Fish Aggregating Device (FAD)

In Vava'u we have three new FAD's which are situated approximately  six miles offshore in 1000/1200 metres deep of water. These FAD's  attract a variety of species, including Mahi Mahi, Yellow fin, Skipjack  Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Spanish Mackerel, etc. On a full day  fishing it is possible to visit all three FAD's.

The latest FAD deployment has been funded by the Vava'u Sports  Fishing Club with funds raised by TIGFA and Tournaments held over the  past 15years.

We reserve the right to cancel/postpone charter periods due to  adverse weather and sea conditions in the interest of safety. We will do  our best to reschedule and if not possible we will arrange a refund  less an administration fee.
