Fishing

We offer three kinds of fishing tours in El Nido:

Bottom Fishing
The most common form of fishing among the locals, Bottom Fishing involves dropping a nylon line with a weight, hook and bait down to the ocean floor in relatively deep waters. You can expect to catch Red and White Snappers, Yellow Fin, Spanish Mackeral and occasionally small Tuna. This is offered as a half day activity, and you are invited to a lunch or dinner prepared with the fish you caught (grilled or fried) on the tour.
Times: 8am - 12pm or 1pm -5pm

Trawling
This is a method of fishing where a line is dragged behind a moving boat in deep open waters. You can expect to catch  large Tuna, Barracuda and Spanish Mackerel. Again, this is offered as a half day activity, and you are welcome to a lunch or dinner cooked with fish caught on the tour.
Times: 6am - 11am or 1pm - 5pm

Squid Catching
Leave the town in the evening to nearby open waters and fish for squid with a line and bait as they ascend from the depths to feed at night.
*Squid Catching is best during full moon.
Time: 8pm - 2am
