TIOMAN ISLAND GAME FISHING CHARTERS

In the 70s, TIME Magazine selected Tioman Island as one of the world's most beautiful islands. Tioman Island located in the South China Sea, is a small island 32 km off the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia in the state of Pahang. The Island is 39 km long and 12 km wide. Tioman Island has eight main villages, the largest is Tekek in the north. The densely forested island is sparsely inhabited, and is surrounded by numerous coral reefs, making it a popular snorkeling and scuba diving destination. There are also many very nice beach resorts and bungalows around the island, In Tekek village there are Duty-free stores (Tioman is a duty-free zone) and a small marina, the small airport is also located here. The marine area around Tioman Island and eight other nearby islands have been declared as marine parks and marine reserves and fishing is not allowed within two nautical miles of the Tioman coast, this is to protect the breeding areas and the corals from mostly the commercial fishing fleet. Apart from its diverse marine life, the inland rainforest area was protected in 1972 as the Pulau Tioman Wildlife Reserve and the interior of Tioman Island got a pristine tropical jungle with many jungle treks you can explore when not out fishing. The island is served by ferries from the Malaysian mainland, with departures from Mersing and Endau (Gemok) The Ferry is 30 Ringit one way plus 5 Ringit for the national park fee. There is also a propeller plane service by Berjaya Air from Kuala Lumpur.
 

Tioman Island is a fantastic holiday destination and a world class game fishing destination for Sailfish, Wahoo, Tuna, Cobia, Dorado, Narrow Barred Spanish Mackerel and juvenile Black Marlin. Tioman Island also offers anglers a range of light jigging and bottom fishing for various species. Tioman Island is a very safe place to visit for you and your family, street crime is Non-existent and the locals are very friendly, the Tioman beaches are of world-class and the local food is some of the best you will ever eat.

There are many very nice beach resorts on Tioman, Tunamaya and Japamala are our recommended top-end resorts on Tioman. If you are looking for an inexpensive resort on Tioman, the Selesa Tioman Apartment is good value for money. Many of the beach front resorts on the island got their own jetties, so you can be picked up in the morning by our boats just in front of your resort and dropped off there after the fishing trip.


East of Tioman Island, the waters are deeper and here you will find nice size Wahoo, Dorado and Black Marlin (50-300 lb size). There are many Fish Aggregating Devices (or FADs) in the area that holds a lot of Dorado and other game fish like Cobia, Wahoo, Narrow Barred Spanish Mackreel and Sailfish. South of Tioman at Palau Aur and Palau Pemanggil the fishing for Narrow barred King Mackerel and bigger Marlin is good and bottom fishing and jigging for other species is an alternative to the game fishing.
