Trolling Fishing Tour in Trincomalee

Trolling Fishing Tour in Trincomalee

The Trolling Fishing Tour in Trincomalee is a private and memorable experience designed for professional fishermen and experts . If you are looking for big catches and you want to fish with multiple rods, this tour will make your adventure more engaging and enjoyable. No other passengers will be on board and we will be happy to assist you with any special requests. Under the guide of an expert boatman you will sail the Indian Ocean in a comfortable, safe and brand new boat. It is equipped with four fish rod holders. Usually in the morning the ocean is calmer and you can enjoy its fresh breeze. During the day the temperature gets much higher and only short boat trips are recommended. Therefore, for an optimal experience, our tour is scheduled at 5:00 AM. Although you can fish almost everywhere in Trincomalee, we prefer the secluded area of Nilaveli for our tours. Less touristic and crowded, it has a beautiful exotic beach we recommend to visit. Nilaveli is located north of Trincomalee with Pigeon Island just in front of it. We will pick you up at your hotel and will drive you by tuk-tuk to the departure point. Among others, typical catches are Barracudas, Marlins, Yellowfin Tunas, Frigate Tunas, Skipjack Tunas, Groupers and Snappers. Thanks to a combination of seasonality and local knowledge, you will be guided to the areas you are most likely to find your preferred catch. A well known fishing technique practiced locally consists in following Spinner Dolphins. The Spinner Dolphins are the most common cetacean species of Trincomalee. Their pods are often observed following Yellowfin Tunas. By using the highly visible pods of Spinners, local fishermen take advantage of this association to locate and catch the Yellowfins.

If you are lucky with your catch, Chef Priyantha will cook it for you in our restaurant, or if you prefer you can take it away with you.

A complimentary breakfast will be served at the end of the tour. Therefore, if you plan to visit Pigeon Island in the same day, we recommend the tour scheduled at 10:00 AM. This way you will have enough time to enjoy your snacks and to get some relax before the new trip.
