Deep Sea Fishing on Weligama Bay

Back Back

A boat will take you across to the bay where you can spend either half a day or the whole day out at sea, floating about or trying out some deep-sea fishing. The waters off the coast are teeming with a myriad of fish including the Spanish Mackerel, Sailfish, GT, (Great Trevally, Jack Trevally) Snapper, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi which are quite common in addition to the rare Marlins and Swordfish. If the conditions are right and with a little bit of luck you may be able to catch a couple. A light breakfast as well as fruit and drinks will be provided so you could enjoy an exciting day.

Experience Overview

The experience advocates conservation and responsible fishing. Therefore, any catch you make will be released back into the sea. The crew are experienced and can take you out into the bay in a smaller boat of 2 pax or a larger boat with 10 pax. The journey begins at 6 a.m. and you can choose either the half day or the full day option which would finish at 6 p.m.

Managing Expectations

It is important to remember that, whilst they are experts in their field, the people who run or host our experiences are not necessarily used to working in the tourism industry and may not offer the level of service you would find at a five-star hotel. For example, instead of a formal lecture, you may get a relaxed conversation where open discussion is encouraged. All of our hosts are, however, extremely engaging, knowledgeable and passionate about educating visitors about their chosen subject and we have worked with them to ensure that they deliver worthwhile, fulfilling experiences. We welcome feedback, so please let us know what you thought and if you think any improvements could be made to the experiences we offer.
