Top-notch offshore fishing

Providence | Seychelles

Atoll entdecken

The Providence Atoll is located 700 km southwest of Mahe and 56 km north of the Farquhar Atoll, the southernmost atoll of the Seychelles. This remote atoll has a total area of 345 km², including the large lagoon that stretches 55 km from north to south and 14 km from east to west. The atoll consists of two islands, Providence North and Cerf Island, and a shallow lagoon system with vast flats and sandbanks interconnected by numerous channels to the ocean. The large ear-shaped lagoon with secure lee anchorages provides easy access to fantastic fly-fishing grounds with a skiff. It is one of two destinations in the Seychelles where it is possible to catch bump head parrotfish.

Into the wild

Like many of the other atolls in Seychelles, the Providence Atoll is a true wilderness for fly fishing. The vast flats, the extensive lagoon system, and the connecting channels offer fly fishermen the opportunity to wade through 345 km² of pristine sandy flats, turtle grass banks, surf zones, and lagoon edges, targeting a variety of species. Anglers can aim and cast for giant trevallies, bumphead parrotfish, triggerfish, bluefin trevallies, milkfish, Indo-Pacific permit, Napoleon wrasse, bonefish, groupers, snappers, barracudas, and much more. The Providence Atoll is renowned for its fantastic offshore fishing for sailfish and tuna, which can be done from skiffs or from the aft deck of the Quo Vadis.


Meet the Fleet

Come aboard and be welcomed by an experienced captain, a first mate, a steward, and a chef. They will ensure that the cruise is unforgettable. All fly-fishing excursions to Providence are accompanied by three experienced fly-fishing guides with three specially designed shallow skiffs. Angler teams will be divided into pairs of two anglers per skiff and guide.

Exclusive Fly Fishing Adventure

Our Providence Atoll trips are limited to six fly fishermen per week, accommodated in three of the four fully air-conditioned double guest cabins with private bathrooms.

Fly Reels

It's crucial that reels for GT fishing have a reliable drag system and sufficient backing (50-80 lbs) capacity (minimum 250 - 300 meters). Also, for Bonefish and Permit, there should be at least 200 meters of backing on the reel.

Fly Lines

It's essential that fly lines are suitable for tropical conditions. Brands like Rio or Scientific Angler offer a good selection of appropriate lines. Bring at least two backup lines for GT fishing and one for Permit!

Giant Trevally: The main lines to consider are floating lines. However, it's also important to have a full sinking line, as fishing in deeper waters is common.

Permit, Triggerfish, and Bonefish: Choosing a floating line that matches the rod weight is the right choice.

Leader Material: Fluorocarbon or Nylon

Giant Trevally and other predators: 100 lbs Permit, Triggerfish: 15 lbs and 20 lbs Bonefish: 12 lbs and 15 lbs

Giant Trevally: It is crucial that GT flies are tied on very strong hooks.
