Pattaya is situated right at the heart of a pictorial natural environment which affords visitors the chance of partaking in a diverse range of activities that provide a break from non-stop partying. Going fishing is not the first thing holidaymakers in Pattaya think of but it has gained more than a few fans in recent times.
Deep-sea fishing trips out in the Gulf of Thailand are one of the options. At Bali Hai Pier, Pattaya Diving and Fishing is a reputable operator of fishing boat charters and cruises. A glance through the firm’s gallery of photographs will show that their claim they have netted all of Pattaya’s record-breaking catches might possibly be true.
The firm’s skippers and crews know the waters close to Pattaya well and are able to pinpoint the best spots for different species according to the weather conditions on a particular day. They say baiting hooks with live squid is sure to bring the fish running and it is then only a matter of enjoying the game of trying to haul them in.
Pattaya Diving and Fishing say people should tell them whether they want to angle for monsters or just for a bit of light entertainment. Barracudas, queen fish, groupers and cobia are better suited to the latter style of fishing while sailfish, stingrays and sharks offer a distinct challenge which only people with a good level of personal fitness can hope to match.
