Hotel Updates: Fishing Adventures off Denis Private Island

Honeymooners Get More Than They Bargain For on First Ever Fishing Trip

Honeymooners, Olly and Clare from the U.K. got more than they bargained for when they decided on going on a fishing excursion while staying on Denis Private Island, Seychelles. Olly and Clare set off with Denis Private Island's expert fishing guide, Rolly - who has been on the island for about 20 years -  aboard the island's private fishing vessel  Lady Claire for a half-day (4 hour) fishing adventure.

Not long into the trip, Olly and Clare had the thrill and excitement of landing a 75kg Black Marlin - the coveted prize of any serious fisherman! Not just beginners luck, the waters around Denis Private Island are teeming with life, and are well known worldwide as a great place to catch Black Marlin, and other prized sport-fishing species. 

In line with Denis Private Island's emphasis on conservation and preserving the island's pristine ecosystem for future generations,  the black marlin caught by Olly and Clare was released, after being tagged as part of the Seychelles Sport Fishing Club / The Billfish Foundation's tag-and-release program.

Denis Private Island is the perfect place for beginner and experienced anglers alike to come and experience the thrill and adrenaline of fishing for black marlin, as well as other sport-fishing favourites such as blue marlin, dog-tooth and yellow-fin tuna, sailfish and dorado. Just a few miles north of the island, the sea floor drops rapidly into the oceanic abyss spawning a frantic cascade of life from algae through to the big game fish. Daily charters are available with the island's experienced crews and expert fishing equipment.
