Fishing with Othman on the Pelagic One

Zanzibar, Zanzibar, Tanzania

4/5 Very Good

Pelagic One is a Wharram Polynesian inspired and designed Catamaran. She is 35ft in lengh and has an unusually wide beam of 16ft at her widest point. The vessel is designed for the feeling of openness as there is no saloon, whilst still offering you comfort with cushions and pillows placed around the vessel to enjoy the expansive views across the ocean and into the sunset.

She has fully functional Galley on the starboard side, whilst on the port side she has comfortable toilet facilities. 

The waters surrounding Zanzibar are teeming with game fish all year round.  Sailfish, dorado, tuna and wahoo are all caught regularly with the occasional marlin when we are lucky and the sea is being kind.  Most of our fishing is done around Zanzibar in the Pemba Channel but we also arrange overnight charters to Mafia Island and Lathem Island so you can experience the incredible and untouched fishing grounds those unexplored places have to offer.  We are an IGFA member and encourage catch and release.   

A full set of tackle is provided with Shimano, Fenwick, Harnell or KC rods and Shimano or Penn International reels, spooled with 50lb, 30lb or 20lb mono lines. A down rigger is also part of our standard tackle on board the boats. Clients who wish to use their own lighter tackle are welcome.

GPS, Fish Finder and Depth meter instruments are fitted on all the boats. A large selection of Lures, Rubber Skirts, Exciters and Rapalas are on board all boats.
