Fishing on Sea Gypsy Longtail Boats
Important! Please note
These trips are not for young children or the unfit. These are Sea Gipsy working boats and have no facilities.
Night fishing can be done any time the weather permits although a full moon seriously adds to this magical night out.
Leaving the Gypsy Village in Rawai around 4pm we head for Coral Island and trawl or jig for squid waiting for dusk when we will drop anchor and bottom fish as we watch the magnificent sunset.
We are looking for snapper or barracuda but the catch could be just about anything.
Booking a Gypsy Trip involves visiting the Gypsy village 1 or 2 days before your proposed trip in order to organize times (tides) and check the weather forecast. The weather in low season is particularly unreliable!
This is a good opportunity to get to know your hosts and organize exactly what you would like to do and for how long, ie. Snorkeling (bring your own gear) Trolling, Bottom fishing, watch them dive to their own traps, dive with them, day/night, BBQ on beach, etc.
It is also a good time to pay your deposit and have a look round the village or have a fresh seafood meal.
Beach parties for up to 30 people can be catered for and are great for birthday beach bashes.
All the beer you can drink and all the fish you can eat plus a bonfire on the beach!
