Fishing

The clear turquoise waters and the grand range and diversity of species in and outside of the lagoon make Cocos a fishing paradise. 

 

Few places in the world offer bonefish fly-fishing of the quality you will find on Cocos. The exhilaration of catching bonefish is an experience not to be missed, and one that will keep you coming back for more. From October to February is the best time to go bonefishing. Head out into the lagoon’s crystal clear and calm waters and enjoy an exciting day out bonefishing. Don’t forget to inform yourself about the lagoons tides to ensure the best conditions for a perfect catch. 

 

Cocos offers great land-based fishing spots. Pelagics such as wahoo, mahi-mahi, and sailfish will keep you busy for hours. Or take the whole family fishing for sweetlip, silveries, cod and mullet. At the end of the day, BBQ your freshly caught dinner on the lagoon’s shore as the sun slowly sets over the water. 

 

Simply head down to the jetty or any beach and cast a line or visit the Visitor Centre for some insider tips. 

Whatever you choose, outstanding fishing is waiting for you on Cocos all year around.
