This adds up to an excellent sport fishery.  Dakar and Saly offer excellent access to deep water just off shore and now a direct shipping channel has been cut through the sand bar in St Louis allowing access to the Blue water within 10kms of the dock, this means with our fast 9mt boats you are fishing within a maximum of 35 mins. Brand new international class gear has been used to equip all the boats and 2 international Guides are skippering the boats. Large Sailfish and Marlin abound in season and 10 – 12 strikes a day is not unusual. The prices are competitive with any sport fishing destination in the world, and a lot cheaper than most. We offer three different areas to stay with several different hotels to meet all tastes.
