Blue Water Explorer Ltd is now running sport fishing charters from Tonga tapu, Eua and the Ha’apai island groups from both MV Blue Water Explorer and MV Ha’apai Explorer charter vessels.
These trips have been simply amazing and we have produced some world class captures to date. One of our “hot spots” from both Nukualofa and Eua consistently produces 20- 30 sailfish strikes per day with the average specimen 45-50 kg and many larger fish up to 75 kg been released so far. In fact the World Record for sailfish of over 90 kg was taken in these exact waters. Other destinations including the Sea Mounts and these regularly produce lots of wahoo, blue marlin, yellow fin tuna, mahi mahi and XXL Dogtooth tuna! These hot spots are rarely fished and are teeming with both reef and pelagic species.
In Ha’apai you will find XXL Dogtooth tuna and monster Giant Trevally are our speciality. If you are into jigging or the use of surface poppers then you have come to one of the most exciting destinations in the world! You can expect “world class” fishing with both Doggies and GT’s over 60 kg available! Whether it monster Coral Trout, Job fish or Maori wrasse or an array of quality tasty reef species you will not be let down. One recent USA based fisherman landed over 25 species in his weeklong visit!
Our typical packages include a 7 day all inclusive packages with 5 full days fishing, all meals and accommodation, expert guides and tackle and even a whale swim in whale season!
All 7 day packages are customised and start at $3295 USD per person per week (based on 5 anglers) and are available upon request.
