Farquhar Atoll

One of the most exotic saltwater fly fishing destinations in the world

Located 400 miles SW of Mahe, Farquhar Atoll is the Southern-most atoll in the Seychelles and is accessed via a one hour and 45 minutes charter flight. Known for its species variety, the flats consist of hard white sand, turtle grass and broken coral which makes for perfect wading conditions for the variety of species that roam the flats. Bluewater fly fishing is also available.

Fishing

Farquhar offers sight fishing for giant trevally, bonefish, Indo-Pacific permit, triggerfish, and bumphead parrotfish to name a few or with bluewater close by, try your luck at some of the monsters of the deep; sailfish, tuna and wahoo. High quality wading boots are required.

Accommodation

In April 2016, Cyclone Fantala devastated Farquhar Atoll. For the fall 2016 season, the program will be operated as a liveaboard on the vessel, Maya Dugong, with the intention of building a new cyclone proof guesthouse in time for the second-half of the season starting March 2017.

Gear

The outfitter recommends a 9wt for bonefish and permit, 10wt for triggerfish and milkfish and a 12wt for the trevally, bumphead parrotfish and bluewater, all matched with a quality reel with a proven drag system. A complete gear list will be sent upon confirmation of the trip.

Trip Specifics

Farquhar Atoll is accessed via a one hour forty five minute private charter from the main island of Mahe. Most US and UK clients access Mahe via Dubai with Emirates Airlines or Abu Dhabi via Etihad Airways. The Maya Dugong is a retired research vessel that has been upgraded and modified for long-range fly fishing trips. The 7 spacious guestrooms have en-suite bathrooms with showers. The guestrooms along with the dining room and lounge are air-conditioned for your comfort.

Rates

The 7-night/6-day package is $8,500 per person sharing. For the 2016/2017 season, it will run from late November to mid-December and then from March to early May. The package includes your Mahe round-trip charter flight. Medical evacuation insurance is mandatory due to the remote location.
