Deep Sea & Fly Fishing

Deep Sea & Fly Fishing, Kenya

Watamu offers some of the finest deep sea fishing in the world with a huge variety of different species close to shore. Black, blue and striped marlin, sailfish, broadbill, wahoo and yellowfin tuna are just some of the species available. All the boats operating out of Watamu have a tag and release policy.

If you are interested in fly fishing this can also be arranged. Many people have broken records for fly fishing in Kenya. It is recommended that you book in advance as the boats do get booked up early.
