island 4 is the famed Don Mai seamount. Here the water rises from 200 m to around 75 m and is the best location to troll for Black Marlin. The seamount and FAD’s are also populated with large Wahoo and Dorado, Sailfish, GT and Yellow Fin and Skipjack Tuna.

Jigging around the FAD’s can also produce good results, as can night time bottom fishing for GT, Grouper, Snapper and a large number of other bottom fish. The drop off to the south East of Island 1 also produces good action with another possibility of catch Marlin.

If you’re a keen angler the opportunity to fish the arguably the best grounds in Asia should not be missed.

Please Note

  • The Similan Islands are only open between October and April due to sea conditions
  • The Similan Islands are a protected National Park and it is illegal to fish within a 3 NM radius of the islands
