Your large twin-engine craft boat departs from Zanzibar - Ras Nungwi at 0630 hours. Fishing Zanzibar is located in Nungwi, a fishing village on the north-western tip of Zanzibar Island where the fishing grounds of Zanzibar, Pemba and the famous Pemba Channel are not even a stone's throw away.


Fishing is by trolling a combination of lures or natural dead baits (Ballyhoo or strips) or live bait. Billfish such as striped, black and blue marlin as well as the acrobatic and dazzling sailfish and elusive spearfish abound in these crystal waters.


Yellow fin tuna, Dorado, Wahoo, Barracuda, Kingfish (Trevally), King & Queen Mackerel and the lesser game fish such as Bonito tuna, Skipjack tuna and Rainbow Runner provide endless hours of adrenalin filled game fishing action out on the water.


African Spice Safaris uses a local company who are members of the International Game Fish Association and actively encourage a catch and release policy of all billfish and sharks unless they are likely to be East Africa, all Africa, World record fish or the skipper believes the fish is unlikely to survive release.
