The Seychelles offers some of the richest fishing grounds in the world, a multi faceted and exciting fishing destination for amateurs and professionals alike. Enthusiasts arrive from all over the world to battle with world-record holding marlins, barracudas and sailfish. There are 40 different varieties of game fish in Seychelles rich waters, which include Dorado, Wahoo, Tuna, and Job fish. Fishing seasons are governed by trade winds. From May to September they blow from the southeast, which is great for Big Game Fishing.
However, the seas can sometimes be rough during this period. The Northwest winds blow from November to February and brings with it calmer seas, which is ideal for bottom fishing. In general the months of October and April are the most enjoyable due to its calm seas.

Water Sports centres are located next to the big hotels and on the most touristy beach of Seychelles: Beau Vallon in the north of Mahe. However, motorised water sports are limited to Beau-Vallon beach only. This is a result of Seychelles’ strict environmental laws to protect the marine life.
