Description:

Come and experience some of the great inshore sports fishing options...

Come and experience some of the great inshore sports fishing options Vanuatu has to offer. We are based at the Wahoo Bar in picture perfect Havannah Harbour, which is on the north west side of the island, allowing us easy access to some of the most consistently sheltered areas. We offer half day and full day charters starting from as little as 40,000vt. Maybe you are chasing a personal best or want to test your speed up against a dogtooth or GT, or you simply want to be out on the water with your family. Vanuatu has some great tasting fish, and we encourage our guests to take home a piece of their catch. Most resorts will be happy to cook your catch for you, or if you prefer you can have it cooked at the Wahoo Bar and enjoy a few cold drinks as the sun goes down. Visit our website for some great pics and keep up to date by following our latest fishing reports.

It was so refreshing to meet Russ and spend a days fishing with him on his beautiful boat. My teenage sons connected with him straight away and his vast experience of fishing around the world certainly was evident. Most of all he just cared and it was all about giving fantastic customer service with a personal touch. Catching some amazing... More

Did a half hour and caught nothing except for a small bait tuna. Was so excited for this trip. Paid for fishing trip and went boating instead. Just unlucky I guess:(

Spent half a day with Russ trolling then casting at the reef. No luck trolling but had an awesome time flicking poppers around the reefs, picking up some great fish. Definatly the best and most affordable charter in vanuatu. I recommend a full day charter as the half was too much of a tease!! Thanks heaps Russ I will be... More

We travelled to Vanuatu in September and fished a half day with Russ. He was well prepared and very organised, we had a fantastic day which was topped by landing a sailfish :) Will be back for sure.

It started off as a really nice morning. It got better because Russ is really well prepared, has quality fishing tackle and knows how to use it. The boat was perfect for a one day charter and Russ is a really nice guy to fish with. There are quite a few options in that magic location, depending on the weather,... More

Spent two weeks in Vanuatu and fished with Russ on Sportfish for three full days and two half days. We targeted all available species in various locations depending on the weather conditions feeling safe and comfortable at all times. The bluewater action was amazing! We caught sailfish, wahoo and dogtooth tuna. Russ had the tackle, plenty of pre-rigged baits and... More

It is obvious Russ is a very good fisherman and was determined to make sure we had a great day fishing. A good little sports boat kept the cost of the day down, and then you finish off the day at the Wahoo Bar eating the fresh tuna as sashimi that we just caught.

Last year my wife and i spent our belated honeymoon in Vanuatu. I usually go fising at least once a week, so i think my wife could tell it was killing me being this close to this amazing fishery and not having a rod. i sussed out a few of the charter operators in Vanuatu and finally decided on Russ...
