@ Medjumbe Island Resort
Around the Quirimbas, deep water is accessed close to the islands, which means one doesn't have to travel far for thrilling encounters with big game fish. Still little explored, the protected waters around Medjumbe produce some of the most exciting game fish to catch - species such as Kingfish, Barracuda, Dorado, Queenfish, Serra, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna and Sailfish.
The fishing boat, N'Jovo is a Gulf Craft 31' Dolphin Super Deluxe, powered by two 115hp Yamaha motors. This state-of-the-art boat has an extended T-Top to shield guests from the tropical sun. On board, the captain and gillie will present you with tackle, lures and bait, and will ensure that you have the best professional guidance, whatever your fishing ability.
One of the world's most renowned fishing destinations is accessible from the Quirimbas. St Lazarus Banks, a sea mountain 20 x 30 km in extent, rises from 2,4 km deep to within six metres of the ocean surface, bringing together a fascinating combination of marine life. We offer luxury live-aboard boat trips on our 42-ft catamaran Broadbill, based at Pemba, to St Lazarus Banks for the ultimate game fishing extravaganza.
