Sport Fishing

Indonesia is an archipelago nation that offers unbeatable deep-sea and sport fishing opportunities.  Several of our El Aleph crew are keen fishermen and know the best spots for fishing. We fish outside of the marine parks in the open ocean and for those who are keen to try spearfishing, there is no better destination than Indonesia.

Best Locations for Sport Fishing in Indonesia

There is no shortage of choices when deciding where to go sport fishing in Indonesia. With multiple seas to cast off in and an exceptional array of fish to catch, sport fishing anywhere in Indonesia is thrilling and exhilarating. Here are some of the best regions to cruise for those who are keen to indulge in some angling while aboard.

The Banda Sea and the Spice Islands

The Banda Islands are a paradise for those who want to enjoy world-class sea fishing. The best catches of the day in the Banda Sea can be anything from Marlin, Jackfish, Broadbill, Swordfish, or Yellow Fin Tuna to even a Wahoo. After a day of fighting fish allow our chef to make it all worthwhile with your catch prepared exactly to your liking.

The Savu Sea and Alor

The currents that run around the islands of Alor, Ternate, Pantar, and Pura create a frenzy of activity on the coral reefs – which in turn attracts some impressive predators. Dogtooth Tuna is a possible catch here along with Baracuda, Snapper, Marlin and Wahoo.

The Flores Sea and Komodo

For those who want adventure then there is no better destination than the Flores Sea and Komodo. Famous for its population of Komodo Dragons, this region has some fantastic opportunities for exploring on land too. While parts of the region are Marine Protected Areas, we move outside of these zones to the open ocean where common catches include Marlin, Tuna, Sailfish, Mahi-Mahi, and Giant Trevally.

The Ceram Sea and Raja Ampat

Cruising through the Raja Ampat islands and the Ceram Sea leads to some of the most impressive and spectacular fishing opportunities. Fishing outside of the world famous Misool Eco Resort No-Take Zone, there is an overflowing abundance of marine life – and the chances for impressive catches – both in size and species abound. Common catches in the Ceram Sea include Mahi Mahi, Yellow Fin and Dog Tooth Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Giant Trevally, Jacks and Snappers.

Sport Fishing Aboard El Aleph

If you prefer to travel light, el Aleph carries 7 complete sets of fishing equipment for trolling or jigging, and our crew is able to advise about the best setup according to where and what you would like to fish.

For guests who prefer to bring their own fishing equipment, our crew will ensure it is available for you to cast off whenever you like. We access the best fishing spots using our zodiac tender which puts you closer to the water and allows for better control over your line.

For those who want a full day out on the water, we can combine your fishing days with anything from beach champagne picnics to ice-cold beers served on the tender.
