Bonefishing, Giant Trevally, World-class Tuna and Wahoo Fishing

Christmas Island is only a three-hour flight from Honolulu.

60% of our clients repeat this trip

Christmas Island is so close to the equator (200 miles) that the weather does not change much and the fishing is great year-round. One guide per angler makes The Villages unique. One of the biggest advantages of The Villages is that it is very close to the fishing area. You walk down to your skiff and are typically fishing within minutes. The Villages guides and clients are dropped off on flats. The boat captain anchors where he can watch everyone, and when anglers are ready to move on to a new location, he picks them up. There are radios with each guide and captain. Fishing with Larry supplies all bonefish flies on our hosted trips.

Great Variety of Species

triggerfishing is great here

Christmas Island is world-famous for its vast numbers of bonefish, giant trevally, and endless clear water. The sand and coral flats make spotting bonefish easier than other areas. During our 2019 hosted weeks, some of our clients landed over 30 bonefish a day. Outside the reef, tuna and wahoo fishing is spectacular. And, this is the place to catch triggerfish. (Chris Wharton with triggerfish pictured above.)
There is now a $1,000.00 fine if anyone kills and keeps a bonefish.

The Villages - Two anglers per bungalow

The village lodging

The Villages, open since 2006, is run by locals for true Polynesian hospitality. The Lodge overlooks an aqua-colored lagoon. There are ten, double-occupancy, air-conditioned bungalows, each with a covered veranda, private bathroom, and shower. Wi-Fi is available for $20.00 a week. Breakfasts are cooked-to-order. Fish is always on the menu. Other choices during the week include roast turkey, lamb...
Other Activities:  Scuba diving packages are now available at the Lodge. The island has excellent birding opportunities. This is not a great place to bring your significant other unless they like to fish.
