Tranquility Island Stay Away
Fishing In Vanuatu with Wild Blue Fishing Charters
We have added a new trip to our line up this year. We have used this destination some time ago for some of our spearfishing charters and we have now brought it back on line as its a great destination and providing amazing fishing options and its a lot easier on everyone than the Epi option.
Tranquility is located on Mosso Island which is North of Port Vila in Havannah Harbor. The accommodation is still very basic, island style however clean, tidy and comfortable.
Now for the FISHING: We now have 3 X F.A.D’s “Fish Aggregating Devices” in the area and they are very accessible from Tranquility, all within approximately 30 min.
The Marlin Highway is just a little further out than the F.A.D’s. The Marlin Hwy is a trench that runs for 100’s of miles north and south and the depths run from 1000m to 2500m. We also find schools of yellowfin in these ares when in season.
Mataso Island, Mataso Sea Mount and the famous Monument Rock are also very accessible for a day trip from Tranquility. These are great locations for trolling, casting and jigging.
Cooks Reef is another great option for jigging and casting which is another day trip from Tranquility.
For the species of fish available please refer to the “Species Calender” in the menu above.
The accommodation at Tranquility is basic however more than adequate for a fishing adventure. We have had a few anglers bring their non fishing partners and they have loved kicking back on the beach during the day or visiting the turtle farm or doing some bush walking on the tracks around Mosso Island. There is also a P.A.D.I dive center there if the non fishing partner wanted to get a few dives in.
There is limited internet service as well so you can get a text or email away if you need to stay in touch. For anyone that’s coming fishing with us on extended trips in Vanuatu I would recommend purchasing a Digicel or T.V.L Sim card on arrival. I find Digicel giving the best coverage currently. These are available at the airport or locations around town and are cheaper than using roaming from you country of origin. We can even organize one for you if you let us know in advance.
Here are some pictures of the accommodation that we are using. There is also a dormatry available at a reduced price.
For before and after the trip we have accommodation at our premises available.
We have also renovated our Bunk house and Studio apartment which for those that don’t know are located right in the heart of town. If you are looking to do some day charters out of Port Vila this is just perfect, down the stairs and onto the boat.
Bunk House Accommodation
The boat hire is 150,000Vt per day for Tanveral on live-away trips. Currency Converter This is for the whole boat so just divide the cost by the number of anglers for your per person rate. This includes your lunch and refreshments during the day. If you chose day charters out of Port Vila the rate is 130,000Vt per day. Don’t forget we have Stormbird available for day charters at a much less rate.
Now for those of you that haven’t done a trip like this with us we organize your pick up from the airport or you just hop into a taxi and come to our premises which is in the heart of Port Vila. You stay with us in the accommodation listed above.
Everything is provided in the cost of the charter. Top quality game fishing tackle, popping and jigging gear and stick bait gear, 100s of lures, bottled water a limited amount of soft drinks, (if you drink a bottle of bourbon a night and you need a crate of coke I recommend you bring a box or 2), The food on board the boat is fantastic and is all prepared by my better half Leanne and there is always a heap of snacks and fresh fruit. We also swap fish for fruit in the islands. The evening meals in the villages are very good and we bring along steaks, sausages and chops to add to the local produce so don’t worry you wont loose any weight. Breakfasts is usually bacon and eggs and home made pancakes and for the first and last travel days cereal, fruit and tea and coffee are all included. For those flying in on weekends the bottle shops close here in Vanuatu at Saturday lunch time so if you let us know in advance we can order and pick up any alcohol for you and you can sort out payment when you arrive. We also don’t recommend changing too much or any money at the airport currency exchange as the rate is usually not that good. We can organise money exchange for you when you get here if need be.
Most guests usually stay another day or two in our accommodation at the end of the fishing trip and at the completion of your fishing holiday we will drop you back to the airport.
Deep Sea Fishing In Vanuatu on Tanveral
Now for those that don’t know we do these trips on Tanveral. Its a 29ft Blackfin specifically designed for long range fishing adventure. We carry plenty of fuel and water and have lots of refrigeration. We can normally cool a box of beer at a time for those that enjoy a cool one. There is no refrigeration available on the islands so we set you up with an esky or chilly-bin at night for anything you need kept cold. We also have on board phone and camera charging facilities. Our boats are also in survey and all our crew are fully accredited with the Vanuatu Maritime Authority. Something worth checking before booking some operators in Vanuatu.
As for numbers on these trips we have done up to 6 anglers. Its too many. Four is the most I think is good and workable and if you can afford it I think less numbers are even better. Two or three is ideal. You have far more room and rod time.
To read what others think about our operation go to:
As I mentioned earlier the price is due to go up for these trips so get in quick. The current price is 150,000VTV for the boat per day and an additional $100.00 approx. per person per night for accommodation depending where you choose to stay. To convert to you currency go here.
