The Cocos Keeling Islands offer a perfect combination of open ocean trawling, deep sea jigging and lagoon sport fishing. Take your pick - the clear turquoise waters teem with marine life in and outside of the lagoon.
Few places in the world offer bonefish fly-fishing of the quality you'll find on Cocos. The exhilaration of catching bonefish up to one metre long is an experience not to be missed, and one that will keep you coming back for more.
The range and diversity of species make Cocos a fishing paradise. Pelagics such as wahoo, mahi-mahi and sailfish will keep you busy for hours, and you'll be hooked on the excitement of bringing in deep-sea species like tuna and trevally.
Fishing fun for all the family
Take the whole family fishing for sweetlip, silveries, cod and mullet, and then BBQ your freshly caught dinner on the lagoon shore as the sun goes down. Becoming more popular is spearfishing and diving to depth with no assistance to spear tuna, barracuda and wahoo.
During your stay on Cocos you can cover all the options: hire a charter boat if you're pursuing the big stuff, or simply head down to the jetty or any beach and cast a line. Tackle and gear are available for purchase.
Whatever you choose, outstanding fishing is waiting for you on Cocos all year round.
