About Deep sea fishing in Trincomalee

Located on the eastern coastline of Sri Lanka, Trincomalee is one of the most perfect locations for anglers to test their abilities as this beautiful location offers some of the most plentiful fishing grounds in the country.

Species like Grouper, Snapper Emperor and Bonefish are some of the highlights found close to the coastline while Indian mackerel, Spanish mackerel, Seer fish, Kingfish, Barracuda, Barramundi, Jackfish, Trevally and Tuna are found a small distance away from the shore. Sailfish, Swordfish, Marlin, and Shark are found even further away.

The boat will pick you up from the dock at 6 a.m. or 2.30 p.m. depending on which time you prefer and you will embark upon a 4-hour (or longer on request) fishing expedition unlike any you’ve been on. The boat will be fully equipped with GPS, lavatory facilities, a cabin, and lifejackets. Furthermore, bait and refreshments will be provided and if you’re lucky with you to catch, we will prepare it for you in our restaurant or you can take it back with you.

We recommend you use our range of trolling rods and reels for deep sea fishing while we will also provide you with both artificial and live bait. Our deep sea fishing vessels are skippered by professional fishermen with vast game fishing experience.
