Hunt The Black Marlin and More Big Game

Every year during the beginning of July and the mid of September, there are Black Marlin coming up to the Watamu reefs. This time is not only high season for Black Marlin, but also plenty of Tuna, Kingfish, Sailfish, Giant Trevally, big Barracuda and Wahoo.

With this group trip we targeting to catch the Black Marlin with our trolling and spinning rods. Most of the time we troll with livebaits or using teasers for Marlin and Sailfish to get them on the spin rods.

On one or two days, we are also able to go to the North Kenya Banks for Tuna and Marlin fishing. The banks are full with good size Yellowfin Tuna.
