Get hooked on Fishing at Desroches Island - where the big ones seldom get away but always live to swim another day!

Desroches Island, the main island of the Amirantes group is any fisherman's dream. The Amirantes chain of islands in the Seychelles, houses a diverse abundance of species within their coral reefs, transparent blue waters and dramatic drops. It is in this pristine natural  sanctuary that sought after game fish species such as the Sailfish, Dog Tooth Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Permit and Giant Travelly abound.

Desroches Atoll, as well as the neighbouring atolls of St Joseph and Poivre, are blessed with an exceptional array of pelagic and resident fish species, making it one of the must-do world-class fishing destinations. The diversity of the shoreline provides excellent opportunities for both deep sea fishing and on-shore fly-fishing.

The Most Luxurious Fishing Destination in the Seychelles

However, what truly distinguishes Desroches Island as one of the most desirable fishing destinations in the world is the combination of abundant marine life and luxurious island accommodation alongside this aqua marine adventure.

Desroches Island is the perfect destination for fishermen travelling with non-fishing partners and families - offering that exquisite contrast of lavish luxury coupled with spectacular fishing on and around the Amiranties Islands.

The Desroches Island fishing trips are unique in the sense that anglers have the opportunity to fish three atolls during their stay. The atolls are breathtakingly beautiful, particularly St. Joseph which is the largest, covering several square kilometres and comprising many small palm-covered islands and a lovely blue lagoon in the centre. There are more Bonefish on St. Joseph, but larger schools of Indo Pacific Permit are found on Poivre.
The nearby St Joseph Lagoon is a saltwater fisherman’s dream. Thanks to the remoteness of these atolls, they are virtually still unspoilt and thus provide a true angler’s bonanza.

We are also now able to offer a combination package to fish both Desroches Island as well as Alphonse Island, a truly exclusive Seychelles fishing experience.

Cast, pop, spin and jig A-Way!

Seasoned and novice fishermen alike can test their skill against a huge variety of hard fighting challengers. The off shore species include Dogtooth Tuna, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna and Sailfish, Marlin, Dorado, Tropical Amberjack, Green and Rosy Jobfish, as well as a variety of Trevally, Snapper, Wrasse and Grouper. St Joseph and Poivre Atolls both offer exceptional onshore fly-fishing opportunities for catching Bonefish and Permit, while the odd Trevally, Barracuda, Triggerfish, Snapper and Grouper also occasionally present themselves to tempt you.

Cast-A-Way is equipped with a fleet of fishing boats, quality fishing tackle and experienced team to take you chasing your trophy fish around the atoll of your choice. Accompanied by an expert skipper or guide (a fountain of tried and tested knowledge of the area) you can experience trawling, popping, vertical jigging and fly-fishing - all within close proximity of Desroches Island. The various fishing charters and packages can be tailored to suit your trip. We practice a strict catch-and-release fishing policy, except for limited fish species that are caught for the Indulge culinary team.
