Christmas Island is located in the Central Pacific in the Republic of Kiribati. Only 144 miles north of the equator, Christmas Island is the largest coral atoll in the world.
World famous for its vast numbers of bonefish and giant trevally, the endless clear water, sand and coral flats make spotting bonefish easier than other areas. Some of our clients have landed over 50 bonefish a day. One gentleman landed 50 bones - three days in a row. From the lodge, it's only a five to 10 minute skiff ride to large, shallow flats teeming with bonefish. No long pickup rides.
During our hosted weeks, we'll also fish outside the reef for tuna, wahoo, sailfish and other species. Skiffs are employed. Skiffs are outrigger boats between thirty and forty feet long which are common to Christmas Island and are used by all of the fishing lodges.
New for 2013: Each angler will have their own guide. This is very unique, and this is the only lodge on the island that offers this service for no extra charge.
The Villages, a five-year-old fishing lodge, is run by locals which ensures true Polynesian hospitality. Located on a white sandy beach, the lodge overlooks an aqua-colored lagoon. Six bungalows with air-conditioning, covered verandahs, private bathrooms and shower. For those of you who have not been to Christmas Island, think “nice fish camp” not the “Marriott.”
Breakfast and dinner are cooked to order. Fish is always one of the dinner menu choices. Other choices during the week include: chicken, roast turkey, roast lamb, and tender rib-eye steaks. Sashimi is served at happy hour each day along with fruit, coconut, and cookies.
