Located 560 nautical miles SW of the main island of Mahe, Cosmoledo Atoll is a live-aboard operation on the SY Lone Star – an 85 foot sailing catamaran. The program runs from Thursday to Thursday, providing the perfect opportunity for those wanting to extend their trip and enjoy the famed Alphonse Island fishing program. Cosmoledo may be the ultimate saltwater destination. The sheer numbers and variety of fish has amazed anglers from across the globe; it is the ultimate playground for the traveling angler.
Cosmoledo’s large white sand flats, lagoon edges and channels are ruled by the notorious giant trevally. A plethora of other species makes Cosmoledo a truly special fishing destination. Bonefish, milkfish, Indo-Pacific permit, triggerfish, bluefin trevally and others call this amazing atoll home.
Consisting of eight beach cottages and a communal dining and entertainment area, the custom designed eco beach cottage has all the amenities one needs for a comfortable trip. Air-conditioning, ensuite bathroom, private outdoor shower and a veranda with seating area.
As a general rule, we use a 9 wt. outfit for bonefish and permit, a 10 wt. for triggerfish and milkfish and a 12 wt. for GTs, bluefin trevally and barracuda, all paired with quality reels with proven drag systems. A complete gear list will be sent upon confirmation of your trip.
The charter flight departs Mahe at 8 am for the 3 hour flight to Astove Island where guests board the SY Lone Star. The boat will depart immediately for Cosmoledo Atoll which is 18 nautical miles away. After your last day of fishing, the boat departs for either Assumption or Astove Islands for the return flight to Mahe. The SY Lone Star has been retrofitted for fly fishing expeditions. It can accommodate up to 8 anglers, guides and crew, and is a perfect base for exploring the waters of Cosmoledo Atoll. Medical evacuation insurance is mandatory for this destination.
