Fishing in Niue is legendary with very deep water accessed almost immediately from launching, so visitors can spend their time fishing, not travelling.
Black, blue and striped Marlin; Skipjack and Yellowfin Tuna; Red Bass, Mahimahi, Sailfish, Wahoo and Giant Trevally, amongst many others, are commonly encountered.
Fly-fishing, sea fishing, crab fishing, net casting, underwater fishing – in New Caledonia, fishing is simultaneously a leisure activity, a means of subsistence and a part of the local heritage. With either ancestral or modern techniques, fishing is a part of the DNA of the South Pacific archipelago.
Fly-fishing to get back to nature – ranked in the top 5 sites in the world for fly-fishing, New Caledonia is a paradise for those who love this sport. In harmony with nature and its rhythm, fishermen are invited in the North part of the Lagoon during low tide, and if they are patient and humble, they can try to capture big catches in this idyllic setting.
