Tip #1 - Correct group size
Almost every fishing destination has a number of operators within it who offer a range of packages. Not every boat takes 4 anglers, some take 6 and some only 2. When looking at your next fishing holiday make sure you have the right number of people for the boat you are chartering, otherwise you will end up paying for a boat that is too big for you. Always remember that the quality of the operation is not directly proportionate to the size of the boat. If you don't have a group of people to travel and fish with, why not check out Fishing Getaways' Share Charters
. On these charters, we do the work for you in making up the group and you only pay a per person price!
Tip #2 - Know your destination
Some destinations will take 5 minutes to get to the fishing grounds and others can take up to (or more than) an hour. If you know this about your chosen destination, then you can possibly reduce your charter from a full day to a half day to save a bit of money and still get a couple of great days on the water. The Cook Islands
is a great example of this, 5 minutes to the fishing grounds so every moment possible is spent with a line in the water!
Tip #3 - Go local
Part of any great international fishing experience is experiencing the culture and hospitality of the local people. By booking local accommodation and charters you are getting to see the best of a destination where you are not shielded by the concrete walls of a (very expensive) 5 star resort but truly embraced by your surroundings. It is usually more affordable to book this way and if you have done your research, it can be a truly rewarding experience. Check out the Fishing Getaways Samoa Packages
