Tour in brief 

This tour will give you a first-hand experience of deep sea fishing during your trip in Sri Lanka. We will pick you up from your hotel in Mirissa, Galle, Unawatuna, or Koggala (additional charge may apply) and drive you to the Mirissa harbour where you will start your fishing tour in the deep sea.

Boats leave the picturesque harbour at Mirissa (35km south of Galle), and will take you to known fishing hotspots in the area. Chat with our guides and local fishermen as they share their experiences with you on your journey.

The Indian Ocean off the coast of southern Sri Lanka offers some of the richest sources of deep sea fish in the world. Sri Lanka Day Tours' deep sea fishing tour takes you to the heart of the warm, nutrient-rich waters, which contain a wide range of game fish. The tour is suited to experienced anglers as well as first-timers, and makes for an unforgettable adventure.

Deep sea fishing is a necessary part of life in the coastal regions, as the larger varieties of fish – an important part of the local diet – dwell in the deep sea.

Varieties of fish typically caught in these waters include Spanish mackerel, blue and black marlin, sail fish, yellow fin tuna, barracuda and giant trevally.

Arrive back in the harbour and proceed with your guide to a beach hut where you will be able to enjoy BBQ lunch with chilled beer. After lunch, you will be driven back to your hotel.


  • Personal effects for windy, rainy, and warm weather conditions should be considered

  • Getting seasick: There is always at least a light swell in the not-so-calm Indian Ocean. If it’s the first time for you on a boat in the Indian Ocean or if you tend to get seasick, we advise you to take seasickness medication recommended by your doctor, on the morning of the trip (about 1-2 hours before you enter the boat). We use Avomine and it’s freely available in any pharmacy
