Fishing is one of the most popular and highly celebrated sports in the Vava’u group of islands, with several organizations spearheading annual competitions for different fishing categories. Whether you’re a seasoned fisherman or recreational angler, the species of reef and fish you will find in Tongan waters will make for a rewarding fishing experience. Among these species are the Blue, Black, and Striped Marlins, Swordfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Mahimahi, Short Bill Spearfish, Giant Trevally, and tons more.
Most companies offer daytrip fishing tours, though you also have the option of availing fishing packages for tourists which already include accommodations, meals, boat transfers, water and land activities, and cultural tours. Sailing out with a skipper will get you inside information and tips on the ideal spots for specific fish species in Vava’u, so make sure you don’t miss out on the Tongan fishing experience.
