For your fishing in Phuket, we run 6 of these tough and functional Prasert fishing Thai-style fishing vessels. They are all very much the same just with different cabin design so they are chartered out by roster so all crews get their fair share of work. These are so popular when looking for the best things to do in Phuket. The boats ranging from 42 to 48 foot are inspected and fully serviced on the slipway annually are fully licensed as are the Captains and crews. The captains and crew are Phuket local people with years of experience after growing up on the boats. Some speak English well but most have enough to get by for a day fishing. Our office (fluent English) is always on call from the Captain if anything urgent or important needs to be communicated.
Chartering a boat is one of the best things to do in Phuket when looking for Phuket activities. Whether looking for serious fishing or a leisure activity in Phuket, Phuket Fishing Charters has the boat to fit your Phuket excursion.

Here is an amateur VDO of a customer landing a small sailfish. The hook is removed and then it is released. The VDO turns the right way up itself.

*****Exceeds Expectations!! Steve went well above and beyond to make our fishing adventure a reality! I can't say enough about our trip and the service we experienced. The boat was great, the crew was very helpful and friendly, and the food they cooked for us was delicious! By far, the best fishing trip I've had abroad!! Thank you again Steve, for everything you did for us! I hope to make it back to Phuket to go fishing with your charter again some day! Verified Tripadvisor .
You troll for about 90 minutes then bottom fish and then troll again. We only caught one king mackerel trolling but caught lots and lots of grouper bottom fishing. Lunch was cooked on the boat and we ate our fresh catch which was delicious. Abu, our guide for the day was super fun. He loves to sing. Overall a great day. Verified Tripadvisor December 2018
