Farquhar Atoll – Seychelles

Location: Southernmost atoll in the Seychelles

Fishery: Let’s call it the Seychelles Slam – bonefish, indo-pac permit, and giant trevally. Add a triggerfish, bumphead parrotfish or milkfish and you’ve got the Grand Slam. Farquhar is the place to do it. It is an incredible place to fish with its varied terrain including flats, channels and surf zones. Once the lagoon and flats flood with the tide sight fishing and wading become difficult, so be ready to head out to the blue water with the big artillery for GTs, barracuda, wahoo, yellowfin tuna, dogtooth tuna, grouper, bohar snapper and sailfish.

Accomodations: The lodge is a basic guesthouse with a few simple commodities for comfort: electricity, air conditioning and hot water. Meals (a delicious mix of Creole and international food) are served outside in a covered dining area over looking the water with a magnificent view.

Fishing Program:

  • 2 anglers per boat with a guide
  • Majority of the fishing is done wading
  • When tides and conditions are right for it GT and bluewater
    fishing is done from the boat

  • Day 5-10 Six days of guided fishing on the flats of the Farquhar
  • Day 11 Charter flight from Farquhar to Mahe. Depart for home

2020 Rates: $11,250 plus $175 conservation fee per person for a 7 night/6 day package.
