Deep sea fishing – Weligama

Experience Overview

GENERAL DESCRIPTION: Deep sea fishing, a form of angling, can be arranged deep in the waters off Weligama. Often called offshore boat fishing, sport fishing, or big game fishing, this activity is great for amateurs and professionals. By going out on a boat into deeper waters, you’ll be exposed to a pool of deep sea fish, different than your regular shallow water fish. We are talking big game fish – sharks, tuna, marlin, and swordfish just to name a few. You normally will not find these species closer to shore, as they require open and deeper waters to feed.
