Apart from spectacular scenery, world famous diving and fascinating cultural activities Santo is home to some of the best fishing in the South Pacific. There are a multitude of offshore seamounts and deep canyons easily accessible from the main town Luganville. Marlin, Wahoo, Spanish mackerel, giant Trevally and numerous species of Tuna including Albacore and Yellowfin abound in these waters. The best surprise is that this fabulous game fish can be caught within a kilometre of land. The great drop offs around the fringing reefs are home to millions of fish including huge schools of baitfish providing a fish feeding ground for pelagic hunters.
The view from out at sea is picture perfect. Beautiful green tropical jungle rising up from an azure blue Pacific Ocean and the ever present promise of the strike. It is enough to keep your memories of Vanuatu alive for years to come.
Espiritu Santo has fantastic game and reef fishing available with fast, safe boats to get you to where the action is. Tuna, Marlin, Wahoo, giant Travelly are a few of the species caught in our amazing waters. Most of our fishing is tag and release.
Some ni-Vanautu fishermen are happy to take you out to catch the illusive Poulet (chicken) fish. Living at depths of 200-300 metres they are amazing served lightly grilled with a good garlic sauce.
