The pristine waters of the South Pacific Ocean are absolutely teeming with marine life so it’s only natural that when visiting this idyllic destination, avid anglers go searching for truly unique on-water experiences.
Today there is a growing fleet of world-class Rivieras based in this beautiful part of the world, some commissioned by exclusive private resorts to help create the ultimate offshore fishing adventure for guests.
Everything from blue marlin and yellowfin tuna to wahoo, Pacific sailfish and giant trevally help make the South Pacific pure paradise for game fishers.
Located on a secluded private island covering 12 square kilometres in fabled Fiji, the seven-star Laucala Resort and its 25 Fijian-styled villas covers just 4.5 square kilometres, which means that the vast majority of the land is an unspoiled wilderness of jungle and coconut plantations, home to some of the archipelago’s rarest birds and animals.
They say Fiji is home to the happiest people on Earth and it’s little wonder when you consider the fantastic fishing in the big blue that beckons ‘bula’ ever so subtly from beyond the turquoise, coral-hemmed lagoons.
On Laucala, guests are invited to enjoy a superb sports fishing experience aboard a luxurious Riviera 41 Open Flybridge named Laucala.
“The Riviera 41 offers the perfect setting for pleasure boating and exciting game fishing excursions,” says the resort.
“Led by an experienced skipper, day trips aboard the Riviera 41 Open Flybridge take guests to prime fishing spots beyond the private island’s shallow lagoons, with gourmet meals prepared by the experienced Laucala crew along the way.
“The culinary delicacies, fresh drinks and high-spirited atmosphere as well as, importantly, the likelihood of a good catch, make for the perfect day on the open sea.”
Laucala Island and resort are within easy reach of international hubs thanks to regular flights to Fiji from Australia, Hong Kong, Korea, New-Zealand and the United States. Upon arrival at Nadi International Airport, guests are transferred to a private lounge prior to the 50-minute flight via the resort’s King Air B200 jet.
